For many years, rocking chairs have remained one of the most iconic pieces of American furniture. These chairs allow you to sway back and forth by pushing and pulling your feet. This soothing motion can be so relaxing. Despite this, rocking chairs are an integral part of interior design. They come in a wide variety of excellent styles. Whether you are looking for something modern or a vintage style rocking chair with some brilliant craftsmanship, there is always a product in the market for you. Besides, wooden rocking chairs can be the perfect centerpiece for your nursery or even the living room.
Outdoor Rocking Chair
What we like: Eucalyptus is naturally weather resistant
What we don’t like: No cushioning may be uncomfortable
Not so great for: Indoor spaces
Perfect for: A covered patio
An excellent option if you want to add a little something extra to your patio, this rocking chair mixes modernity with a touch of tradition. Made from solid Brazilian eucalyptus wood, it will last throughout the years. Eucalyptus wood is naturally weather and UV-resistant, though it is recommended to treat your chair with teak oil regularly. This will help it to keep looking its best.
It features a neutral hue that will match most patio styles, from red brick to whitewashed walls. Plus, the woven seat means that when the rain does come, water will drip through instead of pooling. This will prevent damp in the long run.
Square Rocking Chair
What we like: Supportive arms
What we don’t like: Shorter back will offer less support
Not so great for: Taller people
Perfect for: A nursery
A stunning addition to any nursery, both you and your precious little one are guaranteed to love this spacious rocking chair. Whether you’re sinking into it at three in the morning or in the evening, it will contour to your body over time. It sits on elegantly curved ash hardwood legs that add a mid-century modern look.
You can choose from eight color and finish options, ranging from ivory boucle polyester to blush velvet. Constructed and upholstered by hand, the high quality of your purchase will stop any worries in their tracks. Moreover, the included lumbar cushion will offer extra support, although it can be removed if you prefer. No tools are required for setup.
Quilted Rocking Chair
What we like: Button-tufted detail
What we don’t like: Firm foam won’t be as comfortable
Not so great for: Ultra-modern rooms
Perfect for: Traditionally decorated spaces
Featuring a streamlined frame made from solid birch wood, we love the traditional look of this rocking chair. You can rest comfortably against the square arms whether you’re nursing a baby or not. Additionally, we love that you can remove the seat via a hook and loop fastener to make this chair work best for you.
Chic and sophisticated, it will bring a touch of elegance into any room due to the button-tufted detail. The warm walnut finish of the legs contrasts with smooth cream upholstery for a cozy look. Because of this, we think this chair would look great in a living room with mid-to-dark wood furniture.

All hardware is included for quick and simple assembly.
Retro Rocking Chair
What we like: Retro design
What we don’t like: Doesn’t rock as much
Not so great for: If you want a chair to curl up in
Perfect for: Adding vintage flair to a room
Retro without being too stuck in the past, this rocking chair is a great way to update your living space. It mixes vintage appeal from button tufting with a wingback design for more of a contemporary feel.
