Nursery Seating for Under $500

Rockers and gliders are one of those nursery furniture pieces that take a big chunk of the budget.  Especially if you share our modern aesthetic, finding a rocking chair or glider that you really love for a price that you can be happy about is really difficult.  I was shooting for a top 10 list here, but I only found 8 that fit the bill (pun intended!).

1- Calla Glider– sale price $498  There are a couple more color options.
2- Baby Mod Rocker– $300 Available in 3 colors.
This is just like the Nurseryworks Sleepytime Rocker but with different color choices and $200 less.
3- Dorel Nolan Swivel Glider– $400 Available in 3 leather color choices.
4- Enchanted Coronado Glider– $400 Available in 4 colors.
5- Home Loft Concept Tufted Rocking Chair– $425
6- Modernica Arm Shell– $435  Comes in 20 colors and with 4 base options.
The Eames Molded Plastic Rocker is just over the $500 budget here so I selected the Modernica Fiberglass version.  You can find lots of other knockoffs of this design for even less.  For discussion of knockoffs visit here and here.
7- Rockabye Co. Velvet Lara Glider Chair– $450 Available in 3 colors.
8- babyletto Madison Swivel Glider, Slate– $350

I was trying to be rather selective about style.  There are other modern style gliders out there but some of the proportions were just so far off I couldn’t bear to subject you to them.

I can’t make any guarantees about the comfort or durability of these seats.  With so many things, you get what you pay for.  On the other hand, we got our glider (no longer available) for under $500 and after 7 years we’re still happy with how it looks and functions!

I welcome your suggestions if you know of anything good that I’ve missed!

Such good picks- It is surprisingly hard to find a reasonably priced rocker.
