Amish Caratunk Glider

Swiss Valley Rockers

This glider is one of our most beloved - and for good reason. Supported by best-in-class gliding mechanisms and a solid wood frame that promises decades of use, the Caratunk Mission Glider offers an irresistible marriage of quality and style that's as comfortable in the office as it is in the nursery. Every element of this piece is handcrafted to order by dedicated Amish woodworkers in a small wood shop in the northern United States, giving the Caratunk the heirloom quality that can only come from fine American hand craftsmanship. With countless decades of heritage behind it and a long future of use ahead, this upholstered glider is a masterclass in its own right.

As standard, the Caratunk includes:

  • Ultra-durable mortise and tenon build
  • Kiln-dried wood for industry-leading strength
  • All surfaces hand-sanded and finished for a perfect look and feel
  • 2.4lb density in seating foam, the deepest available
  • Steel bearings for a smooth, long-lasting gliding motion
  • All upholstery cut and laid by hand
  • Solid wood construction throughout

Your Office, Your Way

While the Caratunk is a popular choice for the nursery, the book nook, and the movie marathoner, the Caratunk is most often found in the office. Its strong, smart lines and versatile design make it the perfect choice for a huge variety of décor, while its deep cushions and seamless gliding motion ensure that no matter what you need to do - reading over reports, drafting responses, or simply taking a moment to decompress with a book - the Caratunk will provide the ideal level of comfort and relaxation for your needs. When crafted with black leather and a darker wood stain, there are few professional offices that wouldn't benefit from the beauty of this piece.

The Caratunk is a wonderful conversation starter, too - each one is unique, and carries with it all of the decades of experience and dedication that the Amish woodworkers who craft them bring to work every single day.

Upholstered glider

Amish woodworkers like to keep it simple: American materials, time-honored designs, and hard work are their stock-in-trade.
