Serene, here! And in the subtle words of Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider, “I WANNA ROCK”. And in the case of the Mimomito writers, it’s true. Last week Rose showed y’all her brand new beautiful addition to her family – er – home, an original Eames shell rocker with Modernica base. So with the recent acquisition of a knock-off Tapiovaara rocker, here are my boyfriend and my wave-makers.

The Tapiovaara knocker (see what I did there) needs to be glued, painted, sanded, oiled and a bunch o’ other things before extensive hours of sitting could commence. The Eames-wannabe in blue is a kids version that fits both Alan and my stature, but we’re still keeping our eyes open for an original fiberglass model. (They really are sturdier and more comfortable – I know, I took a good long sit in Rose’s.)

So readers, do any of you have a sweet love of Midcentury rocking chairs thumping in your heart and home? Let us know, and send us photos!
