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.
Rockers are made of several parts or components that contribute to its overall design and functionality. The curved pieces of wood are called rockers, and this serves as the main base of your rocking chair. Although rockers is also the term that is used to refer to a rocking chair, the term rocker for craftsmen refer to the curved wood fixed at the base of the legs of the rocking chair. These rockers must be made with utmost precision and care so that a soft, balanced rocking motion is achieved by the chair whenever it is set in motion. Many people, however, meet accidents with rockers as feet and toes can get easily crushed underneath them whenever the chair is in motion. Because of this, more modern rockers have springs that alleviate this concern. The backrests of the rocking chair function like the backrests of traditional chairs. The backrests of rocking chairs however, are designed to provide more comfortable back support. They have a slight bend or angle to more effectively catch a reclining posture. This is also to retain comfort even while the occupant is rocking back and forth with the rocking chair. The legs of a rocking chair functions like the legs of a regular chair, only that they are quite thicker and shorter because the legs are mounted to the rocker. Armrests are not always there, because some rocking chairs do not have armrests. Rocking chairs with armrests provide higher levels of comfort, though.
Want an inexpensive yet elegant touch to your table decor? Chair sashes add a lovely accent to a dinner table and don't cost too much to rent. You can tie the sash horizontally with a bow or knot, or as I did, tie the sash vertically to change up the look on the chair. Another wedding chair decor idea is to make Just Married signs and place them on the back of the bride and groom chairs. For our wedding, we took two photos, superimposed Just Married on them and then enlarged and mounted the photos on foam core and placed the signs over the chair sashes.
