Adirondack Chair Round Up

We've all spent more time than usual at home this year and invested in making our outdoor spaces safe for socializing. If you are still looking for that perfect Adirondack chair, I've put together a list of my favorites for every budget and style.

Want that classic profile at a great price? Ikea's Klöven chair is an excellent option. Available in a dark brown stain or the medium-toned brown of eucalyptus (a popular, sustainable lumber choice for outdoor furniture), the Klöven will work well in both modern and more traditional settings. While well-proportioned and comfortable, this chair leans slightly more compact than many other options on the market, so it's great for smaller spaces.


All-Weather Adirondack Chair (Square Back) via L.L.Bean

I'm a big fan of L.L. Bean's Adirondack, which is lightweight, available in 7 neutral colors, and folds easily for storage. Not only is it made in the U.S., it's also constructed from HDPE lumber (high density polyethylene – think milk jugs and water bottles – mixed with wood fibers to create a sturdy sustainable composite). With a straight-edged back and a more linear aesthetic than the traditional curved form, this chair offers a fresh take on the all-American classic. I love that it's relatively maintenance-free, rot and warp resistant, and easily cleaned with nothing more than soap and water.


Barlow Tyrie Classic Teak Adirondack Chair via AuthenTEAK

When it comes to well-made outdoor teak furniture, Barlow Tyrie is the gold-standard and their Adirondack chair is no exception. Highly durable and long-lasting, teak is a solid choice for any outdoor furnishings and the carefully designed proportions of this chair ensure it's as comfortable as it is beautiful. I love the extra-wide arm rests, which make the perfect perch for a cocktail or two. Teak can truly last decades if given a bit of care. To keep yours looking fresh, be sure to cover them in inclement weather and clean/oil them annually.
