My friend S. and myself went to a design fleamarket the other day. There was great stuff and if it hadn´t rained I would have taken lots of photos to share with you. S., who hails originally from California, asked me why Europeans don´t have rocking chairs. So I did some research and, yes, most rocking chairs are indeed not ´European´ (like the Charles and Ray Eames RAR rocking chair from 1950) or too ´grandfatherly´.
Here are a few rocking chairs I like.

Do you like to relax in a rocking chair?
