First seen in the early 1900's at summer homes around Westport, New York (in the Adirondack mountains) the Adirondack chair is traditionally made of a series of wood planks and features a seat that leans back almost to the ground plus wide armrests perfect for resting a drink or a book.
Adirondack chairs are available in natural wood finishes as well as many bright summer colors. Many retailers offer low-maintenance recycled polywood Adirondack chairs in addition to the traditional stained or painted wood plank chair.
These deep red adirondack chairs provide a lovely pop of color to a natural wood deck while also maintaining a classic American look.
Chaise lounge Adirondack chairs and matching side tables are just a few of the other outdoor furniture options available in Adirondack style. Adirondack chairs are available at most outdoor furniture retailers, including the Amish retailer Pinecraft.com and Wayfair, an online retailer carrying over 200 styles of Adirondack chairs.
Roomations can help you incorporate Adirondack chairs or other outdoor seating into a design for an outdoor space at your home. Roomations has a national network of interior designers who create concept boards, 3D renderings and shopping lists based on photos you upload to Roomations.com and your answers to a short online style assessment. Sunrooms, screened-in porches and decks or patios are all outdoor "rooms" that can be designed just like an indoor room.
