Porch rockers provide a place to take a break from the hustle and bustle of a hectic day and watch the world go by while sitting on the sidelines, rocking back and forth in a point without physically going anywhere. Rockers are a common sight on the porches in many parts of the world, and the chairs can accommodate the young, very old and all ages in between.
A variety of materials are used to build the porch rockers, including wicker, cedar wood and aluminum. While some rockers are produced in series, many others are handcrafted one at a time, often using locally-found materials. Porch rockers are often available in a variety of colors, including white, green and blue.
Not all the rocker arms are dimensioned exactly the same. Some porch rockers are over-sized to accommodate a higher weight capacity or simply offer more space. Double and triple porch rockers that can accommodate two and three people are also offered. Small and medium sized rockers are available for children so they, too, can enjoy the pleasures of rocking on the porch with the rest of the family.
