Everybody can agree that smooth motion is critical to a good outdoor rocking chair, but the other features one might look for depends on where you live and how you like to enjoy being outside. That's why we included a couple of options that are easy to pick up and move around, like the GCI Freestyle and the Best Choice Products SKY1867, both of which are lightweight and fold up compactly, so you can drag them from the front of the house to the back as the sun moves.
Those looking for a more traditional, sturdy piece, not unlike the one grandpa used to sit in, will appreciate the Trex Yacht Club TXR100CB, which is made from recycled milk jugs with stainless steel hardware and built to last a lifetime, or the quaint Great Deal Furniture 304055 Estelle. We looked for materials that would be easy to maintain too, which is why we liked the plastic Semco SEMW. It shouldn't pick up stains and is easy to just rinse off when it does get dirty. Also, the Outdoor Interiors 21095RCG features resin wicker, which withstands the elements nicely.
