Porch Rocking Chairs

A Rocking Chair is the Soul of the Front Porch

Porch rocking chairs conjure up nostalgic thoughts of times spent on the front porch with family and friends. Or, perhaps time spent reading a good book or just for watching the world go by.




Even if not used much, rocking chairs definitely add curb appeal to any home making it visually welcoming to all.

If only rocking chairs could talk!
So much a part of American culture, that porches and rocking chairs appear in many advertisements and movies. From famous Jimmy Stewart talking to his son-in-law about marriage in the movie Shenandoah to Clint Eastwood in Gran Torino, porch rocking chairs have become an iconic American symbol.

More Rocking Chair Ideas

Porch rocking chairs worth their weight must also be able to withstand the elements and the material from which they are made. You don't want your porch rockers to rot, corrode or fade due to exposure, nor do you want the joints to loosen or rust due to humidity.


Metal Rocking Chair Options

Metal rocking chairs can last a long time with minimal maintenance and care. Whether wrought iron or powdered coated materials, metal chairs car not only comfortable but also beautiful as well.

Polywood Rocking Chairs

Polywood, (recycled HDPE lumber), unlike real wood, requires no extra care - no painting, staining, or waterproofing. It is highly durable and will last a long time. It comes in a wide variety of colors and styles, all of which are perfect for your porch or deck.

The porch chairs at Debbie's home say "welcome" in a very warm way.
She pulled it all together with the red color in her front door, the beautiful star on the wall and the pillows on the rockers.

Debbie says, "I just love going to auctions to find old chairs and tables as well as vintage garden tools. And I love the color red in all my flowers and decor."

Something Ailing You?

Maybe a rocker is the answer. I can attest that rocking regularly in a good rocker is calming, soothing, and definitely relaxing.

Rocking chair therapy dates back to at least the early 1900's. Its widely accepted in the medical community that rocking can actually assist in the treatment of many conditions.

Rocking is known to soothe Alzheimer's patients and people afflicted with autism, ADD, arthritis, heart conditions and just plain anxiety. Babies, of course, are soothed by rockers. Many pregnant women enjoy the rhythm of a great rocking chair.
