Our advice Buying Guide

There are myriads of things that never age even with time and that includes antique rocking chairs. These antique furniture pieces are absolutely stunning, and they're best used in decorating homes.

In this article, we'll be talking about all the points you need to take into account when choosing antique rocking chairs so you only select the one that's best suited for your home. Read on to find out what they are!

Form and Function

Classic materials that make up antique rocking chairs include wicker, oak and other types of wood. They're best if you will be using your chair indoors. Otherwise, you'd want an antique rocking chair that's made of hard-wearing materials capable of withstanding harsh weather.

Antique rocking chairs, even when they're old, are great for stress relief and rest. If that is your aim, pick the chair that has a contoured seating. You must also accessorize it for maximum relaxation.

Materials

As mentioned earlier, antique rocking chairs are often made of wood like teak, oak, and wicker, but they can also be made of injection molded plastic, plastic resin, and fabric. When it boils down to choosing the right material, you'd want to take a few factors into account like the material's appearance (how the chair has aged), durability (how well the material can withstand weather fluctuations), comfort (how luxurious and comfortable the material is), maintenance (how easy it is to look after the material), price (the value you'll get from the chair), and weight (how easy or hard it is to move the furniture around).

Size

Once you have decided on a material, your next task is to select the right size of chair. Depending on the style, most antique rocking chairs stand around 26-30 inches wide, 37-45 inches tall and 32-37 inches deep. The chairs could also weigh around 15-45 lbs, depending on the type of material used for the construction.

If you will be purchasing several rocking chairs to incorporate into your living space, make sure that you leave a space of 2-3 feet between the chairs. There must also be enough space in front and behind the rocking chairs as they need to rock back and forth without hitting anything. Standard patios can comfortably hold up to four antique rocking chairs.

You'd also want to pay attention to a chair's height as shorter people would want a lower seat height to make getting in and out of a chair easier. Taller people, on the other hand, would want higher seats to be comfortable.

If you're around 5', the recommended seat height for you is 16 inches. For people that are 5’6” tall, they're comfortable with a seat height that's 16 to 17 inches.

Color

If you'll be buying a wooden antique rocking chair, your choices will be limited when it comes to the chair's color and finish unless it is painted. For HDPE lumber and injection molded plastic rocking chairs, you'll have lots of choices. Beautiful grays and earth colors are what we recommend as they can blend in a room's décor.
