The 6 best Adirondack Chairs of 2023

If you have been shopping for Adirondack chairs, you have undoubtedly seen many different colors and materials such as teak, ipe, and poly all at different price points.  Choosing the best chair for your space shouldn't be that difficult so we have narrowed the choices down to what we believe are the 6 best choices to fit your needs and budget.  We have rated each chair on style, comfort and value!


Adirondack chairs have been a staple of outdoor living since the early 1900s.  While early designs were made of wood and lacked curves and contours (think comfort!), new designs feature modern materials and greatly improved ergonomics for a more comfortable and relaxing evening around the firepit or lakeside morning coffee.


A few popular variations for you to consider are Adirondack Rockers, perfect for front porches and views unobstructed by railings.   Counter Height Adirondack Chairs are the easiest to get in and out of and are perfect for getting your eyes above balcony railing for coastal properties, decks, and docks, while bar height versions are perfect for seating at outdoor kitchens and bars.

Honorable Mentions

.#1. Berlin Gardens Swivel Glider.  While not technically an Adirondack Chair, the Berlin Gardens Comfo Back Swivel Gliders is one of Casual Furniture Worlds' best sellers.  Although it's one of the most expensive poly chairs we carry, the comfort of this chair sells itself.  If you truly plan on spending a few hours relaxing in a chair this is a must-see and an option to consider


#2  Polywood Kids Adirondack Chair (and picnic table).  If you are wanting to create the ultimate family space and really bring the kids into the mix, the Polywood Kids Adirondack chair and/or picnic table may be great additions. 



*Almost all Adirondack chairs require assembly.  Before purchasing online, we highly recommend you visit your specialty retailer to see and sit in the many different options available.  We hope that this blog helps you make the best choice for yourself and your family!
