The first one to make an Adirondack chair was an American named Thomas Lee. He made his chair as he was vacationing in Westport, New York in the Adirondack Mountains in 1903. Called “Westport Plank Chair” Lee offered the design to Harry Bunnell who was a carpenter. Bunnell saw the possibility of commercializing the design and got a patent for it in 1905 without asking Lee’s permission. Bunnell manufactured the “Westport chairs” for the next two decades. The chairs were painted green or medium dark brown and each one bore Bunnell’s signature.
At the time, makers of cure chairs were likewise hoping to broaden their appeal. With names like “The Adirondack Recliner” and “The ’Rondack Combination Couch and Chair,” convalescent chairs were marketed to healthy individuals as well as the infirm. The 'Rondack Combination Couch and Chair was advertised as both the "greatest boon an institution or hospital can provide" and "a comfort and a delight in every home."

All-weather plastic chairs are an affordable option. You may need to wipe them down or clean them once in a while with soap and water. Benefits of plastic include the following.
Dear Joanne: Plastic patio furniture can’t be recycled in your curbside recycle container: Its size and shape make it a likely culprit to jam traditional MRF machinery. However, your waste hauler may accept it, if they offer bulk-waste pick-up or drop-off, as the large items they collect will be handled on a more individual basis.
Usually left outside, these chairs are subject to the elements, and with that comes rain, sun, heat, wind and any other crazy form of weather your geographic location can throw at them. In terms of heat, this is one of the biggest problems when it comes to plastic adirondack chairs.
These chairs have been coated with lovely red paint which is a standout when you are outdoors. Overall, this is a fantastic project to check out with your family.
Having a chair that suits the area it’s in is important to me. Which is one of the reasons I like this chair as it gives you a total of 9 different color options so there’s something for close to everyone! This is something I like since having options is always better than not.
" The Classic Adirondack chairs are very comfortable, but my friends seem to enjoy the pillows and the cup holders as much as the chairs."
Hey Tammy. I’ve never tried removing paint from wicker. Sorry I’m not more help here.
Hey Becky, Did you clean the chairs really well before applying? This hasn’t happened to me, but I’m sorry you are having trouble. It may very much depend on how old the plastic is and if it is able to absorb the paint. Also did you happen to use a primer?

I thought the Adirondack furniture for kids was cute and a good price. The chair above is $13.60 and I haven’t seen the wooden that low.
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.
