I have my parents vintage Boston rocker. I love it!
I have a new rocker my sweet hubs bought for me and there is no comparison as far as comfort goes. The old one contours to the body so much better. Insert "they don't make 'em like they used to" here.
Next, I needed to order a cushion set for it. I hopped on old faithful JCP site and found a set with just the color I was looking for. "Original" price stated 80 bucks but they were having a 40% of "sale." So I ordered the set.
Well, the tufted cushions (especially the seat cushion) were so sparsely stuffed. It didn't feel cushiony at all. I hoped it would feel like I was sitting on a cloud. Instead it felt like I was sitting a sparsely stuffed cushion. What's even more frustrating the stock photos and the customer photos from a few years back looked fully stuffed. Insert "They don't make 'em like they used to" here.
Oh well, I'm going to keep them anyway.
I guess the longer you've been on the planet, the more you complain about the way things used to be.
I totally get that now.
