"Every nursery needs a rocking chair." That's what I was told. Initially, I was looking to buy a type of non-rocking armchair simply because I'm not a fan of the look of the traditional nursery rockers and I'm not willing to spend money on a chair I don't like. So after listening to countless mothers telling me I NEED a rocker in the nursery, I searched around for some alternatives.
Here is what I found:
Dorel Rocking Chair at Walmart. At $170 it's a fantastic option- affordable, good-looking and it comes in a variety of colors.
I then found this chair, which I absolutely love! It's the Monte Design Glider available at Bebe Depot in Montreal and also at juniorbaby.com (Canadian online store). It is sooo comfortable and stylish. It comes in a variety of colors including greys, tans, greens and, yes, orange.
Problem: At close to $1000 it was way more than I intended to spend. But I must admit that if my husband hadn't been with me, this chair may very well have come home with me. Nothing like a husband to keep your spending in check.
Then Ikea's Poang chair came to mind. To my surprise there was a rocking chair version. Affordable ($140), comfortable and stylish- Perfect!
Now, here's some eye candy:
