Many new moms favor this type of chair over the much newer glider style chairs. It could be because it reminds them of their mom or grandma comforting them when they were young or maybe they prefer them just because of their classic good looks. Oak indoor rocking chairs also have the benefit of easy clean up which is critical in a nursery.
The rocking chair is a great invention as it provides extreme comfort to anybody who sits on it. The base of the chair is made up of wood that is curved, which enables the user to rock back and forth by slightly pushing the ground using his/her feet. Because of its ergonomic design, when a person sits on a rocking chair it rocks until it finds the center of gravity of the persons weight.
