Brian Boggs Chairmakers: wooden rocking chair experts

Rocking chairs are as quintessentially American as apple pie or baseball. Enjoyed by all ages - from the newborn being rocked to the retiree resting on their porch. They represent the perfect marriage of form and function, and are an excellent choice when investing in heirloom-quality furniture.

For the highest quality rocking chair, Brian Boggs Chairmakers is the perfect company to work with. Brian Boggs is an internationally acclaimed furniture designer; he has perfected three different rocking chair designs over his 30+ year career as a fine woodworker. Our company is based in Asheville, North Carolina, a beautiful area of the country with a rich furniture tradition. We use local and sustainably harvested wood, and handcraft each piece using time-honored methods for a lifetime of enjoyment. We build everything to order, so you can take pride in the fact that your chair was built especially for you.

Classic Ladderback Rocking Chair

This wooden rocking chair is rooted in some of Brian's earliest work, influenced by classic woodworking designs and techniques and made timeless by his improvements.

It has evolved over decades, with subtle details and improvements coming along every time Brian thought of a new way to make it more elegant and comfortable.

For example, the arms angle in the front to match the sitter's knuckles. The jewel-like drawknife cuts underneath are irresistible to feel. The curved back slats cradle the whole length of your back.

They are our favorite chairs because they are so incredibly comfortable, as is (no cushions)! The height is perfect, the lumbar support is 'just right', and they have a good balance when rocking.

The more we heard Brian talk about his process - how he used steam and pressure to mold the shape of the wood, how the parts were connected without nails - the more we knew a pair of Brian's rocking chairs were meant for us.
