Rocking Chair / March 12, 2018 / Shawn Patel
Today's rocking chairs are distinguished by their diverse materials and cutting edge, sometimes outrageous, designs. One of the modern era's most unique was created by Ron Arad in 1990. The single volume rocking arm chair is made of steel that also tilts upward when it is not used. Meanwhile, Peter Opsvik of Norway created the \"gravity balance\" in 1999. This ergonomic rocking chair allows the sitter to relax or stretch through its four positions. Another unique one was created in 1999 by Illka Terho and Teppo Asikaine of Sweden. Known as the \"chip lounger,\" this rocking chair is shaped like a surfboard. In 2001, MAC Sports, USA released the \"malibu\" rocking chair, which can be folded up completely into its own carrying case.
A rocking chair will also give her new sensations in motion. This will be a learning experience, like the first time she took the swing on your lap. With a kids rocking chair, it is safer and she can sit herself on it without much assist from you. She can use the same chair while leafing through her board book, draw pictures or play \"grandma.\" But the best thing of all is feeling being gently rocked as you have rocked her to sleep hundreds of times.
