Others clap, dance, and shout to good music, but you prefer to rock out in a wood rocking chair. Rocking chairs, or rockers, once seated the likes of Benjamin Franklin, Albert Einstein, and past presidents George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. They arrived on the American domestic scene in the 1700s and continue to rest comfortably in homes today. Like Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osbourne, and Axel Rose, these rockers have a unique style. They have a backrest and seat like regular chairs, but replace four legs with two curved bands instead. Some chairs fold for easy storage, while others stay where you put them. You can find a wood rocking chair in several classic styles, including wicker and bentwood. Wicker rockers date back to the 1700s; historians credit Benjamin Franklin with their invention. These chairs rest on two curved bands and support occupants with hardy chair backs made of oak, mahogany, and other rich woods. Bentwood rocking chairs, which arrived in the late 1860s, feature a lighter weight, taller and thinner shape, and graceful shape influenced by Greek, Roman, and Renaissance architecture. Adults typically enjoy rocking chairs, but children's wood rocking chairs let kids in on the fun too. Look for these chairs on eBay. Have a seat as you shop, then select a convenient shipping method to have your item arrive when you want.
