A teak Adirondack chair refers to a type of furniture that is quite a favorite for the outdoors. Believed to be first designed by a gentleman named Thomas Lee way back in 1903 while vacationing in Westport, New York, the first of its type is thought to have featured a slant to stay in place on steep mountain sides. It is also believed that the first models were made of eleven pieces of wood that was taken from a single board. The original design has now evolved and has helped in the design of similar pieces of furniture such as gliders and love seats. Today’s designs are available in a variety of color and choice of wood. However the most preferred and stylish option remains the teak Adirondack chair.
As the name suggests teak Adirondack chairs are manufactured using the finest teak wood, taken from a tropical hardwood tree. There are several reasons why a teak Adirondack chair is favored over similar pieces of furniture made from other types of wood. Key amongst them is the ability of the wood to stand outdoor elements such as extreme sunlight or incessant rain. The wood contains natural oils that make it ideally suited for the outdoors for which it is meant for. The fact that the wood is also termite and pest resistant makes teak Adirondack chairs ideal for the outdoors where you may want to have a conversation with friends and family or just watch the world go by.
Teak Adirondack chairs also last much longer when treated with oil or varnish. This means they can be kept outdoors even permanently without having the need to drag them indoors every now and then. These stylish and flamboyant looking pieces of furniture although made from teak can be given various hues to suit the setting. You may also use comfortable cushions to soften things up. While white cushions and coverlets add a touch of chic you may also look at printed options such as floral and stripes. Teak Adirondack chairs look particularly stunning when placed by lakesides and pools as well as patios. Throw in some color and comfortable material or pillows and you could just about spend an entire day and night luxuriating on one of these.
Teak Adirondack chairs are available throughout the country at most furniture stores, though you could also look at the possibility of having them personally made for you, in case you have specific requirements with regard to the type of teak Adirondack chairs you desire. You could also order them online through a host of online furniture dealers. Whatever the case though, a collection of teak Adirondack chairs is bound to add a sense of style and grandeur coupled with a laid back atmosphere that will beckon you to spend hours in casual comfort.
