Roundup: We Will Rock You

Summer's the perfect time to kick back, relax, and rock out. I'm not talking about stadium concerts, though, I'm talking about rocking chairs. Rocking chairs have been around since at least the 18th century, and Americans have evolved the rocker's style from a simple Shaker chair to more modern silhouettes, like the one seen in the Blu Dot Buttercup Rocker ($849).

While rockers like this Blu Dot Buttercup Rocker are definitely a splurge for many of us, there's no reason you can't get your rocker on the cheap as well. Spruce up a simple Ikea Lillberg rocker with a cool Bemz cover, or scour your local flea market for some antique rockers that are in good shape. If you want to contemporize your antique, give it a bright, beautiful paint job in one of your favorite colors.

Check out some of my other favorite chairs here.
