Adirondack Is Back - The Hottest New (Old) Fad In Outdoor Furniture!
It's not a huge surprise that a classic, all-American style like the Adirondack Chair is making a major come back in only the last two years. This fad is spreading quickly because folks all over North America are electing to spend a great deal more time relaxing in their thoughtfully crafted outside living area. I myself remember as a 6 year old kid, sliding into one of these comfortable old chairs, with my feet hanging barely over the edge, while grandpa and I peeled apples from the trees and discussed the apple pie topped with melting vanilla ice cream that we just knew grandma was going to have for us after supper. I balanced my lemonade on the wide arm rest, the breeze was mellow and warm. When Grandpa told his stories, he made time fly. It's truly no mystery why we like to relax outside, whether it is on your deck, out on the patio, on the porch, or in your garden area. What better way to relax than to slide into a comfortable, high backed, deep seated Adirondack chair and leave your cares behind.
So just where did this little bit of Americana come from? Actually, the Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York. This style was commonplace among the various vacation resorts and mountain hide aways that were so prominent back in the day. By the time the 1940's came around you could see Adirondack furniture just about every place. The style moved to the south and headed west quickly. As the Adirondack design started to get more popular, and found its way around the country, regional influences began to show up. The design was used in various styles of outdoor furniture which include; gliders, benches, rocking chairs, porch swings, and because of our French Canadian neighbors, a conversation piece they called the "tete a tete" which means; "head to head". This romantic little design combines two chairs and a table in between them constructed as one piece. What a fantastic way to spend a warm Spring afternoon with someone who loves you!
You're going to be shocked and happy to find a great selection of Adirondack style furniture that is available now. Not only has the original furniture design stood the winds of time, but the whole Adirondack sensation has exploded with a pleasant selection of finishes, colors, styles, and material. Conventional Adirondack furniture is constructed with wood that's known for resisting deterioration and insects like cypress, white or red cedar, oak, or cherry. The wood selected varies by location as do specific styles. A popular new option in conventional Adirondack is outdoor furniture built with polymer "lumber" that is literally made out of recycled plastic packaging, old milk cartons, and such. This is not only an environmentally responsible way to invest in your furniture, but you have some advantages with durability, longevity, ease of care, and colors aren't going to pale because the pigments are mixed through the plastic with UV inhibitors to protect it.
