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.
Understandably, hammocks and hammock chairs kept out of the elements (including away from insects) last longer than those that are not. Popular locations for hammocks and hammock chairs are screened and closed-in porches. Although these areas are not winterized to protect people from the cold and therefore not used everywhere all year around, they do provide shelter from precipitation, sun, mosquitos and other flying bugs, and wind-borne objects, such as leaves.
