Habitus Loves… Rocking Chairs

It turns out rocking chairs aren’t just for grandpa, with our top 8 picks of beautiful chairs that rock!


The Eames Rocker





Designed by:
Charles and Ray Eames

Why we love it: The moulded plastic seat of this chair makes it a design icon, but as a rocker it is design heaven in motion – 2 please!

Where you can get it:

Living Edge in Australia

Soft Rocker





Designed by: Established & Sons

Why we love it: This “boxy” design was launched in Milan. The fully upholstered chair is described by those quirky kids at Established & Sons as supporting a “state of ‘relaxed alertness’”

Where you can get it:

Established & Sons






Designed by: Gervasoni

Why we love it: All in white, this lacquered aluminium would work inside or out with its glossy PVC weave.

Where you can get it:


Body Raft


Designed by: David Trubridge

Why we love it: Like much of David Trubridge’s pieces, this seat is a celebration of timber and relaxation. We love its organic form and the way it invites you to recline and unwind.

Where you can get it:

Cappellini and Corporate Culture






Designed by:
Wiel Arets

Why we love it: On first inspection, this rotation moulded chair doesn’t look like a rocker, but with a slight curve on the base it has a very subtle, but enjoyable movement.

Where you can get it:

Quinze & Milan and Corporate Culture



Designed by: Thomas Heatherwick

Why we love it: Well, it’s not your standard back-and-forth rocket, but this spinning chair makes us feel like The Borrowers, sitting on a child’s spinning top.

Where you can get it:

Corporate Culture





Designed by: Markus Krauss

Why we love it: This rocker can be used in a number of ways, as a chair, a rocker for 1 or even as a rocker for 2 (so sweet). We love its versatility.

Where you can get it:

Idle Rocking Chair





Designed by: Jarrod Lim

Why we love it: This beautiful union of timber and upholstery in a simple form. We love all of Lim’s work and we’re excited to hear that Innermost will be releasing more of his pieces this year.
