Here's one of those classic items that cycles in and out of favor, moving from old-fashioned to au courant on a regular basis. While the Eames-style shell rockers have been in vogue for the past decade, other shapes and styles are now gaining favor in fashionable rooms. Judging from how often they have been showing up in tours and across the web, it seems we've firmly entered another rocker-friendly period — no baby in the treetop required.
