any granny worth her salt has a nice rocker. but they don't all have to be rickety, unattractive comfort machines - there are some rockers out there worth your trouble.... check it:
this gorgeous pair of Ole Wanscher rockers - solid teak with white raw silk cushions. not priced for the weak of heart, but absolutely stunning.
this perfect condition 50s/60s danish modern rocker made in denmark by selig is angled but sleek and would look perfect in that empty corner right over there - you know, the one right next to the radiator where you can sit all day, crocheting doilies.
alright, i'm aware this could be a deal breaker - but really, the frame of this chair is absolutely gorgeous. imagine it recovered in a nice, modern fabric from reprodepot or purl and covered with a handmade patchwork lap quilt. oh be still my heart...you KNOW you want it.
