Saw these classics recently, and they struck me as sort of the classic southern porch rocker - maybe it was those knob posts, and maybe also the white paint that always complements the house. I don't know the brand name because they didn't have tags.
Also seems to me that black shutters and even the grey porch floor are also classic. Definitely part of the American look.
Black rockers also would work here - of course they would capture the shutters and rails at this house. And black rockers definitely seem popular - in fact, they may be almost as popular as white. But white is more likely to show stains and scratches I suppose (and the rust marks you see on the rocker in the foreground here, from where the screws attach the runners to the posts).
Personally I don't think the proportions are quite right here - although close. The posts look just a little skinny to me and the knobs stick out above the headrest just a little more prominently than I'd like - but all in all, I like this look.
Not sure about the woven wicker side table - a little froofy to go with handsome rockers like these. Just sayin'.

I really like the color scheme - white rockers matching white house, with black shutters and grey paint. It's amazing to me how common this exact combination gets used. It feels southern to me - I'm not sure if that's really true, but I feel like this look is widespread in the Carolinas and across the gulf coast also.

Holden loves rocking chairs and loves writing about them almost as much.
