The Keinu Rocker isn't the only chair that updates the classic rocking chair, but it is probably one of the most modern in its use of materials in addition to updating the design to some degree. The Mod Rocker, on the other hand, uses a traditional material with an entirely new design. It is also kid-sized. The rocker is wide and low, made of bent plywood - from sustainably grown forests - with a maple veneer. It won Honorable Mention in 2006 I.D. Magazine's Annual Design Review and measures 16.25w x 22.25d x 18.75"h. Price: $320.
