serious rocker

ok, i have been seeing this nursery everywhere. i saw it about a week ago thru walls, a site that arica was looking at, and fell in love. then on friday katie posted it and i found its original (i think) source. gorgeous.

k so obviously i love the colors and the grasscloth. totally diggin that retro/modern vibe. but what i'm surprised about is how no one has mentioned how amazing this rocking chair is!! it's a modern take off a classic bentwood rocker design by thonet. but in metal. i am in love.
now when i think about nursery design (which i do a lot these days, in case you couldn't tell...) i tend to lean towards a big, comfy chair for nursing, cuddling, and reading stories. but chris will have none of that. he's a complete traditionalist in the sense that his dad rocked him to sleep in a rocking chair and he wants to be able to have the same kind of rocka-rock time with his son in a rocking chair. gliders won't cut it.

this is my compromise. i love this chair. it is classic and beautiful, a little retro, and very cool. and i'm pretty sure i need one. anyone who can tell me where to get one will be my new best friend.
