The Storkcraft family manufacture and distribute all kinds of kids’ goods and furniture, with the Tuscany Glider and Ottoman being their midrange entry into the glider market. It’s available at a midrange price point, meaning it has to outperform the budget options to be successful; but there’s no question that Storkcraft have taken steps to make this happen. The gliding mechanism is sturdy and well-made, featuring metal ball bearings for smooth and consistent gliding; and Storkcraft have even bundled in a lumbar pillow to support your back while you’re gliding. A generous 35” seat width and the presence of seat pockets for storing whatever you need close to hand all serve to increase the all-around usability and comfort offered by the Tuscany Glider and Ottoman. The set is available with a customizable appearance: the wood can be finished in white, cherry, espresso, black or gray, while the cushions can be upholstered in beige, blue, chocolate, sage or gray.
