Lovely Bentwood Rockers
My husband gave me my first bentwood rocker well over 25 years ago and I loved it! When it was damaged in a move, I was heartbroken, but I knew I had to have another bentwood rocker for my bedroom. While the oak version of the Carolina Cottage Victoria rocker first caught my eye, I fell in love with the antique black Victoria rocker shown here and that’s the one I chose.

Amazing White Rocking Chairs
My craft room is buttercup yellow with white trimwork. We redid the floor in peel and stick linoleum squares that are a white background with green diamonds. Well, then I decided I had to have a white wooden rocking chair in there. Was I ever delighted with the result! I couldn’t find one exactly like it to show you, but the three white wooden rocking chairs are very similar in style to it. I brought in this stunning white upholstered rocker just because I thought you’d like it!

Love my rocker and love all the choices you have here for rocking chairs.
These are very nice rocking chairs. Would be comfortable in any home
I do like rockers, but usually out doors. On the porch or deck. These are too beautiful and I can see so many other uses for them than outside. I love the one in your intro. It just looks rich.
There’s nothing like rocking your baby to sleep in a rocking chair.
