Best Wooden Rocking Chairs for Outdoors

Rocking chairs provide a bit of nostalgia—they're an icon of American culture—and bring us back to a simpler time when relaxing was how we ended the day. Although many folks attribute Benjamin Franklin with inventing the rocking chair, there's no historical record as to who truly did, or when.

However, we do know rocking chairs have been around since the early 18th century and made their first appearance in the American colonies. Initial designs were often two-seaters but evolved to single-seat chairs over the years, and today they come in many different shapes, colors, and designs that sit in our living rooms, nurseries, and on our front porches.
