Overall I can’t really fault this chair, maybe the assembly could be easier but that’s not a big deal either. It’s oversized and very heavy duty which is what us plus size people need in an Adirondack chair. Also comes in a nice natural selection of colors, Weathered Acorn being our best pick.

“It is a chair rooted in the history of disease,” is how artist and furniture maker Daniel Mack put it in The Adirondack Chair: A Celebration of a Summer Classic, a 2008 tribute to the quintessential piece of porch furniture.
The size of this chair is great compared to a lot of others due to it’s higher back and decent size seat width. It has an impressive height of 39.25 which will help the taller people out there with some extra back support. The width of the seat is decent but might be a bit narrow for some with it measuring 20.75 inches.
The weight of this chair is fairly heavy but as I mentioned before, having a heavier outdoor chair isn’t actually a bad thing. With it weighing 45lbs it’s going to be difficult to be blown around in all but the strongest of winds.
One thing that I have to mention with this chair is the sheer number of color varieties it has. Most companies will offer a couple like 5 -6 which is great. This company has gone above and beyond offering a total of 18 different colors so there’s most likely something for your outdoor setting.
This is a very unique and beautiful chair as well as a neat replication of the historical chair made by Thomas Lee in 1903. Our Westport chair seat is made with five slat boards for better water drainage rather than using only two like the original historical chair. Our 9 1/4" inch wide arms and beautiful solid one piece back are made just like the original Westport. Available in Mahogany wood only.
We’re also very interested in making this the best-curated collection of outdoor bar height Adirondack chairs PDF free plans, anywhere on the web, so if you know about a source for high-quality plans, we didn’t mention here, please leave a comment and let us know about it. We’ll be more than happy to evaluate it for possible inclusion in this article.
The measurements above are the minimums. Anything above them is really good for the big tall people who want extra comfort and relaxation.
However as a big Man I too also realize the Adirondacks only downfall. Which is how low they sit to the ground which can make getting in and out of the chair harder. Depending on your size, you may find similar problems.
The design of the chair does help your spine thanks to there reclined and angled support. There are some other added benefits to these types of chairs as well, such as taking the pressure off your ankles since they’re not on the ground most of the time.
Next, add the arms, then the back. Make sure to use a level and space your boards evenly. (The weather took a turn and we had to continue on the porch)
Hi Gina. I just used a kitchen sponge with a rough side. Not all of the chalky stuff came off, but they were better than when I started. The paint did just fine without getting all of the chalky stuff off first. I have exactly the same chairs with the same horrible chalky residue on them. Did you have to remove the chalky substance before painting? I went to Home Depot to buy my paint (ironically Satin Lagoon and a Satin Eden). The guy there told me to use TSP and steel wool to scrub off the white chalky residue, then dry then paint 2 coats. So far I have only scrubbed 1 chair (I have 4 lol) and it was exhausting. Just wondering if you scrubbed that off first or am I wasting my time. My friends think I am crazy to waste so much time painting 17.00 chairs lol.
Before calling your hauler to check on the bulk-waste option, try to find out which type of plastic your patio furniture is so you can confirm with them whether or not they accept that type of plastic in their bulk collection.
