For generations, the Adirondack chair has been an icon of the cabin lifestyle. Its steeply angled back, deep seat and broad arms immediately welcome us to sit down and stay a while – a long while. Just to relax. But those signature characteristics that define the Adirondack chair graciously offer a lot of room for interpretation. Artisans and designers have been putting their own spin on the classic since its inception.
