Who it is for: People who love modern design but don’t want to sacrifice comfort.
For whom it is not: People who want an adjustable Adirondack chair.

For people with an urban outdoor space or anyone who loves modern decor, this sleek Adirondack chair is the best in style and comfort. “I felt the angle of the chair back provided lumbar support and placed my body at a comfortable angle,” said one tester. In our “peak tests” – our stability tests in which we threw two 15-pound medicine balls at the chair and attempted to push it back with medium force – the chair did not tip back or experience any damage, which testifies to its durability. , too.

The polywood construction is also largely to thank for the durability of this chair. The material contains UV inhibitors and stabilizers to protect against fading and is designed to withstand four seasons without chipping, peeling, cracking, breaking or rotting. Our testers found it easy to clean marshmallow and barbecue sauce stains with a little soap and water. And when it came time to hose down the chair, the water beaded up and easily wiped up with a towel, and testers say they were able to sit down in the chair immediately without getting wet. Plus, the smooth Polywood felt nice on the skin and didn’t get too hot when wearing shorts.

But given that it’s the second heaviest chair on our list and doesn’t fold, it won’t be very portable. It doesn’t feature any adjustments or extras like cup holders, but if you’re looking for a weatherproof, no-frills Adirondack chair that offers plenty of support, this chair fits the bill. It’s even available in over a dozen colors, from neutrals to brights.
