I love Scandivian rockers but this one is by far my favorite.
Ilmari Tapiovaara designed this Mademoiselle Rocking chair in 1956. The combination of the high back and long slender rockers make it look elegant and sit incredibly comfortable.

During our trip to Helsinki these rockers were just everywhere. I guess mostly because Tapiovaara is Finish. I never actually sat in one until then and I have to admit it’s quite an experience. I thought the wooden structure would feel very hard and maybe even uncomfortable, but on the contrary it supports you back really well and feels very comfortable. I would definitely recommend testing it!
