Professor Ergo's Thoughts:

The rocking chair has been around for hundreds of years but you've never seen one like this. This is a rocker for the modern age, solidly constructed, with no wasted materials. Though she will find it plenty comfortable, the Knoll Riart Rocker is not your grandmother's rocking chair.
