Six Chairs That Rock

At Kouamo we love the Cuban tradition of reclining in a ‘sillón’ and watching the world go by. Here are six of our favourite rocking chairs for enjoying the Spring sunshine - either indoors or out, wherever you are.

The First Rocking Chair

We adore the colour, line and simplicity of these chairs (£1,495 - £1,850) designed by Fien Muller & Hannes Van Severen. The powder coated steel or brass frames with yellow, pink or natural hide slung seats - also tone beautifully with our Juan y Pitin Cushions (£65) which feature Cuban sillóns.

Made in natural rattan, we want to curl up in this elegant Danish chair (£475) with a good book and soak up the sunshine. We love the simple, contemporary Nordic shape and soothing rocking motion.

Mid Century Rocking Chair

This cushioned rocking chair (£350) combines comfort, with bold colour and gorgeous mid century styling. We love the sunset shades of the burnt orange upholstery which looks great teamed with these Kouamo Esplanade cushions (£49).

Mbrace Outdoor Rocking Chair

We’re drawn to this unconventional woven mesh chair (£1,495) by Sebastian Herkner for Dedon. Described as capturing ‘barefoot luxury’ it has a wonderfully cocooned shape - to slip into after a dip in the pool. The design comes in three colourways Spice, Pepper and Atlantic.
