The Adirondack chair is often referred to as being ‘iconic’. Over numerous generations, skilled craftsmen who so loved working with wood, have designed and artfully crafted these classic seats with the familiar high backs.There was a time that just the presence of these Adirondack chairs in someones yard was regarded as their making a status statement. It was a common sight to see, and one that those doing so thoroughly enjoyed, of watching someone slide down onto the deer seat holding their favorite beverage , breathing in the clear fresh air, and getting lost a bit in the beauty surrounding them.
Today, as in times gone by, these beautiful creations still stand as an example of classic and highly desired outdoor furniture. These days there have been several changes added to the original basic Adirondack furniture such as the recliner that comes complete with an ottoman one can pull out and goes by the handle, “Big Daddy”. Or that folding model available that answers to “Forever Phat Tommy”.
Now that basic conventional chair made from wood, and plastic adirondack chairs as well, have added an extra piece of comfort, usually in the form of a colorful and very soft pillow. Resin adirondack chairs can also benefit from outdoor patio furniture covers. Also in today’s world, it is not uncommon to glimpse a wicker sofa, teak outdoor furniture, and even a hydraulic chaise populating a backyard. There have even been large sectionals spotted, sometimes in close proximity to that stone fireplace that everyone loves.
Classic pieces seen in European clubs have led to the creation of pewter and aluminum seats that many have chosen to place in a gazebo where they can enjoy the tranquility of their setting no matter what the weather happens to be at any particular time.
That people lounging in outdoor gazebos can take the time to drink in all of the beauty of their surroundings which possibly might include fountains, statues, planters, sculptures or columns. Or they might just choose to focus on the serene feeling they are enjoying for a time. There might be pathways in the garden, perhaps some leading to a pool, cabana, hot tub or bar area. Others may simply wind past a sundial, weather vane or trellis.
Of course, at some point the garden ends. Clever planners will try to be certain that the borders will be artfully and tastefully incorporated into the overall natural beauty of the rest of the garden. And a few of those classic Adirondack chairs present will simply complete the perfect picture.
