I absolutely love love love this Anthropologie Bresson Rocker ($1,798). I think it looks both modern and classic, and its leather looks downright supple. I always have fun sitting in a rocking chair, too. But I'm sure some of you don't have the same taste for it. Are you with me or not?
Artist Christopher Chiappa's Chainsaw Rocker is a to-scale reproduction of a junkyard-find Honda Accord car seat that was chiseled to form by a chainsaw sculptor. Currently on view at Moss in Los Angeles, it's lowbrow artwork for the design elite. While its brass plated legs make it a delightfully functioning rocker, it's the chair's texture that really gets me. The wood was so expertly carved, with such realistic curves, that its toughness is almost disguised. It's funny: you wouldn't normally associate the harsh cuts of a chainsaw with the upholstery of a car seat.
Preparing for baby number two has got me nesting and reconfiguring nurseries and bedrooms. Not wanting to spend a huge amount on another glider, I started searching for a comfortable yet modern rocker for my toddler's bedroom. If I had the extra money, I might splurge on the sassy brown swank chair, as the padded arms look quite comfy. But my thrifty brain steers me otherwise.
Simple: At $149, Ikea's Lillberg rocker would suit a traditional, modern or artsy type child's room. Add some punch to the white cushions with sprightly decorative pillows.
Swank: If money is no object, the $900 Sleepytime Rocker is sure to send your tot into sweet dreams. The microsuede fabric makes it easy to clean and cozy to lounge on. If brown doesn't suit your fancy, you can have it custom made with the upholstery of your choosing.
Price aside, which one do you prefer?
December 14 marks the day that the first miniature golf course opened. And because we know that kids (and adults) like to play a round of putt–putt, we scavenged around and found this ultra–cool PGA Golf Tournament Rocker $95.
The green canopied "golf cart" has grass strewn along the rocking rails, a steering wheel to avoid those pesky sand traps, and a bucket in back for those clubs that Junior needs to stow away while he's rockin'.
This toy is sure to be an ace in the hole if your lil ones are into golf. I would bet that Tiger Woods has got one of these bad boys for Sam. If he doesn't, he certainly needs one!
This Rocker is a universal attachment to turn almost any four legged chair into a real rocking chair. According to the product description, "depending on the chair of your choice, you can get any kind of rocking chair; from a superlazy to a more active rocker." You won't find me with a granny chair, I'll take the "more active rocker" so I can rock out like the best of 'em. Unfortunately, it doesn't look as if the product is for sale yet. This would be a fun attachment for human legs, though; skateboarding is so last season.
