These modern rockers put a contemporary twist on a traditional furniture concept. While the rocking chair is synonymous with old age, this particular type of seating has undergone a number of contemporary changes over the years.

One of the most interesting innovations in rocking chair designs has been the inclusion of kid-sized seats. Taking a cue from the popularity of toys such as the seesaw, designers are keen on creating pint-sized rockers for children. Some of these tiny rocker designs include rocking high chairs, bulky baby recliners and chromatic rocker toys.

Of course, there are also modern rockers built for adults as well. These new types of rocking chairs feature innovative and contemporary designs that are a perfect addition to any modern home. Some of these creative adult rockers include modern rocking hammocks, bike frame chairs and even origami-inspired rocking chairs.
