Porch-loving Southerners couldn't be luckier when it comes to outdoor furniture. The selection online and in-store is more varied than ever before. But while stores offer outdoor loveseats that rival the looks of our living room sectional, we still seem to lean into the classics. Spend an afternoon in a rocking chair on the porch with a cold sweet tea in hand, and you'll understand what we mean. In the middle of a sticky Southern summer, you've got to make your own breeze; there's no better way to relax and cool down than with a little rock.

While we'll never take a dig at the traditional rocker Grandma settled into every evening, today's outdoor rocking chairs come in designs worth raising a glass of sweet tea for. There's something for every porch and patio aesthetic. Want to take things rustic? Try a fir wood rocker that can fit two and looks like it was made for log cabin living. Do you lean more to the modern side of things? Iron, wicker, and teak rocking chairs offer sleek lines that are anything but old-timey, and vintage-inspired metal rockers offer a retro twist. For those who can't get enough of a traditional look, the classic styles available now are even better than Grandma's.

Not sure where to start? We've got you covered as well as your screened in porch. From traditional outdoor rocking chairs to sleek new-age rockers, here are some of the most varied designs offered online.
