Good Questions: Looking for a modern rocking chair

Good Questions: Looking for a modern rocking chair

Feb 26, 2007

Sara sent us an email: "Baby #3 is on the way and I'm in the market for a new rocking chair. With #1
and #2, we had a glider that was functional but not so pretty. We'd like to
find a comfortable yet modern looking rocker... do any exist? Please don't
suggest an Eames fiberglass shell rocker... I'd like some padding.
Thanks! Sara

There are some good options available, in a wide variety of price ranges. A few we'd recommend checking out include:

Carter Swivel Glider: Room and Board's offering, for $699
Poang: Chair at IKEA, for $199
Sleepytime Rocker: Nice lines, at Giggle for $900 (pictured above)
Eddy rocker: On the pricier end, from Ducduc at $1350
Goodnight glider: From Nurseryworks, at $1100
James rocker: Definitely not your standard glider/rocker, from $349 (depending on fabric choice) at EQ3

Do people have other ideas for Sara, or experience with any of the rockers listed above?
