Adirondack Chairs: Some of the Most Comfortable Outdoor Chairs
Increasingly popular across the United States, Adirondack chairs are some of the most comfortable outdoor chairs out there. When Thomas Lee first invented the first Adirondack chair, the Westport chair, in the early 1900s, he had no way of knowing that his invention would be passed down for over a century! He simply wanted a comfortable chair that could withstand the rugged Adirondack terrain.
Now, what we consider the typical Adirondack chair these days is slightly different from the Westport chair. Over the years, the design was tweaked and adjusted to what we have now. However, the sturdy, low seat, high, slanted back, and wide armrests have stayed the same.
Since then, the comfort and relaxation Adirondack chairs offer has made them widely popular across the United States and even beyond.
So, what makes Adirondack chairs so special?
Not only are the chairs sturdy and durable, but their timeless style can also enhance any backyard. Furthermore, designers agree that the Adirondack chairs’ contoured design makes them one of the most comfortable choices for outdoor seating, above other types of lawn chairs.
Adirondack chairs are a blend of all things that are important for many homeowners: style, function, and comfort. Just looking at an Adirondack chair summons images of relaxation, whether that’s out camping, spending time by the lake or ocean, or just in your backyard around a firepit or by the pool.
Why are some Adirondack chairs more expensive than others?
The price point for Adirondack chairs depends on the quality of the product. For example, some of the more inexpensive plastic Adirondack chairs are lightweight and low maintenance. However, the material quality may be lacking, and as a result, they will need to be replaced more often. Higher quality products, such as wood or poly lumber chairs, will cost more upfront, but will offer comfort for years.
Real wood chairs are incredibly popular for Adirondack chairs, since that was the original design after all. Wood offers a level of nostalgia that many buyers look for while searching for the right outdoor furniture. With the recent upsurgence of outdoor gatherings, the comfort that comes with the look and feel of real wood cannot be understated.
However, real wood furniture has its cons. Depending on what kind of wood is used, you run the risk of your furniture cracking, peeling, or rotting if left outdoors year-round. Poly lumber is a great option for those who want to keep their furniture looking great year-round, but don’t want to sacrifice the comfort of real wood.
PolyTEAK Poly Lumber is specifically formulated to simulate not only the look, but also the feel of authentic wood furniture.
Making your Adirondack chairs even more comfortable
With their contoured and slanted seat, Adirondack chairs are already some of the most comfortable outdoor chairs. However, to make them even more comfortable, you can add throw pillows or cushions for maximum relaxation. These chairs were made to relax in, no matter your location. And, most importantly, Adirondack styles (and accessories) vary so you can fit your own unique style!
In conclusion, Adirondack chairs are certainly a great choice for your backyard, patio, porch, deck, or any other outdoor living area. Depending on your price point and what you’re looking for in terms of maintenance, you could buy a chair that lasts for years and years. And above all, Adirondack chairs, especially made with real wood or realistic poly lumber, can offer a level of comfort unlike any other outdoor chair.
