When I was house shopping, I knew I had to have a yard where we could hang out, enjoy a cold beer, do some gardening, etc. Now that our tiny urban farm is well underway, Sean and I have been sitting back to enjoy our hard work… except we’re sitting on the front porch steps! He really wants to get Adirondack chairs because they’re comfortable, but I’m not totally sold. They always feel too ‘forest cabin’ to me and not modern enough. He’s really set on them though so I did an internet deep dive and found a few good options! I know I can’t be the only one with this problem, so here are a few really great modern Adirondack chair options:

Recycled Plastic Adirondack Chair

What to look for when buying an Adirondack chair:

  • Material — some chairs are wood (like teak or cedar), while others are made of plastic, a plastic composite, or powercoated metal. I suggest making the decision based on which material will work best in your climate.
  • Foldability — some Adirondack chairs actually collapse or fold down so they are easier to store in the winter.
  • Style — I chose a pair of chairs that match the clean lines of our black fence.
  • Color — there are so many colorful options for outdoor furniture! No matter your color palette, you can either DIY by painting a wooden chair or find one already painted.
