Boston Rocker

Definition: Boston Rocker


No, it's not the band that sang "More Than A Feeling." A Boston rocker is a type of American rocking chair from the 19th century. The rocker has a seat that curves down at the front, a decorative panel on a high spindled back, and a wide top rail. It's also the type of chair that many university shops sell, embossed with their school's logo. They might seem kind of granny, but they're pretty good at moving to and fro.

I like the way the floor is painted more than the chair.

An excellent rocker for me when I had my son!!! I fit in the shape of the chair as if it was made for me!! The curved back is very comfortable and the seat was the same!!! I would nurse my baby while rocking him!
