Wicker rocking chairs used to be a common presence in nurseries and our grandmas’ rooms. Their comfortable, oversized seat and back are so inviting it is difficult to resist them. But, wicker is fragile and tends to lose shape in humidity and crack when dry. The invention of resin (synthetic) wicker finally allowed us to bring our wicker rocking chairs outdoors, to our porches and decks. Resin wicker has all the pliability of natural wicker but is much more durable and weather resistant. The manufacturers are naturally copying the traditional style of old, ornate, highly decorated wicker rockers because of their popularity, but you can also find more modern resin wicker black rocking chairs, often designed in combination with wrought iron. While wicker makes very comfortable rocking chairs, with a thick, soft cushion and a pillow or two, your wicker rocker would easily become your favorite spot for a nap or a bit of daydreaming.
