It all started in Central Park on June 22, 1901, when a group of people spotted rows of bright green rocking chairs along the park's mall, near the casino. Usually in this same spot, stood rows of uncomfortable wooden hard benches, so it was a pleasure indeed for the park-goes to sit and rock and enjoy the wondrous summer day.
It seemed that a few days earlier, Clausen had been visited in his official Park Commission office by a man named Oscar F. Spate. Spate seemed amiable enough, and he offered Clausen a proposition Clausen saw no difficulty in accepting. It seemed that Spate said he wanted to place comfortable rocking chairs in the parks throughout New York City. And for the privilege of doing so, Spate offered the city the tidy sum of $500 a year.
Rockers are usually made of hardwood, and this makes them really durable and strong. Aside from making the rocking chairs stronger and long-lasting, hardwoods provide aesthetic value to rockers because of their beautiful colors and grain. Hardwoods' properties add flair and beauty to rocking chairs, and this adds to their design value. Adding a hardwood rocking chair carved beautifully and made with intricate designs will surely add spice to an otherwise bland room.
