Short history of the rocking chair:
The Eames Rocking Chair has been loved by adults and children ever since it was designed in 1948. Made of molded plastic it mimics the shape of a human body and is a super comfortable chair. The Rocking Chair fits a variety of styles. It works as classical, modern or retro addition to your interiors. The Chair even lends itself as a chair for your working space or an extraordinarily comfortable addition to your living room.
Even though the Eames Rocking Chair still looks fresh, young and modern this beautiful piece of innovative furniture is more than half a decade old. The Rocking Chair celebrated its comeback in the 1990s after it vanished from the spotlight in the decades before. Ever since then it has become one of the most famous pieces of designer furniture and can be found in many homes across the globe.
Even though it was initially designed as a nursery chair it very soon became a popular living room chair. It was received very well and pretty soon became part of mainstream indoor furniture. The Rocker was a contribution to the “Low Cost Furniture Design” competition of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Its lightweight frame, minimalistic design and originally low price made the Eames Rocking Chair an instant success just like many other Eames creations. They were the first chairs ever to be mass produced.
