We all love to rock, or be rocked. It’s inherent in our psyche – from babies being rocked to sleep by doting parents, to finding comfort in being soothed by a partner, so what better addition to your home than a rocking chair. Although a stereotype, the old-timer rocking on his porch watching the world go by was onto a good thing.
With a range of styles available – from outdoor camping rocker, to the more traditional model, all of our outdoor rocking chairs have to meet our high standards before featuring on our page. These standards include:
- Durability – these chairs have to prove they can rock around the clock for many years.
- Value for money – rest assured that you’re getting great value for your money.
- Style – only the most stylish outdoor rocking chairs survive this test.
- Quality of the rock – the rocking action must be smooth and as long as possible. The longer the rock, the more relaxing the chair.
- Comfort – every chair has to provide maximum comfort.
John F Kennedy even designed his own rocking chair when he developed back pain, swearing by the rocking motion providing pain relief.
