For the equestrian style iconoclast: Interpretations of the modern rocking horse are a distinct new breed, and their defining characteristic seems to be all rock, no horse.
Combing the old with the new, the Giddyup Rocking Stool from New Zealand’s designtree was inspired by the worn, storied leather of the vintage jumping saddles which rest atop their sleek Gaboon rocking base. Sold with or without the saddle, you could easily supply your own. ($940)
Los Angeles-based Kalon Studios, on the other hand, goes ultra modern with the “Hut Hut” (named for the camel-riding equivalent of a ‘cluck’), an intricately machine-cut, saddle-style rocker available in sustainable Bamboo, Black Locust, Black Walnut, Cork, and Maple. ($1,595)
