With a goal of gleaning some expertise about the newest trends in glider rockers, we met up with some of our stye-savvy hayneedle.com buyers. They provided us with a handy list of their top glider picks and helpful tips for anyone in search of finding perhaps the comfiest chairs ever.
Nothing changes your life quite like the arrival of a baby — that’s for certain. But some things never change, such as Baby’s basic needs for food, love, care, and comfort. Glider rockers have long been a nursery staple, and for good reason. They’re the only type of chair that smoothly, silently, and effortlessly helps parents rock their babies to sleep.
And here’s what parents are finding out – cozy comfort can be stylish! Here are our top picks for chairs, both tried-and-true and so brand new.
Traditional glider rockers have a wooden rocking chair frame and plenty of specially designed padding to keep parent and baby comfortable. The style is classic and complements most nurseries. They often come with matching ottomans or in crib-coordinating colors as well.
Back and forth is basic, but some of the most popular glider styles incorporate a base that gives parents even more movement. You’ll find swiveling chairs in both traditional and upholstered styles.
New upholstered styles convincingly look like any other living room chair. These designs hide their smooth-gliding technology beneath a traditional recliner or accent chair frame covered completely in on-trend fabrics. More versatile designs help your chair live on past the nursery stage. When baby’s through rocking, just bring it out into the main room!
Some of the newest chairs designed for parents abandon the gliding mechanism completely. No, it’s not a new technology — it’s rather a return to form. Traditional rocking chairs, now with added padding and upholstery, are perfect for the nursery.
