The best adult rocking chairs use your specific measurements so the craftsman knows what size to make each part. Why?
The answer is simple: we come in all different shapes and sizes, so the chair must reflect this fact in order to be truly comfortable.
Unfortunately, the most common approach is to make a "standard-sized" chair to fit the "average" person. This becomes a rocker that doesn't fit anyone very well and often creates uncomfortable pressure points.
Not only that, but it leaves contact gaps in areas that really need good support (like the lower back). The only way to fix this problem is to use cushions to fill spaces and soften pressure points.
When your measurements are taken into account, a much more comfortable rocking chair is made. Cushions are not required because nasty pressure points and areas of poor support are removed.
What you get is a custom adult rocking chair that fully and naturally cradles your body in a relaxed position. This support provides great lower back pain relief too, and that is a beautiful thing!
Here is a video of how I make a beautiful rocker.
The measurement graphic, form and this Measurement Video will help guide you through the process.
Then you can feel confident about getting the right fit. I've also included a description of each measurement so that you can understand its importance. Adult rocking chairs need to fit YOU!
Here's a few tips to simplify things before we start.
By the way, you can use either metric or inch units for the form. I always tell my clients that if there is something unclear or confusing about what you see or read, feel free to contact me by phone or e-mail. I'll be glad to talk to you and clear things up.
I also offer a measuring service if you are not confident about taking measurements yourself. I will take a rocking chair with me to your residence or office and measure you myself.
