Rocking Chairs for the Nursery


Originally I wanted a rocker-recliner in the nursery.  But the more I thought about it the more I realized that I hate the look of even the rocker-recliner I originally picked out.  Does it really need to recline anyway?  Can't my little ottoman poufs do the foot supporting work of a recliner?

And then I saw all these adorable rockers and realized it's time to go back to the drawing board with this item in the nursery.  Here's what I found:

1. Rockabye Bella Velvet Grand Glider. Glamorous and traditional, the tufted back with the velvet upholstery would make this an interesting twist to my cheery semi-modern nursery design. Texture goes a long way in teaching babies about the world right? $580.

2. Nurserywork Sleepytime Rocker.  Truth be told, this is the rocking chair that changed my mind.  Transitional in style, it would move seamlessly from the nursery to the living room or my craft room if I were in the mood to turn a night with my Cricut into a rocking good time after the Little Bean is grown. $499.

3. Nurseryworks Empire Rocking Chair. This chair combines the pretty rocking chair bottom of the Sleepytime Rocker with the glam of the Rockabye Bella Glider.  It's a rocking chair fit for a queen, if the queen were modern and slightly edgy. $800.

4. Eames Molded Plastic Armchair Rocker This is the rocking chair darling of design lovers, mid century modernists and minimalists across the board.  Easy to clean, beautiful lines and the timeless look of an Eames classic. $548.

5. Dorel Rocking Chair with Slipcover.  Its clean lines, roomy structure and variety of colors make this so practical.  Plus slipcover allows for easy clean-up while the price is extremely low for an upholstered rocking chair. $199.

Decisions, decisions.
