Away from the negative there is hundreds of reviews with the vast majority very positive as seen by the very high rating of the wooden rocking chair as left by customers…

The problem with researching and writing about the 10 best rocking chairs for the living room is that now I want one. I want to rock man! I’m in my fifties now and have mastered the art of dad jokes and I can just image someone walking into my living room and seeing me on one of these babies.

I could say I’m an old rocker dude! (Yeah lame I know but I did say dad jokes right?)

Happy rocking chair shopping!
