Rocking chairs are the most personal expression of chair design.
They must be comfortable, inviting and pleasant to look at.
They can be both artfully crafted and a well crafted work of art.
Form and function meet in the design of a good rocking chair.

A good rocking chair evokes images of grandparents and presidents.
It’s where you go to comfort a small child.
It’s where you go to read a good book.
It’s where you go to enjoy the ancient therapy of rhythmically rocking.

The humble rocking chair has earned a special place among our furniture traditions.
No front porch is complete without a rocking chair.
No fireplace is fully functional without a fire-side rocking chair.
No wood workers journey is finished without having made a rocking chair.
