The rocking chair is back!
A piece of furniture with a pleasantly old-fashioned charm, the rocking chair is making a comeback in our homes! In our imagination we often associate the rocking chair with country houses. It is a piece of furniture most often made of bent wood. The rocking chair’s unique base gives it a retro feel. This piece is ideal to decorate a veranda or a spacious living room. Very comfortable, it is also an ideal piece of furniture for a reading corner! Let yourself be lulled by these few inspirations..
Don’t hesitate to combine materials and shapes. Here a designer rocking chair with fluid lines installed on a cowhide rug and arranged near a rattan sun mirror!

An iconic chair design
Several famous designers in the history of design have revisited this thousand-year-old piece of furniture! The most famous of them are probably Charles and Ray Eames and their rocking chair which comes in many colours! Another famous model in the history of design is the rocking chair “Relaxer” by Verner Panton or the rocking chair “Fredericia” by Hans Wegner. Whether the lines of the chair are straight or curved, they are always strikingly original!
