As a gift to us from my parents-in-law we got a rocking chair! It was so generous of them, and I'm so excited by this super comfy and modern chair. We got it from a Canadian company called Monte, that specializes in nursery furniture. I had been admiring Monte's designs for awhile, all handmade in Canada, but I didn't think I would end up owning one. You can customize the look you want for your piece as well, by choosing from tons of different fabrics and woods. You can even pick fun colours for the lumbar pillow. Or, as we have done, have a bright colour on one side and the chair fabric for the other side.
What really sold me was one of the pictures of their chairs. Here is a women sitting in her rocker reading Dwell Magazine to her baby. That is so going to be me! Our baby's first sentence will be "that is so mid-century modern" haha.
We are really enjoying having this rocker in the nursery. Elara seems to like it too as she often falls asleep while being rocked. Then it's an easy couple of steps to put her in the crib. The rocking chair is such a great piece of furniture, that when we are done with babies it can be moved to the living room. I'm sure it will get endless use by all of us!
