Perhaps you already own a rocking chair and then, unfortunately, you may have to relocate into a property that is smaller with more confined spaces. Or maybe you’re a fan of tiny houses (an option that is becoming more popular due to traditional house prices escalation).

It could be that you have a newborn in your house and want a comfortable small rocker for your nursery that you can spend time bonding with your child in.

Whatever situation you find yourself in, here are some great chairs that are made specifically for those smaller spaces.
