We own two POÄNG rocking chairs
We own two POÄNG rocking chairs, but in our home we affectionately refer to them as Grandparent Rockers.
My folks gravitate to these chairs the minute they enter my place. They lounge on them, rock away on them (a glorious journey with no destination!), their laps empty and awaiting my children – their grandchildren – to pounce upon.
We have a red POÄNG with a black-brown frame. That is Grandpa’s chair. He likes the flamboyant colour juxtaposed with the sensible skeleton. It suits him – he and his pink ties, against his navy shirts.
Grandma’s jam is our black POÄNG with the birch veneer frame. She’s basic like that, and apologises to no one for it.
Our POÄNG chairs literally hold two generations of family. Is there a better chair around? We don’t think so.
I bought my first POÄNG armchair
I bought my first POÄNG armchair for breastfeeding my firstborn. Today, 15 years later, my mother still sits on the same POÄNG to watch her favourite drama series as she inevitably doses off in its comfort.
Poang was still our eventual choice for an armchair in the living room. Tucked at a cosy corner, everyone at home seeks out their share of time on it.
If it's not my son tapping his fingers on his smartphone on POÄNG, then it's another plugged onto his MP3 rocking gently to the beat of the music on POÄNG. It could also be my husband reading his newspaper on it. It is not unusual for to see my hubby dozed off on it.
Our POÄNG is hardly unoccupied. I hardly get to rest in it. It's time to consider a second buy, except this time, It'll be in the bedroom for my exclusive enjoyment!
