We bet you didn't know the word "Adirondack" comes from a Mohawk word meaning, "they eat trees." Our Adirondack chairs aren't edible, but they look so delicious that we wouldn't blame you for trying (but really - don't). Our Adirondack Buying Guide is a quick, tasty way to get a breakdown of the selection we offer as well as the rich historical connection of the Adirondack chair to the Great American Outdoors.
Before you do anything, you'll need to decide on a material for your chair. If you prefer the classics, a wood Adirondack chair will be your best bet, and if you like things a little funkier, you may go for a painted Adirondack chair. However, if your pockets are a little, shall we say-deeper, a teak Adirondack chair is an excellent choice. Finally, for our green customers, we offer a full selection of recycled plastic Adirondack chairs. While you shop, don't forget to look for special features like comfort backs, all-in-one, and folding styles. And don't forget the cushions.
If all wood Adirondack chairs are comfortable and beautiful, does it really matter what kind of wood it's made of? You might be surprised. While you can be sure that any wood option will look fantastic on your patio, it's true that you get what you pay for. Read on for some straight talk on wood types and what you get out of each one.
All-weather Adirondack furniture, otherwise know as recycled-plastic, is a no-brainer choice for outdoor use. The durability of this stuff is outstanding, and it laughs in the face of typically damaging elements like salt water, sunlight, paint, stains, and mineral spirits. These recycled plastic pieces look like new for years thanks to their resistance to UV rays and moisture. The non-porous surfaces have the look of real wood, but will never mold, mildew or rot. Plus, you're doing the environment a favor. The stuff used in this furniture would be in a landfill if not for your purchase.
We know that many parents cringe at the thought of buying kid-sized furniture, and we know why. The pint-sized stuff usually features the latest cartoon phenomenon or ghastly colors that will ruin the overall look of your deck. Kids Adirondack chairs are the answer to that problem. Crafted from quality materials, these chairs are simply miniature replicas of their adult-sized, respectable counterparts.
Picking out the perfect Adirondack chair can be a lot like picking out your perfect mate. You want something you're comfortable with, something that makes you feel good about yourself, and something that, quite frankly, you won't be embarrassed to be seen with. Features like comfort backs, reclining backs, and folding styles are all things that are sure to make one chair more attractive than another.
