Before patios decks and patio furniture became popular, the main outdoor furniture was the old front porch rocker or a piece of discarded indoor furniture.
The Original Rocking Chair
The Porch Rocker was a spin-off of the original
Adirondack Chair that was first built in the early 1900's. Many of the
same features can be found in the rocker such as a high back,
inclined seat and oversized arm rests. This chair gives you all the
perks as the original with the added bonus of rocking.
North American Design
Great for your
garden, pool area or front porch, the Adirondack rocking chair is a
symbol of classic North American outdoor furniture. If you are looking to
furnish the outside of your home and yard, you may want to consider what the
Adirondack style and comfort has to offer. In addition to rockers you can choose from
chairs, chaise lounges, loveseats and porch swings.
Wooden Cedar Rockers
The rocking chair comes in a variety of woods. Commonly purchased
in Cedar, this chair often comes partially assembled so you can
begin to enjoy its comfort immediately. Western Red Cedar is a perfect choice
for an outdoor rocker since it is well known for its resistance to insect attack, rot and bacteria. This ensures your rocking chair
will age gracefully with the rest of your outdoor furniture.
