Jens Risom Rocker from Design Within Reach

Jens Risom Rocker from Design Within Reach

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.
