Do you remember bentwood rockers? We had one in our house when I was growing up and I loved rocking in it! They originated in the mid-1800’s when Thonet began creating them in rural Austria and they made quite a resurgence in the 1970’s, when a lot of reproduction bentwood rockers were made and sold.
Now, they are making another sort of resurgence. A lot of the reproduction bentwoods from the 70’s are making the rounds of thrift stores and Craigslist and getting themselves “made over” with fun colors and fabrics.
Here’s my version!
