What is the best kind of rocking chair?


Answer by  BrendaG (6111)

The first rockers made were wooden and are by far the most popular today. Wooden rocking chairs are made from either softwood or hardwood. Softwoods come from evergreen trees and are priced cheaper when purchasing. Hardwoods include cherry, oak, elm, mahogany, maple, and walnut. All retain their beauty.

Really this is up to you and your opinion and what you would like the chair for. Some things to consider: What size would you like? Padded or plain wooden?


Answer by  Someone83 (166)

I personally think that the gliders are the best. The reason I prefer those is because they just seem much more comfortable, so long as they are have padding. After all a wood seat is not as comfortable. Not only that you won't accidentally rock over your pet's tail.

It depends on what you are looking for in a rocking chair. If you are looking for a chair to put in a baby's room to rock it to sleep, a glider would probably be best because they make little to no noise as they rock. A glider is also designed for the comfort of the adult doing the rocking.


Answer by  Purple (948)

There are many styles like the old fashioned kind that is wood and just rocks. There is the glider style which some prefer but I've only seen cheap one's in stores. There is rocker-recliners which can vary in price and quality which most all furniture stores carry.

When chosing a rocking chair, it is best to pinpoint what it will be used for. Will you be using relaxing after long day at work, rocking a new baby to sleep, or simply a decorative furniture piece? Imagine yourself in this position when testing rocking chairs......go for comfort!

The best kind of rocking chair is a glider. They rock, but because the rocking mechanism is spring based and not dependent on a curved piece of wood, you are far less likely to fall over.

rocking chairs come in many diffrent styles but I am going to assume you are talking about the all wood style If I had to choose I would buy amish but the most important facts are that it was made from one solid piece of wood and not fitted together

The most comfortable rocker is one that comes with a rocking foot rest. Amish make fantastic ones. It needs a cushion for both parts. The hard ones are just that, hard!

The best kind of rocking chair is based on your preferences. But I think that Troutman rocking chairs are the best and they last long.


Answer by  digital1007 (113)

The best kind of rocking chair would have to be one that would stand the test of time. Such as weather durability.
