Why are Adirondack chairs expensive?

Updated: Aug 3, 2022

Why would you spend more money on an Adirondack Chair, when you can choose from dozens of outdoor lawn chair designs for a lesser price?

We know the answer to that one; you don’t want to be purchasing replacement furniture for your patio every two or three years! We make quality wooden garden chairs all by hand, which stand the test of time. Adirondack chairs are a luxury hallmark of satisfaction in the outdoors. Not only are they unique, comfortable and easy to maintain, but their eye-catching design will make them a conversation piece at any garden party. As you spend quality time outdoors in the warmer weather, consider the following points to determine why you should choose Adirondack chairs for your outdoor seating.

Quality Materials: Plastic chairs degrade and crack when exposed to sun and cold, a folding chair will blow away in the wind, while upholstered chairs get wet and mouldy. We select natural European larch wood for the construction of our Adirondack chairs. This golden, durable wood with exotic grain patterns is chosen for weathering the outdoors for many years with minimal time spent on maintenance. If you wish to add a finish, you may do so yourself, though this is not required. We have a handy guide to how to care for your chair if you would like to learn more. As the wood ages, it gently silvers to a natural grey, blending nicely with your garden earth tones. We don’t expose you or your loved ones to harmful treated wood, nor to unsafe chemical coatings.
