Rocking Chair / April 30, 2018 / Reyna Bush
The delicately crafted wicker weaves are welcome in most home interior themes. The classic elegance of wicker makes it look like an antique piece of furniture that has been inherited from another generation. This is the real beauty of handcrafted wicker. Whether for indoor or outdoor use, wicker has been very popular. The comfortable wicker rocking chairs are sought after by children and adults alike. Whether they are placed indoors or in a well-covered patio or porch, these pieces of furniture are spots of relaxation.
Wicker rocking chairs were introduced in the 1860's. They were cheaper than wooden rocking chairs, but they weren't nearly as durable. They did sell well though because the wicker could be twisted into a variety of designs. One of the most valuable wicker rocking chairs from this era features an American flag that was weaved into the design on the back of the chair. We have seen many varieties of rocking chairs through the years, and they are still well loved by people of all ages. You can purchase them at retail stores, furniture stores, and get them passed down to you from family members. Some manufacturers specialize in making custom, handmade rocking chairs. You can find out about them on the internet.
