Rocking Chair / April 30, 2018 / Ashlee Meyers
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.
The rocking chair is one of the most popular chair types today, used by many people around the world for relaxation and relieving stress. Since its emergence around 1700s, the rocking chair has been helping thousands of people sleep better through relaxation, relieve lower back pain for the elderly people and pregnant women, and calm crying babies.
