A Rocking Chair Glider for Nursery and Beyond


Keep these tips in mind while you shop for a glider rocker, then relax and enjoy the peace that the perfect nursery chair can bring to your home!

Designing and organizing the nursery may well be one of the more formidable tasks for new mothers and moms-to-be - outside of all the parenting and worrying duties, of course! Unfortunately, cutesy prints, loud primary colors,and cloying pastels dominate the traditional baby stores. This can leave few options for new parents looking to invest in quality furniture, like a glider chair, that will see the family beyond the nursery stage, and into the living room or den. 

Put Comfort First

At the end (or the beginning . . . or the middle) of the day, whatever makes a new mom feel comfortable will truly be the best nursery chair. Does she like to put her feet up? A nursery glider with ottoman might fit her needs - the ottomans are designed to move in cadence with the glider. The ottoman isn't attached to the glider, making it easy and convenient to adjust the distance between the glider and the ottoman. After its time in the baby room is up, the glider chair with ottoman transitions seamlessly to a den or living room, where it awaits tired feet at the end of a long work day.

Upholster with Care

Many new parents are bewildered by the upholstery options for glider rockers offered at nursery or baby stores. Fluffy lambs and mischievous monkeys are all fine and well for crib blankets or onesies, but when you're investing in an heirloom-quality glider for your nursery and beyond, you'll want to choose rich, butter leathery or soft, stain-resistant fabric. 

Contrary to popular belief, dark upholstery really isn't any more forgiving than light; dark will show ever-present milk stains, and lighter will betray your typical daily wear-and-tear. The key here is to choose a fabric or leather that will move with you from the nursery to the den, or to the sunroom, or to any other room in your home. Some like gliders with leather options for just this kind of versatility.

A Glider Rocking Chair Can Do It All

It rocks back and forth, glides forward and back, and swivels 'round like a dream - much like a new mom, a glider rocking chair really can do it all. Plus, if you choose classic fabric or leather, your nursery glider can become your favorite spot to enjoy late night TV, read in a library nook, or relax in the sunroom on a brisk winter day. 

There's no need to limit yourself to the offerings at baby stores, especially when you consider how important the comfort and style of your new glider rocker will be - both when baby comes and years from now. Our Amish rockers and gliders enable you to easily customize the nursery chair in so many ways - from optional extra width to embossed seats (monogram, anyone?) to nailhead upholstery trim color, we make it simple and stylish to get the look and comfort new parents deserve in a glider rocking chair. 

After all, haven't you got enough to worry about?
