Get Rocked


Modern Rocking chairs offer all of the homey comfort of their traditional predecessors, without tipping a home’s decor back in time.

That’s why we love the Keinu by Eero Aarnio. With a form so round the ball stop is actually a necessary part of the design, Keinu gives rockers a curvaceous and exciting look they’re just not known for.

The seat creates a signature Aarnio cocoon around the sitter with closed sides that reach up to the armrests, and the bright yellow version gives makes the chair a fun way to rock the stress out. Even Anthropologie, the outfitter and home store known for making older designs and styles relevant again, jumped on this design.

Is this a sign that modernism is finally becoming mainstream enough for the well-heeled traditional-ite? We hope so.
