The good thing with the extended types of Adirondack chairs is the extension where you can place your feet. This extension can enhance your comfort not only on the upper body but also down to your legs.
I should mention that a few people have reported that the chalky residue didn’t go away after they painted their chairs –– no good. Honestly, I can’t say why some work and some don’t — it may be the material made to make the chair??? My best advice is to try this with one chair and see how it turns out before proceeding with the rest so you don’t waste your time and money. .

A key part of that treatment involved prolonged exposure to the region’s cold, dry mountain air. “It’s one of the things you notice when you come to the Adirondacks,” notes Catania. “The air smells better, feels better.”
Adirondack chairs are classically made out of wood; however, that may not be the best material choice for the outdoors. Instead, today’s manufacturers craft the iconic look of Adirondack chairs in materials that are more Mother Nature friendly, such as poly-wood or teak. Our poly-wood collections are available in an abundance of bright colors to liven up any space, come in either classic or shellback, and they can be partnered with coordinating cushions for an even more inviting seating option.
From 1900-1903, Lee worked on making this new chair. In order to perfect it, he had his family members test out each prototype before moving on to the next. Eventually, Lee came up with what he considered the perfect chair: wide armrests, a high back, and a slanted seat (the seat and back were made from single pieces of wood).
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.
Hi Robin! I found the spray paint at Home Depot. Each color seems to come in a different finish though, so it can be tricky. Let me know if you have more questions.
You want all of your pieces to match as closely to the template as possible. And you may have cut a few pieces a little rough, or not exactly on the template so you will want to sand the edges smooth. To do this you can use a spindle sander. I admit that I started out clamping matching pieces together to attempt to sand them together. But I eventually gave up on that and sanded each piece one at a time, stopping periodically to compare them to one another. This is the oscillating spindle sander that I have HERE.

Thanks for sharing. People really do love these Adirondack chairs. They are in stock at my Costco in CA, but I’m sure they won’t last too long on the shelves. Glad you found them!
According to Elizabeth Lee, Thomas’s great- great-grandniece, “Uncle Tom” spent the years between 1900 and 1903 experimenting with different types of wood and various shapes, sizes and positioning before arriving at an angled chair with a comfort level unmatched by any other.

Blue is always a safe choice, because it is the most liked color. Some shades of blue, such as turquoise, promote cleanliness and calmness. Blue Adirondack chairs are also great poolside or in nautical-themed designs. Combining the stability of blue and the energy of red, purple gives off a luxurious effect.
Costco used to sell a 2 pack of Adirondack chairs with the ottomans. They’re not available on Costco.com anymore. I think you’re best bet is to check Amazon for ottomans because I’m not sure Costco will be getting new products like this since we’re in the middle of summer. Hope that helps. Good luck
