Rokur, Wood Rocking Chair by PurposeInc

View all 2 Photos

Who doesn’t love a good rocking chair? Rokur strips down the ornate, stuffy rocker to a minimalistic, boxier design. The wooden frame is a no-fuss solution that honors functionality over frivolity. The profile of the chair tells all through but a few easy strokes: two planes for the seat and back, and a rounded trapezoid for the rocking mechanism. Designed by PurposeInc, which specializes in furniture and housewares from its base in Salt Lake City, Rokur is modest in its look but fails not in reminding us of the simple pleasures in life. $ 2,150 buy here.
