Now as you know, I am vintage through and through, but for some reason when it comes to rocking chairs, I seem to prefer more contemporary and retro shapes to the old fashioned wooden versions. So I am really loving how Loaf have updated this design which is reminiscent of the old rattan rockers.
If I were to consider a more traditionally shaped chair, I think the best way to update it would be to paint it in an eye popping colour. You may remember this gorgeous yellow chair, belonging to Lisa Aaron of Lou Lou and Oscar. It appeared on the cover of the current issue of Mollie Makes Home (which I edited! ...soz, did I already mention that?! tee hee!) :) I think this looks fab, especially with the addition of the eclectic mix of cushions Lisa added...

Then of course there is the classic retro shape of the Eames rocker, designed in 1950. It's simple shape manages to give impact to any room, whether in plain white for that Scandi feel, or in a bright colour that makes a statement.
