It is difficult to resist wood when we come to choose our outdoor furniture. It just looks so natural. Wooden rocking chairs go together with wooden porches, decks and a lawn, surrounded by trees, like they just grew from the earth. And there are so many types of wood to choose from: pine, cypress, ash, cedar, oak, teak, you name it and you will find a wooden rocking chair made of it. Wooden rockers are popular not only because of their natural looks. They last a long time, because wood is durable and resilient; they come in hundreds of styles because wood is so easy to work with; and they are extremely comfortable, because wood breathes and adjusts to our bodies. Some woods are more sustainable than others, so it is always best to choose a wooden rocking chair made of a homegrown wood. Wood has another great advantage: if you get tired of the way your wooden rocking chair looks like, wood is easy to paint.
