Where Would You Put This?

I think this circa-1970 rocking chair by Jack Rogers Hopkins (contact dealer for price) is absolutely intriguing. I love the way this traditional piece of furniture has been revitalized by an edgy design — and the dealer says that the chair is still very comfortable! Hopkins, an important and influential sculptor/furniture designer, who helped define the California design scene in the '70s, mastered laminated wood and applied it in absolutely unique ways.

I think this would look exceptionally cool in a modern nursery. But where do you see it?

i'd put it in the dungeon w/ all of my other torture devices. seriously though, maybe a movei set, but there's no way i'd let a baby near something w/ that many pointy bits.

I think this is gorgeous! Put a fluffy orange/red throw over it and call it a day. I'd love it in a nature-inspired nursery. Imagine it with lots of natural shapes, inspired by the lines of trees and water. I'd have shades of blue and green as the main colors, but throw in a few sunny shades as an accent.

I think it would be cute on a porch or in a back yard. It's a cute design but I don't like the color.

In the right place it could be nice, but it's way too out there to work in my house.

It's not so much that it's really ugly (well it is), but it just looks so uncomfortable!! You need to be able to sit back and relax in a rocking chair, ESPECIALLY if it's in a nursery. Seriously, you're rocking a baby for god knows how long until it stops crying, you're going to want to be comfy.

This is not my taste at all, so I wouldn't have it in my home.

I think it is seriously ugly too...but it all depends on where and what you do with it. I think personally it would look horrendous in a modern nursery but it would be absolutely adorable in a nursery designed like a fairy tale or a little foresty, then you have the abstract design of the chair to add flair and it also resembles a tree that you could bring into the decor.
