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.
‘Kyra’ Bloomingville Rocking Chair
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.
Eames RAR Chair
This iconic chair (£448) was designed by Charles and Ray Eames in the 50s and is made by Vitra. It fits the shape of the body to perfection. The moulded recyclable polypropylene is available in beautiful Spring shades - including Ocean, Poppy & Mustard.
Created as the ultimate calm, safe space to escape the stresses of modern life - the Cradle (£3,975) is a collaborative project by designers at Victoria University of Wellington. It is handcrafted in New Zealand from local, natural materials.
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.
