Designed by Chan Wai Lim of Little Thoughts Group, these outdoor rocking animals were inspired by where the designer grew up. Wai Lim spent her childhood on a farm in Singapore playing with farm animals and objects handmade out of wood. Life in the 70s was much simpler then so she set out to share a bit of those memories through a trio of outdoor rocking chairs for children. Dubbed Icons of Sembawang, the animals will no doubt put smiles on the kids’ faces.

The rocking chairs are made of eco-friendly Heveatech wood, which is weather resistant, termite resistant, and extremely durable, so they’re perfect for outdoor use.

The designs are simple, capturing the essence of each of the animals. Each one is constructed a little differently resulting in varying patterns and color tones.

Little Thoughts Group worked with Samko Timber, an Indonesia-based wood company, to make it happen.
