Porch Rocking Chairs

A Rocking Chair is the Soul of the Front Porch

I love porch rocking chairs. In fact, I love all rocking chairs. I can wear one out - literally.


Mary will tell you it's true. I can't count how many we've had over the years. You can't have too many rocking chairs.

Love the sweet dog next to this crisp white rocker.
This rocker is from Hayneedle and you can find similar rockers at Fifthroom.



What Makes an Ideal Porch Rocker?

  • It should be comfortable, of course!
  • 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. That would be sad.

It puts us in the mind of "home sweet home". Does it for you as well?

This is so typical of a summer day - rocking on the front porch with a fan nearby. Love!

porch rocking chair at Debbie's home with a red and yellow sunflower pillow

The porch rocking 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.
