Rocking your child to sleep is a time-honored tradition. A rocking chair is the perfect place for reading or feeding your child. But don’t think you are stuck with an old-fashioned looking chair. In fact today’s rocking chairs look nothing like your grandmother’s chair. Most of the chairs on the market today are gliders and a lot of them look more like club chairs than rocking chairs. Plus they are also made with easy to clean fabrics such as micro-suede. Choose a classic color combination like espresso and tan for a traditional look or pick slate for that urban contemporary feeling.
