The chair Bunnell patented had the same wide armrests, plank back and angled seat as Lee’s invention. But it also included a tufted cushion, a drop-down footrest and what appears to be accommodations for a bedpan. He described it as “a chair of the bungalow type adapted for use on porches, lawns, and at camps, and also adapted to be converted into an invalid’s chair.”
The backrests have five long and wide planks while the seat is wide and can even accommodate two people. The armrests are awkwardly large and wide but no matter, you can use these as a narrow table, one on each side. .
The seat height is also very impressive at 15 inches, considering it is an Adirondack chair where they normally sit much lower to the ground. In terms of strength and durability, this chair is constructed using Acacia wood. This wood is native to Australia and famous for its high resilience to weather and its load-bearing capacity. Giving this chair a total capacity of 350 LBS.
Before finishing up the chair, give in to the temptation to try it out! It’s a surprisingly comfortable chair, definitely not the seat to offer a difficult mother-in-law.

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.
