J. Rusten Studio-Crafted Sculptural Modern Rocking Chair in Maple and Cherry

$9,800per item


When we set out to design the modern rocking chair we followed a series of directives: it must be extremely comfortable with no upholstery. It must have a high enough back to allow a tall person to rest their head, it must have a sense of visual delicacy but be strong enough to endure generations of use, and it must be a simple, modern, and original design that departs from the traditional rocking chair form. And, from the feedback we’ve received from the hundreds who’ve sat in this chair, we're proud to have hit the mark. A rocking chair is such a dynamic and vital piece for the home. A baby soothed by its motion can find themselves decades later rocking their own children and then grandchildren in the same chair. We're gratified to offer pieces that have a place in the most intimate moments of our lives.

Customization Options

Frame available in natural maple or bleached maple. Seat slats available in walnut, cherry, Claro walnut, white oak, ebonized oak. Screws available in brass, stainless steel, or blackened patina on brass.

About The Maker

J. Rusten Furniture Studio was founded in 2002 by Jared Rusten to create compelling and enduring objects that awaken public and private space. The studio engages tradition’s best practices while pushing the craft of woodworking forward. Natural materials are elevated by composing them into simple, modern forms. Finishes are engineered to get better with age and communicate a sublime warmth and presence only possible with small scale production . Often, Jared and his team source rare and unique California hardwood species like Claro Walnut and Bay Laurel milled from fallen or displaced trees. 
 ..... Adding its own vocabulary to the language of design, the studio has produced hundreds of original pieces of furniture for residences and commercial clients like Google, Vans, Github, and Levi’s, exhibiting work at numerous venues including the Harvard Graduate School of Design, S.F. Museum of Craft and Design, International Contemporary Furniture Fair, Pasadena Contemporary Art Museum, and has been featured in many print/digital publications like The New York Times, and Sunset Magazine ..... In 2016, the studio moved to Stockton, CA where Jared and his wife, Emily purchased a 100-year-old warehouse in the historic downtown. The ample space, proximity to fabricators, suppliers, and Stockton’s transportation nexus have allowed the studio to thrive with new designs and to better serve clients in California and beyond.
