Fun Replacement Cushions

Early Replacement Cushions For Glider Rocker patents described different mechanisms for glider chairs, such as rails and four-bar linkages supported by springs.[2] Patents using a swinging seat suspended from a four-bar linkage appeared in 1939, and this is now the general configuration used by most glider chairs.

In the southern United States, porch gliders were referred to as divans.

Especially popular was the "basket weave" pattern in the hot non- air conditioned South of the 1950s and 1960s.
