The Ripponlea Rocker was designed with generous proportions, displaying a huge seat size, very wide armrests, high backrest and extremely thick and squashy cushions. It makes references to Arts and Crafts and Missions styles, however is highly contemporary. Unique to the Ripponlea Rocker are two easily accessible drawers located under the seat, ideal for baby's bottles and blankets, or maybe the newspaper or a favourite magazine.
It is important that rocking chairs fit the size of the user, so each chair is custom made to suit the physical proportions of the client. All frame joinery is traditional mortice and tenon, reinforced with pins. Drawers are constructed with traditional dovetails. Timbers are recycled Australian hardwoods, upholstery is high quality leather.
The Ripponlea Rocker is intended to stay in the family for hundreds of years. In time the chair will become a symbol of the family's experiences, a vessel that will contain memories of children's upbringing, and their children and their children. It will become a trusted friend, visited when in need of comfort and security, or maybe for just a bit of a snooze.
