A rocker chair is a very old invention to relax in – it’s ideal to place next to a fireplace to look at the fire, or just take it out to your garden, rock and enjoy the wind and sunlight. I’ve prepared a whole bunch of super modern and comfortable rockers to choose from – for one or more people, of different materials and colors, choose yours to relax better this summer!
This classic Cornelia rocker designed by Giorgio Cattelan is fantastic from the sitting room to the sun porch because it’s made from steel and can go anywhere. It’s lightweight enough that you can move it back and forth. This rocker has simplistic and clean lines and would really suit any decor from the Victorian cottage look to the sleek metallic loft downtown. Versatile and durable, charming, yet contemporary – an amazing choice for outdoors and indoors!
This is Rocker No.1 chair by Reed Hansuld. The joinery seems too impossibly thin to support weight. But look closely at these photos and you’ll see the elegantly-integrated steel skeleton that makes the whole thing work. It’s not just that the form is gorgeous, with not a line or surface out of place. It’s not just his impeccable grain selection, exposed fasteners or details like the exposed floating tenon joinery. It’s just so gorgeously airy.
This garden rocker lounge for two is by Sveglio of Italy and it’s called Volo – Italian for “I Fly”. Each piece is made to order and you can choose from white, silver, antique bronze and black for the geometric frame, and then from Sailcloth Shadow, Canvas Iris, Spectrum Denim, Spectrum Peacock, Heritage Granite or Canvas Tuscan for your color. In addition, custom color frames and fabric are available. The lounger is super comfy and relaxing due to its hammock principle, and it’s is built for two, which is non-typical for a lounger; invite your sweetie and have a great time lying and talking together.
Inspired by Arabic Diwani calligraphic script, Ahmed ElHusseiny of AE Superlab, designed a sculptural rocker with a flowing form. The DIWANI CHAIR’s linear “ribs” fit together to form an overall minimal design that was carefully crafted through precise engineering. The curvy, sensuous silhouette is exaggerated by the dramatic lowness and depth of the seat, while the contoured shape gives the feeling that you’d want to lean back and lounge.
Alex Petunin’s DP Chair almost looks like it’s got a candy-coated center. The design is modern, versatile and vibrant, the chair can be used in two distinct ways – as a lounge for leaning back or as a rocker, this is a functional eye-candy suitable for many modern spaces from a living room to a kids’ room. It’s colorful stoppers keep it in place and prevent users from rocking too far.
A functional mix between a bed and a rocking chair, the Odu Rocker envisioned by Flo Florian and Sascha Akkermann from Confused-Direction is eye-catching and original. An interesting feature is that by adjusting his or her position, the user can automatically shift the gravitational center of the rocker, transforming it from an armchair into a daybed and vice versa.
Varaschin Outdoor Therapy connects tradition and modernity with the Summerset Rocking armchair. Created by French designer Christophe Pillet, the piece embraces the renowned steel net-structure that defines the bodies of their chairs. The new design looks to add further contemporary elements, visualizing a modern reinterpretation of an historic and sophisticated design. Created for outdoor use, the Summerset Rocking Armchair has a powder coated steel grid and legs, which have a protective treatment suitable for marine and pool areas, can be customized in an array of colors that compliment the trendy iroko wood base.
