Add heart to your home!
Remember what it meant when Grandma held you in her arms in her rocking chair?
The heart of a home is caring relationships. Your furniture can invite people to sit down and spend precious moments with one another. Create memories and traditions around a sunny window view, holidays, bedtime stories, and a flickering fire in the fireplace.

Rockers and Gliders
What is the difference between gliders and rockers?
The motion is different. You can imitate the motion with your body. The feel of a rocking chair is like that of bending your body at the hips. Move your upper body forward and back while you bend at the hips.
The motion of a glider feels like the motion of moving your upper body forward and back while bending slightly at the knees. It lacks any up and down movement, but flows forward and back, and so is slightly smoother. When it comes to shipping furniture, a glider is a little bit heavier.
A swivel glider adds the ability to turn the chair while sitting in it. This feature enables a person to turn in order to visit, watch TV, see something, or adjust the chair to lighting conditions.

Directions for putting rockers on your new Rocking Chair
When your rocking chair or glider arrives you need only a screwdriver to attach the rocker to the chair. Take off the protective cover and use the enclosed screws to attach the rockers to the chair.
Directions for attaching a glider to your new Glider
Follow two easy steps to attach the glider to your rocking chair. You need only a screwdriver. First, there are two black iron pieces on the left and right underside of the chair. Find the bolt that holds the wood bar to the black iron fitting. Remove one bolt from the right side both on the front and back of the glider chair. This will detach the iron fitting. Second, lay the chair down on its right side. On the glider piece, take the bar marked "front" and attach it to the front of the rocker, slipping it into the holes provided. Insert the bolt and tighten the nut. Repeat this step for the bar marked "back."
