Every modern children's space needs a place to sit for Mom or Dad. No need to settle for an ugly, over-sized glider anymore — there are now many stylish and functional rockers and gliders available to accessorize your child's room. All of these pieces can easily transfer into a family room after your baby needs are done. — Andrika from Nursery Notations
Probably one of the most comfortable modern gliders on the market, with great lines as well as multiple fabric and piping options.
Available in an assortment of dwell fabrics, this is a glider with a truly unique shape. More of a mid-century design to me, the low profile helps make this piece blend in with the rest of the nursery.
The bentwood frame and adjustable back make this a beautiful and functional piece.
The same sleek look of an Eames rocker, but more comfort with a higher back and additional arm support. The chrome base has me hooked!
The Joya Rocker has a small footprint — perfect for small spaces, yet still stylish and comfortable.
Clean lines and a sleek, no-fuss design make this a favorite of mine. Would look great in a beach house!
With a clean minimal silhouette, this rocking chair basically blends in with its surroundings. A nice pick for the true minimalist.
Beautiful design with organic lines. A wonderful interpretation of a classic piece. The cross bat at the bottom also adds additional stability and a smoother ride.
I like this chair because it is truly an heirloom piece of furniture. Reminiscent of a vintage chair but with new construction.
A modern take on the traditional wing chair. I like this rocker because it is extremely comfortable, and the shape and design are visually appealing in almost any setting. The lines are just soft enough yet structured.
A modern glider with ergonomic proportions. The wool fabrics available for upholstery are functional and comfortable.
A curved version of the Luca glider, this offers additional head and neck support for rest. Also a statement piece in a nursery!
Elegant curved lines and fun fabric choices make this a functional and energetic piece for any room.
A masculine glider with strong lines and an extra tall back — perfectly proportioned for daddies and tall moms!
Modern appeal with a reasonable price tag and comfortable fabric make this glider suitable for most budgets.
The soft leather fabric on this glider helps modernize the curved lines. This is a very comfortable glider which can blend into a traditional or modern setting.Buy on Houzz
It is amazing that this looks like a normal chair yet also functions as a glider and a recliner — multitasking at its best. I think this is a very interesting piece.
Nurseryworks had one of the first "modern" gliders in the marketplace. The Cole glider has a good price point and I'm a big fan of the bentwood base.
With a very low profile, this glider looks like it should flank a sofa in your living room. I particularly like the detailed nailhead trim, which separates this design from the rest of the gliders. To make this your own, re-cover the loose pillow in a graphic pattern to complement the room.
This rocker by Modernica is a copy of the original Eames rocker design. Beware that this is not a good rocker if you want something comfortable to rock your baby in, but it looks and works great as an extra spot for seating in your nursery or playroom.
