Is it my imagination?
Or are rocking chairs from decades
past, appearing in all the chicest spots lately....

  3. All of these look fabulous in these spaces, but I still don't care for rocking chairs for some reason.

  4. I hope so, I have a rocking chair in the guest bedroom that needs a cushion upgrade!

  5. beautiful and I think we had one like #6 in our house when I was growing up!

    ReplyDelete
  6. Oh my! I have seen the rocking chair in pic #6 for a long time in antique malls, flea markets and estate sales and have just passed over them -- however that picture is making me look at them in a different way!!

    Kisses,sweetie and enjoy your day

  11. Yes, and I Love Love Love... My mother owns a few of these that I'm thinking of refinishing!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Seems like it, but I think the only ones I would do are the 2nd and last one.

  14. I love a good rocking chair! Finally, fashion and comfort have intersected!

    ReplyDelete
  15. You are so right! They are like the trendy version of the occasional chair!!!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Oh they certainly are! These are great too. I've been wanting a rocking chair for like ever but couldn't find a style I liked and that would fit in my space until now. Thanks!

  17. Love the aesthetic, though somehow I don't find them comfy. The cane back chair (with the Arco lamp) is gorgeous and the one in the last pic is my favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  18. The black one with woven back...that's the kind we have. We were going to use it in the nursery but it needs some TLC and I would hate for it to break. So reptty. I am also a fan of the Eames rocker. xo

    ReplyDelete
  19. such a fun rocking chair! mod and traditional is such a great combo. :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Very true observation! I have been wanting an Eames rocker for so long and I really don't think it will ever go out of style.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Awww makes me miss my rocker. I let my SIL borrow it, they broke it before I had even left that weekend.

    I really like how they incorporated these rockers with amazingly chic furniture and decor!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Rocking Chairs have been my childhood obsession but we never had the right corner or enough space or one. Really like the wooden chair!!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I love the one where the poster on the mantel has a rocking chair to match!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I've always loved rocking chairs - there's just something so homey about them! My grandmother used to have the best orange wooden one but it's long gone now...

    ReplyDelete
  25. my mom has that exact bentwood rocker. she has relegated it to the basement storage room. i think she either needs to give it to me(!) or bring it out of hiding!! xo

    ReplyDelete
  26. It is certainly not your imagination! I have been seeing a lot of these rocking around in many good inspirational homes. It just reminded me, maybe i need one to rock it too.

    ReplyDelete
  27. There really is something soothing about a rocking chair - maybe it brings us back to our childhood, or maybe just the soothing rocking squeak is has a calming effect.

    I am still impressed with the simplicity of SJP's chair in her Hampton's home. Great post.

    ReplyDelete
  28. The wooden rocker in the second photo is simply amazing! I now have it as my mission to try and hunt it down.

    ReplyDelete
  29. TWO of my friends purchased really cool modern rocking chairs lately!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. These are all beautiful! I love number two because it looks like a piece of art/sculpture by itself. It may need a cushion for comfortable rocking though:-).

    ReplyDelete
  31. Very fun! Something do soothing about the motion of back...and forth...back....and forth. xo E

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love it. I've got a rocking chair in storage that was passed down to me, maybe it's time for it to re-appear!

    ReplyDelete
  33. When I was little I remember we had a such a chair! But I really don't know what is happened with it!!
    Love these chairs and indeed you discover them on every magazine now!!

  34. the wooden classic one is one of my faves together with the fab Eames!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Ha! I hope so. We have one that was my great grandmothers.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Such a soothing piece of furniture...

    ReplyDelete
  37. We had one with a cane back and seat growing up and I now wonder what became of it. Everything seems to come back eventually, doesn't it?

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oh totally! I couldn't live without mine (which btw looks exactly like the one in the third pic from below) ...Perhaps I'll paint it black, that looks awfully chic! Xx

    ReplyDelete
  39. oooh yea. i am loving this round up doll face.....rocking chairs are rocking my world lately. xo

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  41. Love a rocking chair -- vintage or not! Dying for a pair for my upstairs' porch.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Rocking chairs are great aren't they! I bought one for my friend when she had a baby but after it sat in my lounge for a month I didn't want to give it away haha. I love the mirror in the fourth pic down by the way!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I wish my mom had hung on to the one we had growing up... xx

    ReplyDelete
  44. I have one in my own "naughty corner" where I sit with my LARGE gin and contemplate. A must and cheaper than a shrink. xo

    ReplyDelete
  45. Love the simple aesthetic of them!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Susan - be sure to stop by when you have time - I have an award I'd like to give you. Very much deserved. =)

    ReplyDelete
  47. the 2nd and last one are rocking my world. pun fully intended.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I loooooooove the white one. So cool. It would be perfect in our teeny tiny nursery!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Rock on! Every house needs a rocker. I like mine on the porch, mixed with a long view into the distance. I love gliders, swings, hammocks, and hanging wicker chairs from the 70's. I occasionally like one with a guitar.

    ReplyDelete
  50. These babes can rock on for ever in my book!
    I have hung onto an old heirloom rocking chair that my grandmother had in her home as a young girl. It needs a little TLC but will look fab when restored.
    I love rocking chairs!

  51. I LOVE rocking chairs! I think that they can look old-fashioned and chic at the same time, which I love.

  52. Very cool... Where were these when I was doing my nursery? Just kidding, I have a really cool wicker one from Ikea.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I totally agree! And I am really glad I stumbled along your blog. I found a beautiful rocking chair in my Mom's attic and was wondering if I should dust it off! Now I think I just might.

  54. surely the eames chair will outlive us all!

    ReplyDelete
  55. So pretty! What a lovely round up. This makes me think, isn't it nice to know that new moms who are looking for a rocking chair for a babies room can have some fab rather than the regular drab??

  56. I have noticed several rocking chairs when I have been out looking for furniture for the house. I have an old wicker one I bought at auction, and i drag it out side for the summer and then back into the dry for winter.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Am completely loving the black one from the sköna hem spread. SO chic!!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I have a rocker similar to the one in #6 from my grandma - it's a little worse for wear and I was thinking I need to paint it. I just need to figure out what room it wants to live in. I love rockers!!!
