Habitus Loves… Rocking Horses

We thought we’d get a little playful this week with 8 of our favourite rocking horses for kids and big kids.


Rocking Squares


Designed by:
Frederick Roijé

Why we love it: We love that this uses abstract forms to represent a common and unmistakable iconic child’s play thing – but like so many modern rocking horses, it’s adult-sized.

Where you can get it:





  Designed by: Oiva Toikka for Magis

Why we love it: This is a fun take on the traditional rocking horse; turning it into a caricature of the extinct dodo and in heaps of great colours.

Where you can get it:

Corporate Culture




  Designed by: Doshi Levien for Richard Lampert

Why we love it: Although we can only show you the rendered drawings, this rocker by Doshi Levien is a perfect example of form meets function. Perfectly formed, beautiful materials, elegant fun.

Harry Rocking Stool


Designed by:
Kenneth Cobonpue

Why we love it: This shaggy little creature offers a playful aesthetic. Its fabric strips are sewn to a removable cover – practical and fun.

Where you can get it:


Hut Hut



  Designed by: Kalon

Why we love it: Apart from being a beautiful piece of sculpture, this little rocker comes in a range of materials and colours, from bamboo to cork and red and blue resin. Something for every home and every child.

Where you can get it:

Kalon Studios



  Designed by: Jarrod Lim

Why we love it: You may not be able to tell from the picture, but these rocking horses (or is it a sheep?) are adult-sized and so much fun! Gorgeously fluffy.

Where you can get it:





  Designed by:Pininfarina

Why we love it: This children’s rocking horse is made from a single solid piece of wood, crafted with comfortable curves and featuring a leather-covered handle bar. Love its simplicity and its raw beauty.

Where you can get it:


Reggie the Ecorocker

  Designed by:Ecorocker

Why we love it: This one has an obvious environmental appeal, made from 100% recycled cardboard, but it’s also an elegant take on a classic design.
