Rocking Chairs Round Up

Maybe because the last two weeks have been very rainy and grey, I've been daydreaming about rocking chairs and piles of books. I, unfortunately, don't live in a big enough  home to have a rocking chair, with the proper space it demands, but that doesn't stop me from wanting one. And I always love making a good wish list, so here are some favourites. 


The Elephant rocking chair, in white or leather.

The Eames RAR rocking chair. 
In white or the special edition in basalt grey.

Now that the list is done I have to admit: If I suddenly had the space, I wouldn't hesitate in immediately ordering the basalt grey one, by Ray and Charles Eames! 

What do you think? Do you have a favourite rocking chair?

  2. I am such a rocking chair fan. All of your picks are great. Oddly enough, I feel like my fave is the Mademoiselle because it feels the most old school. I can picture it on a wrap around porch.
