Glider and ottoman sets are popular with new parents — they’re a comfortable way to rock an infant to sleep — but they can be a welcome furniture addition for all households. Gliders are the modern version of the rocking chair, but instead of moving in an arcing motion, gliders move back and forth. This makes them move smoother and also prevents any little fingers or toes from getting stuck underneath. A wide variety of styles, colors, and upholstery are available in glider and ottoman sets. Some offer extra features like pockets, extra lower back support, swivel capabilities, and different locking positions. The ottomans typically have the same upholstery as the glider and also glide back and forth.
