Rocking Chairs and Gliders
A staple in nurseries everywhere, rocking chairs and gliders have help put babies, and grownups too, to sleep for many generations. Whether looking to fill the empty corner of your family room, or furnish the reading nook in your children’s playroom, a rocking chair is the perfect accent chair that provides comfort for both you and your baby.
Rocking chairs and gliders are designed for comfort, but sacrificing style is not necessary. Gliders have become extremely popular for nursery decor, and have also been touted as the safer alternative to rocking chairs. A small child’s fingers and toes can easily get pinched in the base of a traditional rocker than in a glider. The swing seat is also a smoother ride than the rocking motion of the chair.
Out of all the furniture pieces that will fill the nursery, a rocking chair has the potential for life long use. Consider investing in a quality chair that can grow with your child, and with your other children. Your kids will be able to read themselves to sleep in the rocking chair — hopefully not too soon.
