Get the Look: 30 Modern Rocking Chairs

A few weeks  ago I did a small roundup of modern rocking chairs to accompany a decor story in the Boston Globe. (Every Monday my lovely colleague Jaci Conroy writes an interior design article for the Globe and I pull together a corresponding group of furnishings & accessories.) I found so many great modern rocking chairs + contemporary rocking chairs that I figured a blog post was in order.

These all have great styling and are a far departure from traditional rockers or overstuffed gliders for the nursery. We have an Eames molded plastic rocker in sky blue on the Cape that we bought for my son, though I think it’s in our room now. Sometimes I use it on our little deck. I didn’t include that iconic example here, but there are other examples (mid-century modern furniture replicas), like the #16, the Swerve which has jaunty cut-outs and a full wooden base.

I love the look of  #5, a very spare rocker from NYC shop Matter, and of love the tall mint-upholstered one by Normann Copenhagen. And if only I could place that blush colored Artifort rocker in the model apartment I’m decorating. Probably thought, the one that makes the most sense for my lifestyle is Gus Modern’s GT rocker (#13). It is definitely a contemporary rocking chair in style, but with enough cushion to be comfy.

Get the Look: 23 Pastel Home Furnishings

Did yesterday’s post Montage: 30 Pretty Pastel Interiors convince you to go soft? Some of those rooms weren’t sickeningly sorbet, there was a richness to them, I thought. Still, I understand if you have qualms. You could easily add a touch of pastel home furnishings here and there however. A sky blue chaise, peachy table linens, a mint fridge. Kidding on the mint fridge part; unless you’re going for a retro diner look. I wonder how many people have purchased that Smeg mint refrigerator from West Elm? I’m more inclined to go for a World’s Away turquoise bar cart myself. And I’m definitely eyeing the woven hamper. At least splurge on a fouta and some bamboo cutlery for a pastel picnic. Ok my pretties, here are your pastel picks for the day!
