What To Insist On: - Find out exactly what to look for in a true 'Heirloom Quality' Rocking Chair or Glider-Rocker that will beautifully accommodate Your needs, and be easily maintained to last for generations

What To Avoid: - Find out how to look for, identify, and avoid common rocking chair and glider-rocker manufacturers cost-cutting steps that will simply not bear the burden of normal use in Your home

Avoid This - Things To Reject When Choosing Your Rocking Chair

A Comfortable Seat: A rocking chair should be built for hours of comfortable relaxation. Look for a comfortably contoured hardwood seat and reject any chair that looks pretty but will not be comfortable.  Avoid any rocking chair or glider-rocker that tends to dump you out of it on the forward movement.

Look Underneath The Seat: Is this furniture piece nicely finished underneath? If the bottom side is poorly finished, or otherwise ugly, this means that the manufacturer has “cut corners” to save money wherever possible.  This is a sure sign that other chair components and / or the finish are also likely to be sub-standard, and this particular piece represents a poor “investment” that will degrade and become problematic in use.

Avoid Weak Arms: Rocking Chair or Glider-Rocker Arms must be strongly supported. Look for 3 arm support posts on each side (rather 2). As with back posts & spindles, side arm posts should penetrate right through the seat for maximum strength.  Avoid any chair which does not comply with these guidelines because you can be sure that costs will also have been cut in other places too.

Try Our Motion Test For Symmetry: Properly selected hardwoods will not twist or deform Your rocking chair after manufacture.  The rocker runners should be sufficiently even that the rocker does not “walk” across the floor when in motion. Additionally, rocking chairs should never feel unstable in use – like they “want to” tip over.  Avoid any chair that feels unstable.  Our craftsmen particularly enjoy quality testing every chair by actually rocking in it before it can be accepted for delivery to You!

Avoid Finishes That Are Not Guaranteed To Be Water Resistant: A quality finish will protect the natural beauty of Your chair for future generations to enjoy. A finish that cannot withstand water and common household chemicals is also likely to wear off easily with use.

Insist On Solid Hardwood Throughout: Beware of the terms “all wood”, “solid all wood”, and “veneers” Avoid soft tropical woods and particleboard components that will split or crack when subjected to weight.

Avoid Poor Gliding Mechanisms: Beware of short gliding arms and inferior bearings on Glider-Rockers.  If the glider exhibits sideways play in the mechanism, You will need several replacements before Your baby is grown! Gliders should rock on their gliding mechanisms, not in their “solid” joints!
