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.
