My name is Jim Annis, and I am the owner of Your Family Rocking Chair. In my corporate life as a CEO, one of my underlying goals has always been to create a legacy. Now, I am building a legacy for my family -and yours – based on our common values.

As a family, we, the rocking chair makers have an enormous amount of respect and reverence for the past. Each room in our house has an heirloom that is cherished. Each piece represents our family story and allows connections to our past. It guarantees continuity of that lore into the future. That comforts me as I am getting a few more grey hairs. What do you want for your family? Our handiwork is not a mass-produced chair just sitting alone and ignored in your residence or vacation home. If that is what you are looking for, we are not a good fit.

These rocking chairs are made and nurtured lovingly by professional rocking chair makers, one at a time, and much like a person.

These rocking chairs are personalized, as the underside of the seat can be engraved with a person’s name, an event (Born, Married, Retired, etc.) and a date. We can even engrave a company logo or a state logo OR a family crest, to advance the heirloom quality of this chair for generations to come.

These rocking chairs come with a Book of Provenance which includes an embossed Certificate of Authenticity, pictures of the customs building of the chair and maintenance information.

We trust that this chair will become part of your family – Your Family Rocking Chair
