New Addition: Eames Molded Plastic Armchair with Rocker Base

This isn’t news to anyone, but an Eames Rocker is a beautiful choice for a modern nursery.  I’ve been delinquent in adding it to my list of rocking chairs but I took care of it today.  Unlike the fiberglass originals, today’s Eames molded chairs are made of 100% recyclable polypropylene (not that I’m sure why you’d ever be throwing it into a recycling bin).  For $480, this is the most inexpensive rocker on the list, although that does tell me I need to do some work and find more budget friendly rocking chair options!

These come in a variety of neutral and bright colors.

If plastic doesn’t quite do it for you and you want to purchase a new fiberglass shell chair, they are currently being manufactured by Modernica so you can take a look at those as well.  Those cost about $375 when purchased new.

There are plenty of places to score knock-off chairs like these for as little as $125 if you’re just going for the look.

If you’re comfortable with the feel of the chair, you know you can’t go wrong with the design.

But you don’t have to take MY word for it!  To see examples of a these rockers used in different nurseries, take a look at my flickr gallery.
