I have many fond memories of sitting out on the porch in rocking chairs with my Mom, drinking coffee, and enjoying long summer mornings. Memories that I look back upon and can’t help but smile. Those were the moments that we slowed down and just enjoyed life. When I think of rocking chairs, I think of those types of moments. Rocking chairs are not where you briefly sit down to tie your shoes or scarf down your breakfast, they are for sitting in when you want to relax and slow down. Whether on a porch, in a living room, or in a nursery—rocking chairs are the perfect addition to a space needing comfort and relaxation. And there are plenty of options to choose from! Take a look at some of my favorites and try to remember to enjoy those special moments throughout the day.

I love the fact that this rocking chair looks super comfortable yet sleek. The oversized back creates a welcoming spot while the deep black gives off a more modern vibe than the typical country rocker. (Via Terry Kelly Furniture)

My favorite part about this rocking chair is the lattice back! So gorgeous! And I love that you can add cushions to this chair. Makes me want to grab a lemonade and rock away for hours!

Snuggle up close on this rocking chair made for two. This rustic chair from Simply Cedar is super charming and the perfect addition to any porch or patio!

I love this green rocking chair from Archie’s Island! If you are looking for an easy way to add color to a room or porch-this is a great option—a timeless shape with a burst of color.

This rocking chair from Metro Sofa looks so so comfortable! Whether curled up with a good book or rocking your little one to sleep, this is sure to be a favorite resting spot!

There is something so simple and homey about this rocker from Dzierlenga Furniture. A very non-intrusive piece, this chair will add charm without distracting from the look of the room.
