Franklin combines a historic design with modern styling to generate an heirloom quality rocking chair Perfectly arced rockers, a sculpted seat, strong uprights and broad arms ensure years of pleasure in what has become a front porch staple
A handsome heavyweight, the Franklin rocking chair from Oxford Garden Designs will provide years of comfortable seating. With its gently curved seat and seatback, the chair cradles the sitter and is reassuringly supportive. Its also generous in its dimensions, with a wide seat, ample armrests, and a notably high seatback. Crafted from shorea wood, a weighty, teak-like semihardwood from Indonesia, the chair is highly resistant to rot and the elements. It also ages well, weathering to a soft, warm gray or maintaining its original color with periodic applications of teak oil. Like other Oxford Garden Designs pieces, the rocker is constructed with sturdy mortise and tenon joinery. The density and weight of the wood add to the stability of the construction. The chair measures 27 by 32 by 43-3/4 inches and requires basic assembly. Oxford Garden's pre-assembly steps simplify the process. --Emily Bedard

Clarification: Smith and Hawken has gone through a number of corporate owners since the founders sold it. The Smith and Hawken teak furniture I reference above was purchased from the original company. Current owner of the brand is Target. I have no knowledge of the quality of what they market under the Smith and Hawken brand.
Secondly, some of the pieces were labled wrong. The seat had a sticker on it (Back) that was clearly in the front by the illustration--and the only way it would fit together. The major assembly is by Tenon and dowels, which is fine, but impossible to take apart to replace or re-asseble (see next point).
Finally, one of the pre-assembled joints was poor and I had to use glue to keep it together. All-in all, I don't recommend this product.
