Rocking Chair / April 28, 2018 / Jodie Gilmore
What do you think of when you think of a rocking chair? Grandpa rocking on the porch enjoying his after dinner pipe of tobacco? Maybe you get a picture of Grandma sitting by the fire knitting furiously and then falling asleep with the cat on her lap? What about a mother nursing her new born baby until the baby eventually falls to sleep (or the mother does). There is no other piece of furniture which quite evokes our memories to the same extent as the humble rocking chair, many illustrators even picture Santa Claus is a rocking chair, having forty winks before setting off back up the chimney. This chair has been an inherent part of our history and, as with so many other things has evolved a long way from its crude beginnings.
Wooden rocking chairs are by far the most common type and can be found in many homes. It's a great idea to use rocking chair cushions if you have a wooden chair because that can help to keep your bum from getting sore, which is a real possibility if everything is hard wood. Cushions can make your seat much more comfortable however and you have nothing to worry about. This will make it so you can spend hours and hours rocking away just enjoying life. Just imagine, how much nicer could life get? Well not a whole lot really.
