Rocking chairs in lieu of gliders in nurseries seems to be all the rage now. The trend has gained some steam with vintage pieces like the piece below, which was reupholstered.

The chrome versions are relatively hard to find, but you can find vintage bentwood Thornet pieces like the one below on eBay and Craigslist. Replicas are very affordable, but the originals will run you upwards of $1500 for a vintage piece. (I think my parents had one of these for me when I was little, wish I could find a photo!)
Comfy upholstered rockers are another nice option as seen in the room below designed by Sherry Hart.
Here are a few favorite rockers of mine in an array of styles:
1. Case Study Arm Shell Rocker by Modernica 2. Rapson Rapid Rocker by Ralph Rapson 3. Eddy Rocker by Duc Duc 4. Alto Rocker by Monte 5. Joya Rocker by Monte 6. Mid-Century Rocking Chair from Urban Outfitters 7. Bungalow Rocker by Nurseryworks 8. Buttercup Rocker by Blu Dot 9. Adelaide Rocker by Layla Grayce 10. Empire Rocker by Nurseryworks
