Splurge for the real thing! The original 1948 Eames® Molded Plastic Rocker - RAR (rocking armchair r-wire base) was brought back to life in 1994 and is available in 10 colors for $479 @ DWR.Com

I was trying to keep it under $200 for the saves but since this cutie is w/free shipping, I would still consider this to be a budget friendly rocker.
