Dress up your porch this spring and summer with some new furniture. We’ve searched and found some of the most modern and stylish of designs – and we’re swooning for both the fashion-forward energy and functionality of them all. These additions will certainly help with your patio design and comfort of outdoor spaces. Scroll through our favorite rocking chairs below.
1. Square Collection
These modern designs have a bit of rock to them and will fit in nicely with your crisp vision for your outdoor space. Made from wood, this collection from Meridian, dubbed “the square,” has a variety of pieces to choose from depending on the space it’s serving. We especially love the clean palette it holds and how it gives the freedom to add various color and patterns to personalize each.
2. Retro Yellow
We know Amazon has a lot of great furniture to choose from and at amazing price points. This retro yellow design, also known as the “Poolside Roberta,” is such a fun addition to any outdoor area. It also comes in turquoise and white if you’re looking for a spunky shape but with a more toned down color to match your personality.
3. Modern Accent
Manutti features a lot of interesting designs as well. This one is definitely within the more modern realm, with its smaller seat back. But if you take notice it’s still a rocking chair! If you’re interested in a regular chair though, the design comes with the simple frame and perfect for breakfast bars.
4. Rocking Rattan
Rattan is a wonderful material for those that want to add some bohemian flair to their home. It’s got a raw texture that speaks to nature-loving souls and ethereal spirits. You can get this rattan rocking chair over at Horm. Beware, the price point is a bit higher but worth the quality of the craftsmanship.
5. Wooden Mid-Century
Here’s another wonderful pair of rocking chairs that you can snag on Amazon. These outdoor wood pieces hold a beautiful blend of modern furniture design and traditional functionality. They come with cushions and leave room for your own throw pillows (pops of color or texture are welcome here!). And don’t worry, the cushions are water-resistant.
6. Solaura Set
We found some black steel rocking chairs for our industrial visions. These hold an edgier finish than what we’re used to in traditional backyard furniture and can also be purchased at Amazon. This is also a 3-piece set that will serve your needs well without the headache of finding matching designs.
A favorite of the bunch comes by way of Wayfair. This gives off definite Earthbound vibes but also a warm, welcoming feeling as well – which is the best of all worlds when it comes to outdoor furniture. Don’t worry, it rocks too. The design is based on Mayan hammock work and comes in a variety of amazing colors – including rainbow!
8. Simple Classic
If you’re more of a traditionalist, Amazon has you covered as well. What’s great about this classic, simple wooden rocking chair is that you can leave it bare or add your own color to it. This is a natural wood Adirondack chair that’s well within a modest budget – and can also stand on its own as well as in pairs.
9. Misty Grey
Similar to the simple chair above, this Amazon find holds a more nautical vibe. The grey washing is right on trend and would look incredible on a covered patio or porch. And it’s crafted from eucalyptus wood while coming from a company that’s been crafting for over 100 years.
10. Armchair Rockers
These retro-esque rockers have armrests and fun colors. Found at Fermob, these chairs come in fun colors such as lagoon, steel, storm, and anthracite. It can also be used both indoors and outdoors – coming with a matching coffee table if needed.
Fermob has a smaller edition of the one we saw above. Still modern and functional as a rocking chair, this too comes in exciting colors like lagoon blue and storm grey, with the addition of poppy red and pink praline. These are great for camping as well, easy to store in trailers and the like.
Amazon gives us another beautiful rocking chair that blends traditional love and modern subtlety. It too comes with a water-resistant cushion and leaves space to add your own flair in the throw pillow department. Made with acacia wood and with just the right amount of updated design, it’s a wonderful way to begin the transformation of your outdoor space.
Yes, wicker rocking chairs are still a thing. This ratton wicker design that you can catch on Amazon is super comfortable as well and will fit within the lines of a traditional home without fuss. It’s a really sturdy frame as a leg rest built in, and super safe for rocking at all times. And don’t worry, it’s quick to assemble once you’ve ordered it as well.
14. Kozyard Pieces
Amazon brings us this 3-piece rocking wicker bistro set as well. It comes with two chairs and a table to fit your entertaining needs. The cushions are outdoor-friendly and they come with the red striped pillows as well.
15. 2-Person Bench
Not all rocking pieces are actually chairs, sometimes you can get lucky and snag a 2-seater bench that does the same job. These are great for families or to stand on their own on the porch. Check out this find out over at Amazon as well. You can even buy assembly to make the addition run even more smoothly.
Ton has some great pieces as well. And that includes this rocking armchair. The “Dondolo” features a manually bent frame with an old-age spirit. The foundation color is dark wedge while its surface material comes in a neutral “cane” tone that makes it a traditional piece to easily fit into any home.
17. Oversized Cushioned
We found this oversized cushioned design over at Ton as well. It has been dubbed the “Wave” and features a redesign of its predecessor. And it was made for the 150th anniversary of furniture bending in Bystřice pod Hostýnem. It’s a really special piece that you can decide on in a great variety of natural tones.
We found a more casual design as well. This checkered piece is a perfect contemporary counterpart to any outdoor selection. The black and white makes it an easy piece to mix and match with as well. Gervasoni will provide you with an even bigger selection and detail.
19. Garda Rope
Ataman Rockin’ Chair is a design made by AM Studio and there’s some modern armrest that finishes off the design with just the right amount of futuristic innovation. The mixed material design – rope and metal – creates a fun industrial strength about it as well.
JARDIN rocking deck chair designed by Klaus Nolting it’s uber contemporary and we love the chicness and minimal appeal. Its high back makes it a more comfortable choice in the modern category and there’s other pieces in the collection to finish off an entire spread of outdoor scenes.
