For a traditional outdoor rocking chair that's easy to care for and able to endure years of use, select a POLYWOOD® resin Jefferson woven mahogany rocker with a tigerwood weave from Outdoor Furniture Plus. There are other frame style and weave combinations available, such as black frame with Cahaba weave and white frame with white loom weave. This material that looks like wood is actually an earth-friendly high-density polyethylene material made from post-consumer bottle waste or other HDPE industrial waste material. Unlike wood, it won't crack, chip or splinter, and it is rot resistant. It can also resist corrosive elements such as household chemicals and oils.
The above Jefferson Woven Rocker by POLYWOOD® is shown with a Mahogany Frame with a Seagrass weave.
This rocker is tested to handle weight up to 250 pounds. May hold more but not tested for more.
