Sources for swivel/rocker chairs

Posted by andreadeg (My Page) on

Well, it's finally time to say good bye to the rocker/glider. I bought it when I brought my son home so I would have a place to rock him, but he is 9 now and the rocker glider has been used and looks like death warmed over.

It's time to upgrade a little! My son still likes to sit in the rocker so I want to retain that, plus I'd like the ability to have the chair swivel.

Any recommendations on where to buy such an item? Ethan Allen had one chair but it is a little boxy looking.

Their are many manufactures for the swivel - rocker, try either LazyBoy or Best Chair or Fairfield Chair to name a few.

La-Z-Boy has a lifetime warranty on the mechanics of most of the recliners. We recently had a problem with the mechanism with our 11-12 year old La-Z-Boy recliner. I figured out what was broken and called the company. They told me what parts I needed to fix the chair and I had them free of charge within 1 week.

Fairfield has a good many choices! Thank you! I've never heard of Fairfield before; can anyone comment on theq uality of Fairfield's products?

Carolina Chair is another option. They sell direct to the consumer. We bought a sleeper sofa from them and they are great to work with and the quality is excellent.

check out Tell City glider rockers. I've had one since 1977 and love it still today! Replacement parts are easy to get as I did have to replace the straps one time in 35 years. It was a very inexpensive fix. Chair is as beautiful today as it was in the 70's.
