rocking chair no.1
The Inspiration rocking chair is what I believe to be the most beautiful rocking chair and the most comfortable rocking chair in the world! I achieve this not by reinventing the wheel but by using a design that has been refined for the past 20 years by Hal Taylor, a chair maker and teacher from Hartwood, Virginia.
This chair has flexible back braces that not only conform to your back, they can rotate slightly if you reach for a glass or cross your legs, in effect the chair becomes part of you. The chair comes in 8 different sizes as well as any type of wood you would like, although I do prefer a friendly and warm wood from the Canadian Black Walnut tree.
