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.
What makes this such a comfortable chair is how it’s wider and taller than your average chair. It’s roughly 4 inches wider than the standard models and has a 6 inch higher back as well. It has some impressive measurements with it being 33 inches wide by 40 inches high, and an overall depth of 36-inches. .
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.
Much nicer, right? But it was like putting lipstick on a pig. Paint made them look pretty, but they were still wobbly and rickety. I think we got our money’s worth out of those crappy old Adirondack chairs and now its time for something a bit sturdier and better.
Our Furniture is made from recycled plastic and is an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional outdoor wood furniture.
I am wondering if you or anyone has made this with using 2×4 for the legs.

The Adirondack chair maintains a unique design from the 1900s. It includes joining pieces with precise curves and angles.
Oak: Durable and solid, oak is a popular wood for all types of furniture, and for good reason. It’s heavy, giving Adirondack chairs a solid feel, and it’s beautiful. The price is comparable to that of pine and cedar. However, maintenance is another matter. Direct sunlight can cause streaking or color changes. Oak chairs should be kept in the shade, and they will need a UV-protectant stain.
Occasional sealing, painting, and polishing are quintessential when using eucalyptus. Do this, and your Adirondack chairs could easily pass for some of those made from high-end hardwoods.
The recycled plastic material makes it water-resistant, and UV protected, which means it is easy to clean and won’t deteriorate. You wouldn’t have to deal with the cumbersome splintering, cracks, peels, or chips of a wooden chair. Fast and easy to assemble Nice vibrant color Solid and sturdy Don’t have to store away during winter Just wipe to clean Only able to fold if you disassemble the chair first Smaller than expected, not ideal for tall people Not as comfortable due to the straight back
Shorea: If aged wood in shades of gray and silver appeals to you, you need an Adirondack chair made of shorea. Some types of shorea start as light brown and slowly take on a soft gray if left unfinished. Shorea resists bugs and holds up well in tough weather conditions. Other wood: Less-common woods you may find include hemlock, acacia, and fir. Hemlock and acacia are hardwoods. Fir is a softwood that is occasionally used to make inexpensive Adirondack chairs. Polywood
These chairs are constructed to be resistant to the outdoor weather conditions which make them a common choice for lovers of the lawn settings.
As more and more outdoor furniture turns to imitation wood, it is nice to see a company that still makes Adirondack chairs out of solid hardwood. Nothing really beats the look and feel of real wood. Another benefit of Acacia wood is that it is a naturally gentle wood. So it is smooth to the touch and is rather scratch resistant. Making it a great outdoor chair for tall people. However, if you are heavy and wide, you may not find the 20-inch wide seat between the arms enough. So I suggest you read on and check out the next chair with a wider seat. Adirondack chairs are some of the most comfortable outdoor chairs you can get and this Highwood chair plays a crucial role for providing superior support for the tall person. There’s a number of reasons why this chair is good, but it’s the overall comfort and design that appeals most to me.
This makes getting in and out of the chair easy and not stressful. As opposed to taking low seat height chairs which can strain you and leave you worse off in terms of posture.
