Now that we’re upon summer and you’re putting out your old patio furniture, you may be thinking it’s time for an upgrade. One of the classic lawn chairs is the Adirondack chair.
They have a classic look and for the most part they are very comfortable to sit in. I have had a few over the years that the proportions were off and they were only enjoyable if you could put your feet up. I’m sure you’ve also seen these colorful plastic one that have been out for a few years now too.
They’re fun and lightweight and in the right setting they might be just what you were after. We have some in Vermont and some to get some here in Eleuthera. They don’t need to be painted, the bugs won’t eat them and they will not rot. Those are important things to consider in a place with termites, tons of salt and sun and and environment that is tough on most things.
Today there are a multitude of options for outdoor furniture to choose from that are designed and made to last outdoors. There are even cushions that do not need to be brought in nightly due to the materials used. I remember the cloth cushions of my childhood and getting in trouble for not bringing them in before a rain storm.
Ours look more like this and we have no issues of painting or such as they’re plastic. We also don’t have to worry about the sun or a sudden rain storm bothering them.
I even remember when these where the rage and then went out of fashion only to be a hot item again.
It really doesn’t matter what your outdoor furniture is and some can be funky and made of wood.
