When it comes to porch or backyard furniture, there are two types of chairs that usually come to mind. These include the Adirondack chair and the classic rocker. This model enables you to have the best of both worlds, as it is designed to combine these two chairs into one excellent piece of furniture. With this chair, you will be able to sit back and relax as you would in a standard Adirondack chair, but then also rock as you would in a rocker. This will give you an extremely comfortable sitting experience that is sure to put your mind at ease.
I don’t know about you but I’ll be spending a good chunk of the summer in our backyard. I can just see myself with a (sometimes adult) beverage in hand watching my kiddos play. It is like a dream…until I realized that there’s no great place to sit! Ya see, we’ve had these disgusting plastic Adirondack chairs for years that leave a white chalky mark on your bee-hind. .
Meanwhile, about 40 miles west of Saranac Lake, Boston native Thomas Lee set about making a simple but comfortable chair from which family members could enjoy the view of Lake Champlain from behind the Lee’s summer home in Westport, New York.

Throughout Saranac Lake, enterprising residents rented homes out as “cure cottages” where tubercular city dwellers could take a chance on the cure. Boarding houses added “cure porches”—spacious, open-air balconies where patients could spend hours outdoors.
Throughout the 19th century, the bacterial lung disease tuberculosis—known as “consumption” for the way it wasted, or consumed, its victims—had plagued America’s expanding cities. By the time the bacterium causing it was identified in 1882, it was responsible for 1 in 7 deaths worldwide. It was the leading killer in turn-of-the-century New York, where it claimed 9,630 lives in 1900, a rate of 280 per 100,000.
By the 1950s, the introduction of antibiotics and other treatments for tuberculosis made the sanatoriums obsolete and cure chairs unnecessary. “When the TB years ended, a lot of them were sent straight to the dump,” says Catania, who still owns one and uses it for reading—until it lulls her into a doze. “They’re really good napping chairs.” Irving Wolpin's "Lawn Chair or Similar Article," patented April 12, 1938 U.S. Design Patent 109,239

All in all, its a very nice looking outdoors Adirondack chair. The fact it is made from very strong hardwood and comes in a variety of colors, including natural, it’s hard to not give this chair a chance. 300 Lbs Weight Capacity Adirondack Chair High Weight Capacity Chair By Lifetime This Adirondack chair is also made in the USA. Made from Polystyrene materials this chair can hold 300 pounds. While in my opinion the finish of the chair itself is not as wood like as the Highwood chair. But it’s still one heavy duty Adirondack chair not to be messed with.
