Italian design firm ITOneOff is bringing the rocking chair into the 21st century with a gorgeous, wobbly shell chair aptly named the UFO.

Creating a chair that both rocks and spins was not enough -- the designers made a multitude of variations for the chair's shell to justify the $9,000 price tag, from the use of beautiful lacquered wood and butter-soft leather to its whimsical basketball interpretation.

Marketing from the company even seems to tout the chair as a piece of exercise equipment, with young athletes doing dive rolls in and out of it.

You might be wondering why no one thought of this concept before. Ultimately, it is a welcome change for a neglected but still loved piece of furniture.
