Adirondack Gone Rogue


I love the look of the classic Adirondack chair.
{These two are from my back yard.}

I'm amazed by all the modern interpretations
of this warm weather staple.

  5. I'm still partial to the classic design. I have navy blue ones for husband/me and for our children. Your yard looks soothing.

  9. These were all over the Casual Furniture/Living Show in Chicago last Fall. I guess they are classics! My parents were going to do some too for their W.I.N.O.S outdoor collection, but they were literally at every corner! I will have to post about them soon ;)

  14. Love them! Smith and Hawkins used to have a set the exact color of my hydrangeas, and now of course I cannot get them anywhere ... got to move on these things or they go fast! But I think I prefer the traditional ones.

  16. I think my favorites are those chairs by Loll. How fun would it to be to have a bunch in different styles and colors! I'd be afraid to try it but I know there are people out there who could pull it off!

  17. Somehow I like yours the best, although the Modirondack Chair is great, too. And all the different colours at the beach make a lovely picture.

  24. The Luxembourg Lounge chair by Fermob also has the Adirondack feel but metal instead of wood It is a style that has been used in the Luxembourg Gardens in Paris for over 100 years. So stylish! I got a chartreuse pair in a cheerful chartreuse to put in my shop. Lovely!

  25. hahaha great title! loving the wave collection. oh what i would give to be sitting in one on a beach or by a lake right now :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. i love the painted ones in fun colors. there's something about updating a classic shape in a crazy color that gets me going :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. The Loll's are fabulous - a must-have for "lolling" about the backyard!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Well, it's hard to improve upon a classic, but it appears that several have tried to! I still love the classic shape. It just evokes a certain feel that is summer to me.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Your backyard is beautiful! While I prefer the classic chair myself, the Wave Collection is fun!

  30. I really like that second one. I'd love to get one of those for my garden.

  34. Love! We have these...
    http://www.archiesisland.com/products/fan-back-adirondack-chair-classic-white

    which we bought about five years ago... I love their updated shape. They've been fabulous for us. At that time, they were the only ones I could find that had a slightly (but not too) modern nod to them. Archie makes them himself - it's a cool story. We worked directly with him, and I loved that!

  36. Oh I love them as well. Now I just need a beach house to go with them.

    Have you seen them in lucite? I found them in a magazine a while back.

  37. Thanks for stopping by yesterday and your lovely comment!! The best part is that I got to discovered your blog..love it!!! Hope you are having a fabulous day!

    ReplyDelete
  38. These are great! They really are comfy for curling up in with a pillow and a book for reading. I re-painted a bunch out on my parents farm a couple of years ago in a bright cheerful shade of green :)

  39. I would love to to lounge drinking something nice with a fab beach view
    Greta choices!!

  40. Your back yard is so inviting-- I do love the modern pics you shared, but cannot get the image of your back yard out of my head. Classic wins the day for me.

  41. I love those chairs... my parents had a few when they own a cabin on the lake.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Love your backyard it looks like a park!! I like the classic too. I did like the colorful ones from pottery barn but the others are a bit out there but interesting concept, love new ideas!! You never know when one will take off!! Happy Tues. Kathysue

  43. I love seeing all these modern interpretations of a classic! I like some better than others, but you can't go wrong with the original.
    I love to see them in bright colors, too!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Loving all your variations of the Adirondack chair, but I still think there's nothing more classic than the white ones sitting in the grass on a large property overlooking some fabulous landscape or on a porch of New England/Nantucket style home. Now that's bliss!!
    Thanks for sharing such great images. See you again soon.
    I hope you are having a wonderful day!

  49. i love them too! as long as they don't pinch the skin or give splinters!

  50. I think Adirondack chairs were the first home decor item that my husband and I ever agreed on. We were debating what to buy for the backyard and were SHOCKED to agree. You see, Dave's primary aim of design is comfort, while mine is looks...and fortunately for us these accomplish both aims!

  51. we have white one's too. love the cb2 ones though.
