Happy Lunar New Year! As we begin the year of the horse, we've been thinking about some of our favorite mid-century child horse rockers.
Kay Bojesen's iconic mid-century wooden rocker is playful and timeless. Originally designed in 1936, this piece is as relevant today as when it was created.
Eames' plywood animals and their modern reproductions still delight children. We love the original plywood horse from the late 1940s. While it never went into mass production like the popular elephant, it's unique charm captivates young and old.
The curving, organic lines of this red lacquered Nässjomöbel schauelpferd from the 1970's encourages imaginative play. The organic shape, firey color, and the almost industrial feel adds to the fun. Ride on!
Gloria Caranica's Creative Playthings rocker from the 1970's is one of our own, and one of our very favorite modern takes on the traditional rocking horse. Horses come in all shapes and sizes--who says you need a mane and tail to be one?
