Your front porch is typically the first thing your guests see when they arrive at your home, and it’s one of the most fun spaces to decorate with furniture, home decor, and holiday decorations. Like many of you, I love sprucing up my front porch every season, especially in time for summer! As a Californian, I’ve always been fond of the Southern tradition of having rocking chairs on one’s front porch! This season I’m head over heels in love with outdoor modern rocking chairs. They are classy, chic, and on trend for the season! 

Outdoor modern rocking chairs come in a wide array of styles and colors. I can’t get enough of square back Adirondack rockers, and square arm wicker rocking chairs to name a few. They’re perfect for relaxing after work with a good book or visiting with your neighbor over a glass of iced tea! I have a rocker on my dock, which is my favorite spot to relax with my dog on a Sunday afternoon!

If you are searching for outdoor modern furniture you’ll love for your front porch, back patio, or garden, you’re in luck! Today I’m excited to share 20 of the best outdoor modern rocking chairs you will love in a variety of styles, colors, top trends, and price ranges!
