While your grandmother may love her Windsor rocker — as cozy as it may be — those chairs don’t exactly scream “stylish”. Finding a rocking chair that is as sleek as it is comfortable is easier than you think. You just have to know where to look. These three companies are leading a rocking chair revolution that will have you itching to add one to your home.Ikea Gronadal, $249When Ikea released its fall catalog over the summer, the design world did a collective gasp. The company has built an iconic style at affordable prices — which isn’t necessarily a good thing. While nice to look at, the furniture wasn’t always regarded as the best quality. And then came the autumn collection. It’s full of fresh ideas, high-quality materials, and pieces that are making us rethink just what the “Ikea look” means. The Gronadal rocking chair is an ideal example of the new image. Stylish natural materials, a touch of brushed metal, and the Scandinavian simplicity that minimalist homes crave — the Gronadal is quickly going to become this generation’s front porch rocker.Mexa Ixtapa, $500Does a rocking chair have a place in an urban industrial space? It does if it’s the handmade Ixtapa Leather Rocking Chair from Mexa. The powder-coated steel frame is made by certified welders. From there, artisan weavers skillfully form the soft leather seat. The finishing touch is the solid walnut wood rockers. All come together to create a masculine, slightly gritty chair that is sure to be your favorite seat in the house.Joybird Paley, $719Joybird has secured itself as the source for contemporary mid-century modern furniture. From seating to storage to decor, they have everything you need to create a stylish, mid-century-inspired home. The Paley rocking chair is no exception.
