Inspiration Thursday: The Perfect Rocking Chair

Once again I have started my hunt for a comfy and stylish rocking chair.

I began the hunt when I was pregnant with my first and I am sad to say that I never quite found what I was looking for. In fact, I ended up settling for just a plain wood rocking chair because I thought I would rather have that then a big poofy recliner type of thing.

Boy was that a mistake.

After countless nights and hours upon hours spent with a colicy/acid-reflux baby I wished more then anything that I could just have a comfortable rocking chair that I could relax or maybe even sleep in as I nursed and rocked my baby through the wee hours of the morning.

I am excited to say that after browsing through a few different options, I think I have found the perfect chair...

It's the Finn Rocker from Anthropologie...and it makes my heart skip a beat. I havn't had the chance to sit in one, but it looks very soft and comfortable, and the curved top seems like it would make a nice little resting spot for my over-tired head. 

Now comes the sad part...There is a reason why this post is appearing on"Inspiration Thursday." Because the  $1,698.00 price tag means that I will never own it (unless it happens to go on a REALLY good sale). What I am hoping will happen, is that I can use this chair as "inspiration" and find a similar one (most likely used) that I can re-upholster. 

I'm keeping my fingers crossed. 

By the way, I am being featured today on one of my new favorite design blogs, Danielle Oakey Interiors. So head on over and check it out!

    I found your blog through Daniel Oakey's and I love it! I found this rocker the other day at Urban Outfitters. It has similar lines and is WAY cheaper than the Anthro rocker. Good luck!
