Object of Desire: A Folding Canvas Rocking Chair from Japan

August 9, 2019

To be filed under “modern classics.” From Japan, a folding canvas rocking chair remains as covetable as in 1958, when designer Takashi Nii created it. A permanent resident of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, it also deserves a spot on any porch or patio:

The Ny Rocking Chair has a steel frame and handles of solid beechwood; currently old out at Spartan Shop, it is also available for $720 from Canoe.
