The sleek lines and iconic silhouette of Rapson’s original designs are apparent in each piece Rapson-Inc. produces. The chairs are proudly and responsibly made in the United States. The outdoor pieces are made of recycled plastic and the wooden pieces are responsibly sourced using American Black Walnut and Rock Maple. Rapson’s designs are very organic and natural, yet super modern and cool. 70 years after introducing these designs to the world, they are still sought after and revered as the pinnacle of Mid Century Modern Design.
Based on drawings first done by Ralph Rapson in 1939, the Rapson Rapid Rocker remains as comfortable as it is striking after 70 years. The strong maple-ply frame provides a smooth rock and the sculpted, cantilevered arms make the chair look like it is about to take flight. Your back and neck will appreciate the double-backed, foam-cushioned, form-fitting seat. Whether in the nursery, by the hearth, or in the living room, it's often called the most comfortable seat in the house.
