Buying Guide

Not all modern leather rocking chairs are ergonomic. However, knowing what to look for in the modern leather versions can help you choose one that is comfortable and ergonomic.

The most important feature to look for in a chair is the ability to adjust both the height and depth to support the inward curve of your lower back adequately.

A seat height adjustment feature allows you to adjust the seat to a position where your knees are slightly lower than your hips. A separate backrest height adjustment is also beneficial as no two people are the same, and different heights can provide better upper back and neck support. The backrest of an ergonomic chair also needs to be anywhere between 12”-19” wide.

For adjusting the depth, the chair needs to come with a seat slider. This feature’s ultimate ergonomic position is 1”-4” from the seat’s front edge to the back of your knees. This allows for better blood flow and support.

Additional ergonomic features to look for are chair arm and headrest adjustments.

Like other types of rocking chairs, a modern leather rocking chair needs at least 18” of space to rock safely without hitting the wall behind it. Many people prefer to leave at least 24” of space in case an energetic child climbs into the chair.

If someone will need to walk between your chair and the wall, leave at least 36” of space. This size will allow most adults to squeeze past even while the person in the chair is rocking.

Keep in mind that rocking chairs may move around slightly when used, especially if the chair is on a wooden floor and can slip while rocking. Check on the space behind the chair periodically to make sure it hasn’t moved too close to the wall.

To keep a modern leather rocking chair from sliding along hardwood floors, you need to place something underneath to create friction. A small round area rug is ideal for preventing sliding and making a stylish addition to your room.

You could also add non-slip polyester mesh or felt strips to the bottom of the rockers if you don’t want to cover your hardwood floors.

In some cases, the movement is caused by a defective rocker. You need to remove the rocker and replace it with a new one or check the joins between the rocker and the chair legs to see if they need a new adhesive.
