Many solid, old-fashioned rocking chairs are constructed to last for generations. Yet since often these chairs are notoriously clunky and inelegantly designed, even the greenest amongst us might not really want them to. Jolyon Yates' Series 3 ODEChair— which comes in two alternatives, the Savannah Rocker III and Ocean Rocker III— re-imagines the classic rocking chair in a way that satisfies our eco-conscious and design-savvy inclinations. Designed in Northumberland, Yates' rocking chairs posess sleek and mesmerizing forms, which are as visually calming to the eye as to our bodies. Yates creates such pieces while keeping earth-friendly principles in the forefront, using renewable birch from Scandinavia and low-impact glues and finishes. It's the new, old-fashioned rocking chair; and you'll be happy to have it last forever.
