The signature 1920's design is roomy and comfortable. But don't let the traditional styling fool you. When it comes to relieving today's stress, it is state-of-the-art. The back posts and back rails are steam bent providing the right amount of support at spinal pressure points due to curving around the shoulders and at the lower back. The cane seat and back offer firm yet natural spring. Set low for comfortable elbow support, it has wide armrests for perfect balance. Also, the arm rests are lower than similar rockers, allowing the sitter´s arm to relax naturally at the sides of the body. Elegant turned posts and cane accents make a presidential statement in any setting.

Kennedy resin rockers are also made with a hardwood frame and styled the same way except that the cane seat and back are replaced with woven resin to produce a more durable product for outdoor covered porch use. The resin can be cleaned with mild soap and water.

The P & P Chair Company rocker was first recommended by physician Janet Travell in 1955 to John F. Kennedy when he was a young senator from Massachusetts. He was suffering from lingering back problems from a war injury. She prescribed swimming and the use of a rocking chair as therapy to ease his pain. She believed that a rocking chair relieved tension in the lower back by keeping the muscles moving, contracting and relaxing. Kennedy bought his sturdy Appalachian oak rocker from P & P Chair Company.

As President he so loved the rocker that his aides would bring it on Air Force One when he traveled around the country and the world. He bought additional rockers for Camp David and the Kennedy estates in Palm Beach, Florida and Hyannis Port, Massachusetts. Kennedy also gave dozens of the chairs as gifts to friends and heads of state. It has been reported that a successful bidder at the recent Sotheby's auction of Kennedy family memorabilia paid $442,500 for one of JFK's rocking chairs. Only P & P Chair Company guarantees lineage to the original Presidential Rockers with a registered trademark stamped underneath the rocker arm of each chair, and an authentic identifying hang tag. The chair is set low for comfortable elbow support and has wide armrests for perfect balance. The seat and back offer firmness and natural spring through the use of tightly woven Malaysian rattan. The rich warm brown color would be a beautiful accent to any home.
