Every nursery needs the basics: a crib, a changing table, storage, and a great chair. But some parents may bypass fancy contemporary chairs in favor of a rocker similar to Grandma’s old-fashioned one.
The weeks rocking chair is the signature piece of Gary Weeks & Co. Furnituremakers of Wimberley, Texas. The chairs are touted for nurseries because the seat is generous and scooped deeply to relieve pressure from hip bones; the slats support the lumbar and relieve lower back muscles; and the motion is balanced and effortless. The chairs are available in five wood finishes, with prices ranging from $1,600 to $1,700.
