Ilmari Tapiovaara mid-century Mademoiselle rocking chair

It's been reissued as a standard chair too, but we prefer the Ilmari Tapiovaara Mademoiselle rocking chair.

A Finnish design classic from 1956, the Mademoiselle catches the eyes most obviously from that hugely extended back, certain to offer plenty of support for eve the longest back. But once you're in it, you'll be more interested in the rockers on the bottom, perfect for kicking back on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

Made of solid birch and available in various colours, you can pick one up for 890 Euros.
