Although I have stated my desire to keep it cheap with the baby there is one thing I have to have and that is a rocking chair. I’m willing to spend a bit on one that we like because you don’t save money by buying furniture you hate and want to get rid of. We found a couple we like.
I tried this out at Dwell on Design a couple of years ago and it is really comfortable and beautiful. It’s the kind of furniture you pass down through the generations but I don’t know if that means I’ll shell out quite that much money.
Jason found this one. After drooling over the $2k rocker this price seems more reasonable. Plus it is available in a few different colors. Also the mid-modern design goes well with our other furniture.
I like that this has some padding. I will be rocking a baby in this after all. There are other color options available as well if Jason thinks this is too cutesy.
At the end of the day we probably won’t go as high as the Thos Moser but the Eames reproduction or the Ikea seem like good options for us. Has anyone seen any other cool rockers out there? I’m pretty adamant about having something with arms, I think that will be essential when holding a squirming baby.
