I'm not sure if this is actually considered a rocking chair or not. The legs are stable, not curved like rocking chairs, but you can definitely rock in it. I talked the thrift store down to $25 for this sturdy, retro wooden chair. I just fell in love with it. I didn't even know it rocked until I sat down.
When I first saw it, it reminded me of those old water beds with the big wooden posts. I started sanding it, and I have taken off and washed the cushion covers. I googled how to clean foam cushions, and will be doing that this week.
Some might say the fabric is hideous, but I think it's retro and very homey. Like someones den. All ya need is the green shag carpet and the paneled walls!
One of the metal strips that supports the seat is broken. I have NO idea where to begin to look for something like this. But I know when I'm done, it's going to be SO comfortable! And it goes with the other stuff in my living room. Even my daughter loves it!
There are no brand names or anything on the chair anywhere. It's low to the ground, sturdy, oversized. Maybe from the 70s?
