Admit it. When you picture the ideal summer day, this chair – plus a light beer, a book, and you in a swimsuit – is part of the scene. It was, after all, created in 1903 in the Adirondack Mountains, the epitome of summertime escapes. Since then, it’s become an American mainstay of alfresco R&R. Here? The story behind its staying power.
- It’s known for its wide armrests, curved seat, and high back – i.e., all-around comfort for every body type.
- Yellow cedar wood, which Adirondack chairs are often made from, is naturally resistant to moisture, decay, and insect damage.
- When topped off with protective polyurethane paint, these chairs can withstand the harshest winter or summer weather.
