1970s Bentwood Rocking Chair

A common way to make rocking chairs, or other light furniture, is through a process called “bentwood”. This process involves wetting the wood (either by soaking or by steaming), bending it, and then letting it harden into curved shapes and patterns.

This 1970s rocking chair is a beautiful example of bentwood.
