Design is a funny thing sometimes. And, when I say funny I mean confusing! Well, confusing may be too strong of a word, but…
So, I’m in the Balitmore/Washington Airport (BWI) and am sitting in a rocking chair. Yes, a rocking chair! Sidebar: I saw them when I landed at BWI last week and was excited to sit in one before my departing flight. Does this make me weird? As I was saying… Seems like an airport is kind of an odd place for rocking chair, huh? Typically, you’d find a soothing chair like this on a porch, in a hospital or a baby’s nursery, right? So why do you think the designers placed them here?
Perhaps because air travel can be stressful and this would be a way to calm anxious travelers? Or, maybe chairs like this are actually handmade in a small town in Maryland and it’s a “nod” to the locals? Quite possibly, they’re just here as a way to make layovers a little more relaxing.
Whatever the reason, I love a good rocking chair, yet don’t own one. I’ve looked for them and have only ever found one that was groovy enough to own, but I didn’t buy it because I didn’t have space for it.
So, I thought I’d see if I could compile 5 fab rockers and I’m not talking about rockers like Adam Levine from Maroon 5!
Enjoy… and it was hard to choose just 5!!!
