Rock Away the Dog Days of Summer

The Brumby Chair Logo 2016

To most people, especially here in the South, the “dog days of summer” refers to the hottest and most humid days of the year when our furry friends tend to be a bit lazier, and life’s hectic pace slows down, just before the return of school days, football and cooler autumn temps.  This definition is accurate; however, the true origin of the phrase comes from the Greeks and Romans who referred to the “dog days” as the time when the dog star Sirius appeared to rise just before the sun, during the hottest months of the year.

No matter why we call them the “dog days of summer” and because of the extreme heat and humidity at this time of year, especially in the Brumby Chair Company’s hometown of Marietta, Georgia, these days of late summer are a time to slow down, relax and reset.  So, during these next few weeks, be sure to find your favorite Brumby Rocker and enjoy some downtime!


The Brumby Chair Company has hand-crafted its luxury rocking chairs to the same specifications as its originally designed 19th century models, since 1875 in Marietta, Georgia.  Unequaled in craftsmanship, quality, comfort and durability, Brumby® Rockers are more than just a rocker.  They are classic American legacy pieces built to withstand time and be passed from generation to generation.
