The Authentic Kennedy Rocker


This good old-fashioned southern rocker has become famously known as the Kennedy Rocker because President Kennedy so loved his rocker and took it with him everywhere. You can read more on the history of this comfortable rocker by clicking here.

The secret of this chair's comfort lies in the shrewdly planned steam-bent curve of the back post, which sweep in to give firm support to the sitter's back and yet carries his weight down to the exact point on the rockers where they contact the floor. This makes for a perfect, restful balance. Many physicians recognize the healthful influence of rocking chair sitting as an aid to circulation and as a reliever of tension. The wide arms make this rocker a perfect chair for nursing and feeding babies.

The rocker is shaped, steam-bent, and assembled while still green to a tried and true design. There are no unnecessary frills - every part is functional - even the knobs atop the back posts have their use as a place to tie a back cushion. The seat and back offer firmness and natural spring through the use of tightly woven Indonesian cane. The woven cane seat is replaceable should anything ever happen to damage it. This rocker is recommended only for indoor use because of the cane seat and back.

NOTE: These well thought of rockers are crafted in small batches by proud artisans. Lead time can vary from approximately four weeks to eight weeks and may sometimes take longer. Occasionally, a delay in materials can affect production. We will do our best to keep you informed.
