Lean back into this shapely, handcrafted rocking chair built with a solid hardwood frame and racked back that promises a smooth 1950s feel.
Imagine the hundreds of memories that will be made in the warm embrace of the Paley rocking chair. An icon of comfort rendered in a vision of beautifully hand carved wood. Give it pride of place in your home and watch life revolve around it.

Smooth Operator

The iconic rocking chair gets a chic Mid-century makeover in the Collins. The narrow, carefully crafted hardwood frame delivers exceptional stability, while the generously padded cushions provide a memorable seat with support and a tailored look. We predict that it will attract quite a following from family members of all sizes.

In the Sway

The standard comforts of a rocking chair are anything but standard in the Paley. The gracefully curved wooden runners offer smooth rocking and the padded cushions deliver dreamy support. Embodying contemporary style, a taste for simplicity and a nostalgic American sensibility, Paley is the chair you wish you could place in every room.

  • Mark F
    Great chair(s). Excellent customer service.
    We spooled up two chairs for our living room. So many tempting choices. Very happy with our picks. The delivery service was excellent, too. Happy customers in Austin.
  • Fahad S
    Favorite chair in the house
    It's a little bigger than we were expecting for our small living room, but we ended up liking it so much we kept it anyway. The cushions are firm and the wood feels solid and comforting. It took about 5-6 months to receive it after we made the initial order, a frustrating amount of time to wait, but once it ... 
  • Kara B
    Beautiful Chair
    I am very happy with my Paley rocking chair. I was nervous about ordering from a small online company but I am so glad I did. The chair couldn't be of better quality. The wood is thick, beautiful, smoothly joined, and perfectly finished. The cushions are very thick and comfortable and the fabric is flawless and perfectly sewn. This chair ... 
  • HMS
    Just right
    We love the look and comfort of this rocking chair. It's perfect for reading by the fire, trying to reason with the dog, and whittlin'. (We haven't really tried whittling yet.)

    Lovely Piece of Furniture
    Great rocking chair, looks beautiful. However if you are in a time crunch this is not the piece of furniture for you (it took almost 3 months to receive). That said it is beautiful!
  • MaryKay H
    Great style but not a lot of rock on carpet
    This chair is really sweet with great style, and I love the Cordova Eclipse fabric. The fabric is clearly durable, but doesn't come off as "durable." Know what I mean? The only reason for 4 stars is the rock-a-bility is a bit shallow. Would probably rock a bit more on a wood floor, and if half stars were an option, ... 
  • Josh M
    Very dark walnut
    First, this product took 1 month longer to be delivered than Joybird estimated. Their online customer service was awful. Second, I have several solid walnut pieces of furniture in my house. The color of the walnut from Joybird is MUCH darker. Their are no golden or red tones in it at all. Its a deep ... 
  • Amanda B
    Beautiful, sturdy rocking chair
    This chair is beautifully constructed, and I love the Cordova Eclipse fabric. The mixture of colors has depth without being too busy. The cushions are very firm, but I expect they will get broken in over time. I love the detail on the back of the chair, since I have an open floor plan and the back ... 
  • John S
    Pleased as Punch
    Both this rocker and Collins chair just arrived. Quality upholstery and woodwork. Will not hesitate using Joybird again.
  • Jennye G
    Good chair, but not quite the Cracker Barrel rock
    Solidly made, but a little larger than what I was looking for in my tiny house (yes, the dimensions are posted, but's it's hard to precisely map out the way a rocker will look). Also, you know how a truly great rocking chair will just go all the back and forward with very little effort, no flat spots, and you ... 
  • Ann A
    Stunningly beautiful and comfortable
    We love our Paley Rocking chair. The warm walnut wood and oh so comfortable design just can't be beat. Joybird, where have you been all of our lives?
  • Ardina G
    Very slow production (two months late) but beautiful product.
