Tennessee-based Brooks sells glider-rockers that are old school—traditional chairs feature basic fabrics and exposed wood. Prices run $300 to $800 for the glider rockers, while the ottomans are $180-$400. One plus: all 75 Brooks fabrics are available on any style chair (over 15 styles and ten finishes). Brooks chairs feature solid base panels (Dutailier has an open base), which the company touts as safer. An example of Brooks’ traditional style is the Philippa Bark Heritage Cherry Sleigh glider/rocker (pictured) for $425.
While we liked Brooks’ quality, one baby storeowner told us he found the company very disorganized with poor customer service. Rating: B
