In the words of me engineering husband: "someone messed up the parabolic curve on this thing!"
When I noted that I purchased this rocking chair for the nursery I got a few comments that it doesn't rock (thanks for your honest feedback!). Hmmm… unfortunately I sent it off to be painted before I assembled and tested it.
Sidenote: thank you also for all your toaster suggestions, who knew people were so toaster crazy!?
The chair came back from the painters yesterday, we assembled it… and indeed: it does not rock.
It also sits low and very deep.
I'm a whopping 5 foot 2 inches tall and perhaps it's me that's the problem? I'm not sure.
But I do know for sure that I would not recommend the chair. I feel certain that my friend who vouched for the chair sat in one at Ikea that had been very broken in? And she is taller than I.
The $150 I spent on it was not money wasted, I needed a chair for the office and this will suffice.
An EXTREMELY GENEROUS client insisted that she buy me the rocking chair I originally wanted… I am so very grateful and blessed. I'll tell you more about it later.
