Last autumn, the DWR Design Studio announced their first collaboration with legendary designer Jens Risom. Furthering that partnership, Jens is following his bench, chair and ottoman with a new upholstered rocker with a distinct Danish modern look true to his roots (and the DWR customer).
The new rocker has a walnut frame and is beautifully balanced and comfortable — I had a chance to try one recently and was surprised at how sturdy it is. Though the footprint is rather large at a little under 3' x 3', this is normal for any quality rocker.
The Risom Rocker is stocked in Tiger Lily and Lychee Maharam Milestone upholstery — but can be customized with DWR's new custom upholstery program. The Risom Rocker is $1,600 - $1,680 and exclusive to DWR.
If you're looking for a modern rocker at a lower price point, be sure to check out IKEA's new POANG rocker. Though it is still not online, I tried one last weekend at the Brooklyn IKEA and was really impressed with the comfort level and aesthetics! The POANG rocker is $179 at IKEA.
