What to expect from a retro Eames rocking chair

Mid-century furniture design is all about clean lines, rounded edges and sleek finishes. It’s about finding the majesty in simplicity, and that’s exactly what Eames has done for decades. Throughout the 20th century, Charles and Ray Eames worked together with a philosophy of looking at the world in new and exciting ways. They used their talents to create iconic furniture items which have stood the test of time and really made their mark – both in the industry and in people’s homes. Their pieces include the sleek Eames Lounge Chair from 1956, which has seen worldwide recognition for its innovative design.

All Eames furniture is celebrated for its exciting use of form and material, and their designs include everything from chairs and stools to tables and storage. Eames rocking chairs are instantly recognisable, thanks to their use of original materials like fibreglass and woods such as birch and walnut. They stay true to quintessential Eames mid-century design, maintaining an elegant finish while still providing the means for maximum comfort and relaxation.

Modern design rocking chairs

More modern rocking chairs often follow this same design blueprint created by Eames, but opt for the use of cheaper materials like polypropylene. As consequence, modern high street equivalents of the Eames rocking chair are not a patch on the original, as they tend to be less durable and sturdy.
