Getting reacquainted with an old friend: The Ny Rocking Chair
The Ny Rocking Chair has been in the Museum of Modern Art’s collection since the 1970s, and it’s easy to see why. Minimalist design, high functionality and comfort are the pillars to any great piece of furniture.

After seeing this rocking chair, I’m not sure why anyone would want a rocking chair with more moving parts than a grandfather clock, or one with extreme hand carvings. (Nurseries are perhaps, the only exception to that rule.) But for the rest of us living that downtown life, the Ny Rocking Chair is the perfect stress reliever that we didn’t know we missed until we brought it back into our life.

It’s like the friend you always used to have good times with but drifted apart from. Not because of any sort of beef, but just because your lives have taken you in different directions. Then all of a sudden you meet again and boom, it’s the same or even better than before. I’m rambling… the soft rocking motion has got my thoughts flowing.
