Outdoors: Adirondack Roundup

Issue 27 · Back to Basics · July 4, 2008

I spotted the original O.G. Adirondack chair (below), designed in 1903 by Thomas Lee, on Reference Library, which inspired me to look for appealing variations on the iconic design.


Below: Emmet Chair by Loll; made from 100 percent post-industrial recycled plastic; $349 at Room and Board.


Below: New England series B85 Chair for Royal Botania by Pierre Stelmaszyk; made of teak painted white; $1,595 from Unica Home.


Below: Michigan-based Jebred Furniture makes painted poplar Adirondacks available in a dozen colors, ranging from pale pink to hot lime. Chairs are $260 each.


Below: Folding Adirondack chair from Lake Placid; $159.95.
