    It’s “Jaime” (Spanish), not “Jamie” (English). Please feel free to edit the post and not publish this comment.

    isn’t the point of a rocking chair so you can lean back comfortably while you rock back and forth? I don’t see how you could do that with this.

    That’s not furniture. It can’t be… can it? A porn movie set prop maybe. Furniture? No way.

    @caldrax…i agree…how the hell are you supposed to sit in this thing? i see a saddle, which implies along the Y axis, which would work for front to back rocking…although i guess you could sit along the Z axis also, and rock side-to-side, which is unconventiontional, but not wholly without merit…the real problem is, unless this monstrosity is like six feet tall, it’s way too short to sit on comfortably.

    Am I the only one who sees that crutch/stand thing and instantly thinks Salvador Dali?
