New Gloucester Rocker

New Gloucester Rocker

$1,995.00 - $2,400.00 $1,696.00 - $2,040.00

Inspired by the aesthetic appeal of the Salem rocker that originated in New England circa 1840, Tom started with an adapted form of the deep, comfortable rocker seat, added his own spindle and arm design to create his first prototype, and kept refining from there. The result is a thoughtful integration of ash and cherry or walnut with simple lines, and meticulous use of traditional mortise-and-tenon joinery.

Anatomy of the New Gloucester Rocker

The Rockers

The rockers are gently sculpted to form sweeping curves.

Legs and Spindles

Vertical components of the rocker are made of ash – a durable wood that is immovable in larger cuts – as in the turned legs – and firmly flexible when slimmed to form the tensioned spindles that support the arms and crest. The spindles are tensioned as they enter both the crest and rails, helping to secure its form and allow a measure of “give”

The Seat, Arms, and Crest

The seat is carved from North American hardwoods and contoured for comfort; and both arms and back crest show the versatility and visual appeal of wood’s natural grain.

It’s All In the Details

One of our long-time customer favorites, the New Gloucester Rocker is a Tom Moser design that first came to market in 1984, and is named for the rural Maine town that was home to our first workshop. This rocker showcases our commitment to creating heirloom-quality furniture. Its joinery and engineering are carefully executed to ensure generations of use. This is a rocker that will live with a family for lifetimes.
