Adirondack chair kits contain all the necessary parts for construction of an Adirondack chair, which is a type of yard chair with a specific design. Most Adirondack chair kits will include all the components necessary to assemble the chair, though the tools necessary to complete the job will not be included. The wood or materials used to construct the seat, seat back, base, and armrests will all be precut or molded into the proper shapes, so the person assembling the chair will not have to do any woodworking or advanced carpentry. If the Adirondack chair kits are wooden, the wood is often already painted or finished. Wood is the most common material used for Adirondack chair construction.
See the grain on the arm of the chair – I love that it looks like real painted wood (without the maintenance)!

1. Virgin PP (#5) plastic furniture is technically recyclable, but most likely not recyclable curbside.
7) Maintenance Free – who wants to paint and stain every couple of years when they can be lounging with a margarita. Bonus – I can leave them outside all year long.

Being in the Beach area of Toronto, Bear Chairs are not uncommon on front porches. Maybe it’s just me, but I find that certain areas of the city dictate landscaping and curb acceptability. What goes as acceptable in one area, may not be perceived as in good taste in another. So although “Bear Chairs” on porches in the Beach are the norm, I haven’t seen many in Leaside, North Toronto, or the West End. In our area, these chairs are quite common on verandas and porches.

Plastic Adirondack chairs will never need to be stained or waterproofed. However, they will need to be cleaned periodically. Be sure to avoid harsh solvents and abrasives that could scratch or harm the integrity of the plastic.
Traditional Adirondack chairs were made from one long plank of wood cut into eleven pieces and assembled in a certain way to create a comfortable chair for an outdoor space. The chair back was tilted backward for comfort, and the armrests were quite wide. The early models were very simple structures without a lot of aesthetic flare, though more modern designs feature more elaborate cuts to create a look that is more visually appealing. Modern chairs are also larger than the original models for comfort. Adirondack chair kits mostly feature the more modern styles, though some traditional kits may be available.
Getting out of an Adirondack chair isn’t as easy as getting out of a regular chair. However, this depends solely on the person, trying to get out of an Adirondack chair.
