Amish Adirondack chairs are ideal for backyards and porches

by Tom Grimes

Few things are as relaxing as sitting down and watching the sunset from home, or talking to friends or family in the sunlight. The trick to having seating for outdoor porches or backyard settings is to make sure that the furniture blends with the aesthetic of the household.

Plastic chairs may not be as comfortable or durable as alternatives, and heavy rain or wind can damage this kind of outdoor pieces, so it may be better to invest in furniture that can withstand the elements, as well as the test of time.

Amish handcrafted furniture boasts some of the sturdiest, most reliable designs that can adorn a home. Amish Adirondack chairs are particularly well-suited to the outdoors, because they are heavy enough to resist the weather, but light enough to be mobile.

Designed by Thomas Lee in 1903 for the setting of the Adirondack forest preserve in New York, these pieces are meant to complement a countryside environment. The unique shape of these chairs also makes them noticeably more comfortable than other outdoor pieces, with broad armrests and seats that offer ample space for relaxation.

Like all Amish pieces, these chairs will add a lasting and traditional beauty to the atmosphere of a home. ADNFCR-3308-ID-19917243-ADNFCR
