The blue pattern on this checked Adirondack chair mimics the look of an old-school webbed lawn chair. This pine model folds up for easy storage.

These chairs remain stable beside any environmental condition so you can use them any time you want; you can either use them as outdoor furniture and also for indoors.
To understand why these materials are so expensive, you need to know how their design features work. For example, wood Adirondacks are often carved and stained to create coats of rich color. Compared to the natural wood materials that may look much older over the years and will require periodic refinishing or replacement.

Commonly used in building materials as porch and deck flooring, poly resin (CPVC) is a mixture of recycled wood pulp and resin. This material is environmentally friendly and basically indestructible. Color is blended through the material as part of the material creation process, so there is no risk of the color scraping off or anything. The material is designed to be out in virtually all weather and largely can handle snow without difficulty (we still recommend covering poly resin chairs in winter, though).
After 20 years of wanting, thinking and dreaming of owning comfy Adirondack chairs, his dream has finally been fulfilled – and on Earth Day too (April 22!) which is perfect since POLYWOOD is made from over 90% plastic bottle waste (keeping it out of landfills).
In practice, these are almost identical chairs to the Polywood line of poly Adirondack chairs, but the color palette is slightly different. We definitely favor the Polywood line’s colors, but if you find a color you like and the Trex one is cheaper, go for it!
They also need much less care than wooden furniture, as you do not need to varnish or refinish them every year. On the downside, resin furniture cannot be left out on hot days for very long, as this can cause the material to melt. It can also become very hot, which is not a positive thing in a chair. In addition, resin is not a traditional material for Adirondack furniture, and it may be hard to produce the home-spun effect of Adirondack in a plastic chair. While purchasing ready-made resin furniture can be expensive, getting together the kit to construct your own resin chair could turn out to be very costly.

What a beautiful place to relax and appreciate spring. Love the way you accessorized everything too!
Metal furniture does get warm in the sun, but if it is cushioned your skin would never make contact with the aluminum frame. One benefit of aluminum frames is that they tend to have open sides and backs that allow air flow. This is a good feature to have in hot climates. Therefore a wicker frame may be cooler to the touch than an aluminum frame, but they don’t allow air flow because the back and sides are closed.
The image above, showing the chair in the upright position, is identical to the original in position and comfort. The image in the middle shows the chair reclined to 50 degrees....a very comfortable snoozing position. The back is supported by the arms and curved back seat slat, and all pieces are screwed and glued with Gorilla Glue for the necessary strength. A recent Customer picked up some plans at my home and sat in one of the final prototypes. He found it very comfortable in the reclined position, and strong enough to hold his over 6' height and 210 lb. weight.
So funny — as a fellow Upper Beacher, I sit on my porch in my Muskoka chair all the time, but never would have thought I would either!
Oh- it looks wonderful in your yard! Love it! Your whole yard is gorgeous- xo Diana
