While driving through neighborhoods scouting for our annual 10 Most Beautiful Homes issue, editor Laura Kostelny and I noticed an astonishing number of Adirondack chairs. Sometimes they appeared in pairs, some were arranged in a circle around a fire pit, and in some super adorable instances, they were joined by pint-sized versions for the little ones in the family. But regardless of color, size, or arrangement, this particular style was the only chair game in town. And now that the rain has abated (even if just for a few more hours), it’s the perfect time to snag yourself a seat and watch the world go by from the comfort of your front lawn. Here are options at two different price points to suit your needs:
Loll Designs Adirondack Chair (Large), $488.75 at Design Within Reach
In addition to being waterproof, fade-resistant, and maintenance-free, this all-weather beauty—available in 10 different color options—is made from 100% recycled and recyclable plastic. So you can kick up your feet as rest even easier knowing your purchase was not only stylish but good for the environment as well. Matching ottomans and side tables are also available (for $199.75 and $191.25, respectively).
Adirondack Chair in Barbados Cherry, $129.99 at World Market
Made from durable acacia wood and available in 10 sunny shades, this chair is built for comfort. The wood, however, is not weatherproof and should be moved inside whenever there’s (endless, punishing) rain. Matching ottomans and side tables are also available (for $49.99 each).
