Gene, This chair is killer! I am just seeing this for the first time. When I first saw the post I thought wow what a great “modern” take on a classic. Then when I read on that this chair actually predates the Adirondack chair I thought even better! The lines on this chair are so simple, minimal and strong from any angle that it make the Adirondack chair seem almost ornate. It kind of reminds me of another famous chair Gerrit Rietveld’s Red, Blue & Chair from 1923.
You are not just looking at the high back. Adirondack chairs can also come with extensions for your feet to rest on. .
In his own book, Daniel Mack, the chairmaker, suggests a kinship between the Westport chair and forerunners that include reclining patient chairs of the early 19th century as well as the slant-backed Morris chair that inspired Craftsman furniture maker Gustav Stickley. But he singles out the cure chair as a pivotal development. Were it not for tuberculosis, he writes, “It’s unlikely that there would have been an Adirondack chair.”
As for dimensions, can we just say this chair is huge and considerably easy to move around too. But I’ll fill you in on the important size measurements. Between the arms you get a generous 23 inches of space and for the actually seat its an extra wide and roomy 25″.
Plastic Adirondack chairs will never need to be stained or waterproofed. However, they will need to be cleaned periodically. Be sure to avoid harsh solvents and abrasives that could scratch or harm the integrity of the plastic.

The best material is high-density polyethylene (HDPE) lumber. Despite its high cost, it is water-resistant and easy to clean by simply wiping it down with soap and a cloth. This material is a synthetic resin that is made to last long but isn’t bulky and heavy. It’s medium weight, making it portable. The material comes from recycled milk jugs, which is sustainable to manufacture.
The Highwood AD-KING1-ACE is our top choice for Adirondack chairs because it checks all the boxes. The most significant advantage that Highwood has over others is its remarkable high-grade polyethylene lumber material. Polyethylene lumber is designed to look like luxurious wood, but molded like plastic for comfort. This particular chair even can adjust your reclining angle, which the others cannot do.
These chairs were made from treated lumber so expect these to last for a long time. These were painted a reddish=brown hue with paint with weatherproofing features. You don’t need to take these indoors in case of rain or extreme heat because these will stay beautiful outdoors.

The seat is not too slanted at the back which makes this design a bit stiff. But nevertheless, it is an economical way to build an Adirondack for your patio or backyard.

I don t believe in an antique piece being made available only to a certain gender because its beauty is timeless and can be enjoyed by just about anybody. I personally would want that as my workdesk which can also double up as a TV console once I am done with work.
