For an inexpensive padding option, fabrics like, cotton and foam based rocking chairs are viable options but its tough to get them clean since herein a padding is usually covered with fabric itself, therefore its maintenance is an object of constant concern for the consumers. These days we get to see more of plastic rockers chairs and traditional wooden rocking chairs being used by kids and adults but this is without padding and it's a convenient, inexpensive and maintenance-free option when compared to padded rocking chair. But with all these materials, there is one problem: they don't give their consumer that added comfort to relieve back and spine pain on the whole.
Basically the rocking chair has two curved bands of wood or rockers fixed to the bottom of the chair. It contacts the chair with the floor only on two points that allows the occupant of the seat to rock back and forth with the minimum of effort. It is a comfortable chair to sit on even without the push factor – it automatically adjusts with the centre of gravity of the sitter for ergonomic advantage. It relieves stress. Built up on this basic structure are many types of rocking chairs having springs and gliders. Greek and Roman chairs influenced the neo-classical designs. One of the latest Norwegian models can take on four positions.
First and foremost, you will need to know how tall your child is. If you are buying this as a gift, you can make a simple phone call to get that information. The child's height is important because you want them to be able to get in and out of the chair without assistance. Having their own chair builds their identity and independence, and being able to get in and out of it by themselves only fosters this. Generally speaking, mini rocking chairs are geared for 1 to 3 year olds and the seat height is around 10 inches. The next step up is a child size chair for 3 to 8 year olds, which usually has a height around 10.5-12.5 inches. If your child is on the taller side for his age, you might want to purchase the child size chair so they won't grow out of it too quickly.
As rocking chairs continue to emerge in various designs, furniture makers also make sure that they become even more comfortable by improving their ergonomic design and features. Because rocking chairs are primarily made out of hard wood, many people would place pillows against the back area and on the seat to make them more comfortable. This gave furniture makers the idea of making upholstered or padded seats and back supports for the rocking chair. To improve ergonomic quality, modern rocking chairs also have a curved back support that follows the natural curve of a person's back.
Nothing beats relaxing in a wicker rocking chair in a cold rainy night or balmy summer day. Depending on the material used, wicker rocking chairs can be used indoors or out. You can relax under the sunshine or be snug in the warmth in your fireplace. Rocking chairs are not only used in nursing homes to while away the time of elderly people. These are also very common in homes. For individuals who live stressful lives, a wicker chair that rocks is a haven. It is a place to relax after a day's work. It's a place where you can just sit down and doze off in the rocking motion of the chair.
Do you remember that special day when you received your very own childs rocking chair or rocking horse as a young kid? For me it was the classic rocking horse on my 3rd birthday. Oh what a wonderful birthday! I was suddenly the mighty cowboy riding on my trusted horse (through the dry and hot desert) fighting Indians as I went. It is amazing how ingrained in my memory is this little horse on a frame with four springs. Then as I grew a little older, I remember getting a real childrens chair that had my name on it and was painted camouflage to match my GI Joe decorated room. Kids rocking chairs are a very memorable piece of furniture because they are a great toy, they can fit in with the bedroom décor, and can bring hours of quality time with a loved one.
For anyone who is a parent or just likes to pass time on the porch, a rocking chair is a must. The swaying back and forth can be so soothing that it will literally put a person to sleep. That's why many expecting mommies will purchase a rocking chair. During last night feedings or disturbances, rocking the child will calm them and they will eventually fall right to sleep. Within minutes, most children will calm down thanks to the motion of a rocking chair. It is definitely a nursery must.
