Rock On | Fine Art Photograph (c) by Colleen Kammerer
Two vintage rockers sit on a sandy front porch of a beach house.
Rocking chairs are often thought of as a way to relax and unwind. Many adults and children alike, find rocking chairs soothing because of the gentle motion. The rocking motion mimics the safety and comfort felt when rocking in one's mother's hands or a cradle during infancy.
Though American inventor Benjamin Franklin is sometimes credited with inventing the rocking chair, historians actually trace the rocking chair's origins to North America during the early 18th century,when Franklin was just a child. Rockers were originally used in gardens made from ordinary chairs with rockers attached. In 1725 early rocking chairs first appeared in England. The production of wicker rocking chairs reached its peak in America during the middle of the 18th century. These wicker rockers, as they were popularly known, were famous for their craftsmanship and creative designs.
