Nothing says "relaxing in New England" or "lounging by the lake" like a couple of Adirondack chairs. They work well in a garden, on a front porch, on a patio — really anywhere you might have room for them. Unlike your office chair — or the kitchen chair you’ve been using as an office chair — their very shape encourages grabbing an ice-cold drink, leaning back and relaxing.
When it comes to Adirondacks, however, there are a lot of choices. Picky about color? You can find everything from an unfinished wooden chair to a bright teal one. Want to adjust your comfort level? Some chairs function like beach chairs, allowing you to pick the best setting for your back. And, of course, they come in a range of prices to fit any budget. Here are our favorites:
Best for Your Wallet: Looking to create an oasis on a budget? Try out a chair from this line of Adams High-Back Adirondack Chairs. Made from polypropylene, these do well in the rain and don’t need a ton of maintenance. The higher back provides additional comfort, whether you’re trying to sit up and read or lay back and snooze. Best of all, they come in a bunch of colors, from forest green to bright blue.
Marries Comfort with a Nice Price Tag: Maybe you want the Goldilocks of Adirondack chairs? The Keter Troy Adirondack Chair is a step above the Adams chair. If you’re going for pleasing aesthetics, the UV protected resin is resistant to rust and peeling and keeps its eye-catching appeal for the long term. Yet the chair offers cozy, comfortable seating with a nice mid-range price tag and a 10-year frame warranty.
The Ultimate Lounger: Finally, if you’re looking for a top-of-the-line lounger, the Living Accents Resin Adirondack Chair is the one for you. Easier to maintain than wood, this one still gets plenty of aesthetic points. Bonus: You can pair it with a matching Living Accents Adirondack Ottoman (sold separately).
