Category: Rocking Chair - Comfort By Size

January 20, 2020

Gary,

I ordered one of your walnut rockers as a present for my wife for her 60th birthday. She's wanted a rocking chair for quite some time to rock our grandchildren. I can't tell you how happy she is with the chair.

It's more beautiful than I imagined and is extremely comfortable. Our 5'3" daughter and 6'2" son-in-law were there and we all tried it out. I don't know how you did it but everyone who sat in the chair felt it was designed for them. My wife also commented on how 'soft' the wood is because it's so smooth. Never thought I would hear wood described as soft. It's really hard to walk past the chair and not sit down in it and relax for a while.

The service you provide is also top notch and something I really appreciate. You and Austin were very responsive, even though it was during the Christmas holiday. There was great communication throughout the ordering and shipping process. Even Mainfreight, the company you use to ship the chair, provided outstanding service.

It was really a pleasure doing business with your company. Please provide thanks to everyone!

Regards,
C.

Gary,

Thank you so much for your thoughtful note. We also have been traveling, hence the rather late acknowledgement of how thrilled we are with our new rocker. It is so beautiful, a real work of art. And more important it is equally comfortable for myself (5'2") and my husband (6'1"). Would not have believed that to be possible. We are so happy with our chair, thanks again.

Appreciatively,
P.F.

Hi Gary,

Thank you for the kind note. Our experience with your company has been great. Autumn did a wonderful job answering all of our questions and building that confidence, plus I really appreciated the ease of paying online with PayPal.

The chair your team designed and built is perfect for us; which is impressive as I am 6'5" and my spouse is barely 5'. Its arrival in our home has created a new house rule: "You move your feet, you loose your seat". If someone gets up from the chair, someone else will instantly sit in it.

We look forward to many more purchases from your company!

Best,
D.G. & M.G.

Gary,

Our rocking chair arrived in perfect condition. It is amazingly comfortable for people of all sizes. I was studying it a bit and noticed that there are no straight pieces anywhere — everything is contoured, curved or rounded, which speaks to the amount of time you must spend shaping wood before assembly. And everyone comments on how soft to the touch the finish is. I was also surprised at how little it weighs, considering it is not a small chair. It looks heavy — but it's not. Cool!

We wish you all the satisfaction that comes with knowing you have made someone happy. We love it already — thanks!

I apologize for not writing sooner — it has been a bit of a whirlwind since we picked it up on Saturday. We only opened it last night. We thought we would try not to but we just couldn't resist taking it out of the crate. It is exquisite . . . I love how the grains match so beautifully. It is truly a work of art.

Of course, we could not resist sitting in it if only briefly and oh my, it is so comfortable. It holds the body just so . . . as if it were made to measure for each one who sits in it. No doubt our family will spend long hours daydreaming in that perfect chair. Indeed, I write stories for my grandchildren and I can already feel one coming on about the magic rocker that will take you anywhere your imagination can go; the magic rocker that fits every body just so. Imagine the adventures that will be had for generations in that perfect chair!

We haven't given the gift yet as we will present it to them on their wedding which is June 21, 2017. Honestly, we are tempted to keep it so it is a good thing the initials are on the chair as we can't hide the fact that it is actually for F.!! We do know that they will love it as much as we do and that it will become a family heirloom.

Oh and I should add that I did not end up having to pay duty. The very kind Canadian Border Officer asked me what was in the crate and I told her the truth. The perfect rocker, hand made in Texas and a wedding gift. She smiled and said have a nice day and a beautiful wedding. So despite a moment of confusion your perfect rocker is already creating good relations!

Many, many thanks
B. & family

Becca,

The chair arrived today and it is beautiful and comfortable. The stool is also great.
Gary did a great job picking out the walnut. It is more beautiful than I imagined and it matches perfectly.
You have also been very nice and helpful and I would like Gary to give you a hug from me and I'd also like you to give him a hug from me.
The driver who delivered it from MainFreight was very helpful and very nice so everything went very smoothly.
I look forward to relaxing comfortably in my new rocking chair. Oh, I am 6'3" and A. is 5'2" and it seems to fit both of us.

Thanks again for everything.

We love it. It is handsome, and more importantly, it's comfortable for each of us. Good work! Artful and magically ergonomic.

Gary,

The rocker does pull you in. It seductively says give me a try. Have a seat. And when you do, you're in no hurry to get up.

Gary — I started life as an architect. So I did the whole design thing through school. My sophomore year we had to design and make furniture. I chose chairs and my prof said I was crazy. Well there were 4 chairs over the course of two semesters. One looked good but killed you when you sat in it. Two were just ok and the fourth was a winner. Chair design is very difficult and having given it a try I know how hard it is. Your rocker is a masterpiece. It seems to be body agnostic, that is, it doesn't matter how tall or wide you are, it is comfortable. Add to that great aesthetics and marvelous craftsmanship and it is a piece that is fought over in an estate settlement.

Before we're done, everyone in the family will be a proud owner of a Gary Weeks rocker.

Enjoy your weekend.

Gary,

My rocking chair arrived today and I love it! The design and wood are beautiful but the best thing is how it feels to sit in it! My husband is taller than me and the chair fits him as well.

Thank you for my wonderful chair!

Kind regards,

Hi Gary,

We received the maple rocking chair two days ago. It's very well made, and fits both me (5'2") and my husband (5'8") well. It looks and feels better than we expected.

The entire chair is very smooth to touch. The wood grain is really nice, and the finish has an interesting shimmering 3-D effect. My husband was expecting a really light color, like the mass-produced plain maple furniture. He was pleasantly surprised that your hand-rubbed oil finish has darkened the maple and the result is just the right color for us.

Overall, we are quite happy with your rocking chair. We'd highly recommend you to other people in the future.

Best,
F. & J.
