The History of the Rocking Chair

Historically, carpenters made rocking chairs from wood, plastic, or metal. Most furniture pieces we use and love today are European in origin, but rocking chairs are an all-American invention. The first rocking chair came about in the 1700s for nursing women.

Today, rocking chairs are a staple of children’s bedrooms and nurseries, and parents still use them to rock and soothe children. Wicker and cane rocking chairs offer style and comfort without the hefty price tag that usually comes with upholstered furniture.

Style and Comfort in One

Antique rocking chairs are relaxing places to sit and think. These rustic yet stylish pieces remind us all of simpler times. You can find minimalist Scandinavian rocking chairs to work with various home decor styles. You can choose a more modern 1960s plastic rocking chair or a rustic 18th-century rocking chair option to match your home perfectly. Antique rocking chairs are ideal for virtually any room—indoors or outdoors.

Over the years, the rocking chair has evolved at the hands of various designers. Some Regency rocking chairs maintain a simple structure, whereas other Art Noveau rocking chairs feature small cushions with pops of color. No matter what you’re looking to get out of your antique rocking chair, you can count on us to have an option that suits your needs.
