Welcome to the daily series “In Search Of”, where we look high and low on Krrb for one-of-a-kind items that we must have now! Today, it’s all about “rocking chairs” and we’ve got loads of them.

They are the image of classic Americana — wooden rocking chairs creaking on the front porch. We’ve seen them painted and upholstered and made of wood, metal and lucite. Find one that’s cozy or sleek, whatever gets you rocking. Paired with a tall glass of lemonade (spiked or not, your choice) and a book, and you’ve got the perfect summer past time.

    You put it perfectly! I’m digging the double rocker and would love to have something like that for my friends visiting Brooklyn.

    From a mother nursing her baby to a retired man reading the paper, who doesn’t want to kick back in a rocking chair? I’m glad someone is bringing these chairs out of retirement.
