Roland Rainer Rocking Chair 1950s Danish Style Austrian Mid Century MCM Scandi

Roland Rainer Rocking Chair 1950s Danish Style Austrian Mid Century MCM Scandi

A stunning, elegant and very rare Mid Century designer rocking chair in lovely condition. Designed by Roland Rainer and made in Austria in the 1950s, this beautiful stick-back Windsor-style rocking chair has wonderful Mid Century Scandinavian Minimalist influences and will add timeless style and sophistication to any interior.


Beautifully designed and made from solid wood, this super-comfy rocking chair features a gorgeous broad A-frame-shaped back and a generously sized sculpted seat displaying lovely toning and grain, into which the arms and legs are affixed in the Windsor chair style.


It has wonderfully sleek double-tapering rounded arm supports, legs, back supports and double stretchers, with beautiful shapely curved arms, sleigh feet and rounded spindles. All finished in the original black paint, the beautiful juxtaposition between the central rich wood colouring and smart black-silhouetted extremities really catches the eye and sets this beautiful chair apart.


All in all this is a gorgeous, very comfortable and extremely rare rocking chair by a design master. Effortlessly timeless, it would enhance any interior with its superb quality, beautifully smart colouring and wonderfully sleek lines. 



This is in good-to-very-good condition. Structurally sound, there are no wobbles or loose joins and has only minor signs of wear to show it’s almost 70-year-age, including the to-be-expected minor marks and wear to the black paint and some flaking of the paint on the sleigh feet, which has been touched up to make it less noticeable in places. There are a few historic woodworm holes and the whole chair has been treated for good measure. Overall it’s a stunning and very rare rocking chair in lovely condition and if well looked after it should remain so for many more decades to come – please see the photos.
