And if you happen to have some natural beauty nearby like I do, I'm sure you too love to sit on your favorite Adirondack furniture for hours and appreciate the freshness of nature. Yes, Adirondack chairs have come to exemplify the American outdoor experience.

Mother of invention
The unique characteristic of the Adirondack chair is its backrest, made of strips of wood arranged lengthwise. This slatted pattern apart, these chairs additionally have broad armrests. Their comfort quotient, obviously, is so good that they have become the most preferred seats for decks, patios and outside in general.
History has it that the 1st Adirondack chairs were a proof that necessity is the mother of invention -- a Thomas Lee fashioned Adirondack chairs in early 1903 because his family needed outdoor furniture while on vacation. Sadly for Lee, a artisan friend got the patent for Adirondack chairs. I have a feeling Lee didn't care, as his family knew, he was still the creator and master-craftsman.
Any weather
Basically meant for the outside, Adirondack furniture has to be quite sensitive to different weather. The earliest of these Adirondack chairs were constructed with high-quality wood like teak and willow, that are resistant to extreme heat or cold. But wood cannot stand the rains much. Many new Adirondack chairs are, therefore, made of compacted plastic that can be constructed to look like wood but isn't quite.
Recycled plastic and corrosion-resistant stainless steel too are used by the manufacturers. But when students build these chairs as part of their school projects, they normally use wood.
Spoilt for choice
Given that it is difficult to change much with the basic design of Adirondack chairs, the mind boggles at the variety of these chairs available in the market. The most common ones are the straight-legged, slant-backed chairs made of white cedar, oak, cypress or other wood substitutes. And then there are Adirondack rocking chairs, folding chairs, chairs with ottoman, Adirondack love seats and even recliners and swings. One chair could cost as low as 0, but the cost can go as high as ,000 depending on the complexities of the design and added features.
