What is an Adirondack Chair?

The Adirondack chair is America's favorite outdoor patio chair.  What makes it so is the unique "Adirondack" design.  The rear legs on an Adirondack chair slope back and the arms are level and wide.  When you sit in an Adirondack chair, you sit deep in the seat, your arms rest naturally to the side and your feet rest flat on the ground.

Those are the "common" elements of an Adirondack chair.  From there, an Adirondack chair may feature a flat back, a curved back or a shellback.  All are comfortable; it's really just a matter of taste and choice.  The "original" no-frill's Adirondack chair featured both a flat back and a flat seat.

An Adirondack chair may have a "rolled" front.  We find this type of Adirondack chair works best with taller people.  Because you sit so far back in an Adirondack chair, this extra roll can prevent a shorter person's feet from resting flat on the ground, cutting off circulation at the calves.

An Adirondack chair can also have a brace to support the back.  We often see this design in lightweight China-made chairs.  We do not offer a China-made Adirondack chair at Shop-NC.  An Adirondack chair from Shop-NC is made in the USA or in Canada, where they go by the name "Muskoka chairs".

An Adirondack chair may be the most comfortable chair you ever own and when you buy an Adirondack chair from Shop-NC it has been made to last a long time.  If you have Adirondack chair questions, give us a call - we've been here since 1998 personally helping thousands of satisfied customers, just like you we hope.
