The Eames, those Iconic mid-century modernists, were incredible innovators and produced many designs that still resonate strongly today. We’ve been discussing the pros and cons of their classic Eames RAR Rocker [2] over at our new baby & kids site, Inhabitots [3]. Stylish rocking chairs are hard to come by, and the Eames rocker is one of the few mid-century modern rocking chairs that is still in production and readily available, making it particularly appealing for design-loving moms. Produced by Herman Miller [4], the new Eames Rocker is made from recycled polypropelyne with a steel frame, while the original version (and knockoffs) in fiberglass are also fairly easy to find at vintage modern furniture shops.
