Rocking Chair / December 1, 2017 / Ashlee Meyers
A rocking chair is one of those things that has become a timeless piece of artwork that just outshines most other kinds of chairs. You don't see people fighting over which chair they get to sit in, unless of course the chair in question is a rocking chair. They are just so comfortable that everyone wants to be able to sit in one if it's available.
Basically the rocking chair has two curved bands of wood or rockers fixed to the bottom of the chair. It contacts the chair with the floor only on two points that allows the occupant of the seat to rock back and forth with the minimum of effort. It is a comfortable chair to sit on even without the push factor - it automatically adjusts with the centre of gravity of the sitter for ergonomic advantage. It relieves stress. Built up on this basic structure are many types of rocking chairs having springs and gliders. Greek and Roman chairs influenced the neo-classical designs. One of the latest Norwegian models can take on four positions.
