Not Your Grandma’s Rocking Chair. Funky Rockers!

by Katie on May 17, 2011

Lately my husband and I have been musing with the idea about having a child! The way I look at it is what’s meant to happen will happen! So, we shall see what the cards hold for us in this coming year (maybe two!!)  Funny thing is when I think of babies, the first thing I think about is the amazing life changing experience that a baby would bring! And, the second thing is how fun it would be to decorate a nursery!! All this thought about babies has got me randomly thinking about… Rocking Chairs! There are not too many items in the word that I love more than chairs. Yes, chairs! Ever since I can remember I have had an affinity for all kinds of interesting and unique chairs. These rockers are a sleek take what on what is typically a very traditional piece. Here are few interesting, classic, and inspiring modern beauties.
