Metal rocking chairs are most of the time made of wrought iron, and, like other garden wrought iron furniture, have an air of times long gone, and look like they belong on the patios in Spanish villas or Italian outdoor restaurants. The traditional metal or wrought iron rocking chairs look very ornate, almost Victorian, and look great on a patio paved with natural stones or bricks. Some of the metal rocking chairs have a seat and back covered with resin wicker, which visually softens the strong lines of metal. But, when it comes to comfort, you will need to depend on plush cushions and pillows. Embellish your metal rocking chair with a dash of color and some attractive patterns on the cushion covers. Metal rocking chairs are usually painted with a special very durable paint, but it is still better to keep them away from the rains. Check regularly your rockers for scratches and if you see any, sand them and paint them with a rustproof paint.
