However, many people prefer the effortless, horizontal, floating motion of the more modern nursery glider chair.

The nursery glider chair has a flat, strong base, which sits firmly on the floor. Wooden arms, underneath the seat, pivot front to back on steel ball bearings, resulting in a smooth, noiseless, horizontal "floating" motion.
