"ROCKING CHAIRS" Cuba Local Custom Tip by swesn

  Rocking chairs - very popular furniture in Cuba
by swesn

Did rocking chairs come from Cuba? They seem to be very, very common here in Cuba.

From Havana to Vinales to Trinidad to Cienfuegos, I had peeped into many, many houses and spotted on many, many front porches, numerous rocking chairs.

Sometimes, the entire suite of furniture inside the house consist only of rocking chairs. Some are the wooden sort and others have metal frames with the plastic threads strung around the frames.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
