When you are shopping around for a rocking chair, you will be struck with the different looks and designs that have come into the market in this category. There are recliners that claim to be the modern day rocking chairs, different in form but offering similar functions.
Among the modern designs you can check out the broad based rocking chairs that are lower, wider and more comfortable to sit on, courtesy the leathered or buttoned upholstery which offers a comfortable seating to anyone. Leathered upholstery makes these chairs, modern additions to any living room and can be considered luxurious accent pieces as well.
In case you like the concept of a fully furnished and upholstered chair that rocks to and fro, opt for a recliner. Many people also consider recliners with foot and back reclining options as well as massage options to be perfect replacements of the traditional rocking chair. These are more expensive than a rocking chair, but could accommodate more people and offer more comfortable seating than a rocking chair can provide.
Here are some modern rocking chair designs for you to consider.
