Here’s a handpicked selection of some of the best rocking chairs for the front porch. There are several different styles available and they are made of multiple kinds of materials as well. Most of them could be used on a portico or outdoors, so you can move them around as needed.
The products chosen offer good value for money and are not overly expensive. They are made of everything from steel to cedar to eucalyptus and more. Each one has a different look and feel, so you can choose whatever fits your needs and decor. One of them is even foldable and reasonably lightweight, so you could take it around with you when you are on the move.
Here are each of the products along with a description.
This one folds up and can be securely latched to stay folded. So you can use it not only on a balcony but also take it to the beach, while camping, to the pool side, for a barbecue and more. It has a steel frame and is made of polyester material, so it is quite weather and water resistant. Which means it should last long even if you choose to use it outdoors.
It doesn’t require any assembly, so no messing around with tools and so on. It can take as much as 300 pounds and is very sturdily constructed. And it looks elegant enough to use in the living room too.
This product has a great looking eucalyptus frame. The seat and backrest are made of resin wicker, so it’s weather resistant. Moreover, it is wider than many such products on the market hence there’s plenty of space and good comfort, regardless of the user’s size requirements. The contoured back adds to the comfort factor.
If you like natural looks, you’ll love this one. It’s made of white cedar (a renewable wood) and definitely has an aura of simplicity and ruggedness to it. It is made in the USA and not imported. The seat uses curved pieces so it is comfortable to sit on for extended periods of time. This could make a great choice for those who love straightforward, unencumbered looks.
This product is an attractive teak brown color and would look good on a veranda. It’s made of acacia wood, which is naturally strong and durable and can easily withstand the elements. Hence the product should last a long time no matter where it is used. It requires assembly like many of the others on this list.
For those looking for a sturdy, rugged product, this would make an excellent choice. It has a commercial quality build so durability should never be an issue. The wood used is pressure treated pine. And it’s Amish handmade in the USA. It has a heavy, well made feel to it and wears very well.
