The rocking chairs, as we all know, are particular types of chairs, which allows the swinging (and so the "waggle") of the seated person. What few people know is, that this special and comfortable invetion has been invented by an american scientist, who also fought for the policy, during the American Revolution, or rather Benjamin Franklin.

Because a rocking chair?

The purpose of the rocking chair is obviously to afford to relax. Taking advantage of that pleasant swinging, it is easy to forget the worries and focus only on that moment of relaxation. Maybe taking the opportunity to have a nap or to read a magazine. When we think of a rocking chair, the memories of our childhood immediately resurface, and, maybe, we are reminded to the figure of our granfather, while he was reading the newspaper and slowly swung with his feet. Who has not ever happened to try one?

Rocking chairs: how are they made?

The rocking chairs are formed by two arches at the base, which allow to the chair to swing without running the risk of tipping over, as the weight of the chair, which is the focal point, is focused on the centre of the arches. This is the why, if we try to push with the feet on the floor, we can get a fair movement of the chair. These two arches are usually made of wood or metal, as well as the backrest and the base of the seat. It is the coating adopted, that makes the difference on the comfort of the rocking chair. This can be in fabric, leather or ecoleather or it may be absent, as it was more common a few years ago.

The history of the rocking chairs

The first rocking chairs were very basic and they reproduced to the best the image, that you can have of a normal chair on two arches. They were mostly on wood, without any type of coating and that's why the seat and the backrest were a bit more uncomfortable than it is now. In the last years, it has in fact reserced a greater convenience and a more modern design for these chairs. Today we can fing rocking chairs in ecoleather and leather, in fabric or in rattan ( a type of etnic wood, which is easy to fold) and synthetic rattan. We are really spoiled for choice on the material to be preferred and, in this case, this tipically falls on our personaly taste and on what we think is the more comfortable. But, in addition to comfort, it become equally important, that they perfectly adapt to the rest of the furniture, we have chosen for our house. If once was possible to choose generally just one type of rocking chair, today there is a really wide choice, so much so that it is difficult to decide which one is the best solution. There are the classic ones painted with bright colors, such as red, blue or yellow, and others that represent real unique design items, becoming the protagonist of the room more for their beauty and uniqueness, than for the use they should have. There have been made also rocking chairs in baby size, so that even your children can enjoy a privileged comfort in their bedroom. After all the reason why we love them is that remind us to the times we were kids and we liked relax us in our cradle, so who can better than a child remember those pleasant moments passed recently? Thanks to all these features, the rocking chairs can be placed in any location that is presented to them, from a little flat, to a great villa or an elegant country house. You have just to choose the right one, that can adapt to the rest of the furniture, for example, in the case of the house in the countryside, a rocking chair in rattan is the best choice. Instead, if you have a minimal flat and you're not sure of what kind of chair choose, you can thrown yourself into the classic, so you do not run the risk of making mistakes. A wooden rocking chair is able to adapt itself well with any type of furniture, rather it could be the contrast element you was looking for giving a touch of liveliness to your house! In the case you have particular and refined tastes and you want that these are reflected in the design of your house, you have to focus on the details of your rocking chair. There are some, that are real works of art and can transform your humble house in a little museum. For example, besides the colorful ones, there are some composed of resin woven wires, others whose arches have lost their original form becoming one with the chair and others from the most bizarre forms. And, to go back to the comfort, there have been created even the rocking chairs with the place for your smartphone or table, so you can keep texting or surfing the net, swinging with lightness on your modern rocking chair!
