Ask Design Mom: Rocking Chair Fabric

August 16, 2007

Hi Design Mom.
I’m a new Mom & a photographer so your site is just wonderful for me to browse through. My baby is already a year old and I haven’t found the perfect fabric rocking chair for her room that’s worth the chunk of money. Any suggestions??? Cheers, Heather Walker

Hi Heather! I don’t know if you’ve attempted shopping for fabric online, but I highly recommend it. Try Repro Depot and Purl Soho which I posted about here. Or Warm Biscuit
, which I posted about here. And of course, any excuse to get your hands on some Amy Butler textiles (like those in the above photo) is a good excuse.

There are some new names suggested here. Thanks! And I know you’re a busy woman, but I’ve extended the Rockin’ Girl Blogger award to you at my creativity blog.

Thanks for these great recommendations. Some day I actually hope to have time to sew.

I think she means fabric rocking chairs as in “upholstered rocking chairs,” not fabric for rocking chairs. I only suggest this because I’m interested in your recommendations for good rocker/gliders … bestchairs has some nice modern ones but I’d like to know about more.

Yes, I was looking for rocking chairs that are more than just wood – something very comfortable, with fabric. However, I’m bookmarking some of these sites you mentioned, thank you so much.

Heather. I’m so embarrassed! I read your question too fast and thought you were looking for fabric choices. Too funny.

One of my Guest Moms, named Sara, wrote an excellent post about rocking chairs here.
