Although the price is higher, we think it’s worth the price. Not having to oil your chair every few months will save you money in the long run. The chair also has a larger width and height than it’s competitors making it suitable for larger folks.

The Swartzentruber family started Green Acres in 1988 as a side business in addition to their produce farming. The business was conducted April – July, three days a week, along Rt. 145 in Whitehall.
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
“I really think it was a marketing thing,” says Laura Rice, currently chief curator of the Adirondack Experience museum, which has both cure chairs and Westport chairs in its collection. “There were a lot of stores selling (cure furniture); that may have been his [Bunnell’s] intent.” She adds, however, that she’s never seen a chair with Bunnell’s modifications, and noted that the low profile of the Westport chair itself is not particularly suitable for someone in a weakened condition.

In 2004 the family decided to create a home heating oil division to help offset the stagnant winter sales of outdoor products. They began to provide heating oil at fair prices to the entire Lehigh Valley.
The design proved popular, and Lee made a number of chairs for family and friends. Then, in 1904, when his hunting pal, Harry C. Bunnell, found himself without a source of winter income, Lee handed over the plans to his chair. And Bunnell, without Lee’s knowledge, received a patent for the design—with a few added features. Harry C. Bunnell, of Westport, New York's Chair, patented July 18, 1905 U.S. Patent 794,777
Mine was doing chalky powder too I found out that it was too hot out and the mist when I was spraying was drying before touching the plastic. So I used a micro fiber cloth wipe off the plastic table I was doing and put another coat once it started to get dark out no chalky powder. I should have known. I’m doing the chairs tomorrow and was looking up how people have done chairs.
Biggest issue? If you are unable to use the stairs to enter and exit the store, then you are going to have to either pass up the chance to visit the showroom or see if they will allow you to enter via another means. The loading dock is not wheelchair accessible. This is a huge problem for persons with ambulatory concerns.
What’s less recognized is that the chair that invites us to lounge lazily for hours originated amid a turn-of-the century health crisis, during which reclining in the fresh outdoor air seemed the only available cure.
Like we said before, one of the biggest benefits of getting a plastic Adirondack chair is that they are so easy to move from place to place. While wooden chairs can easily weigh upwards of 50 or even 60 lbs., plastic models usually top out at around 35-40 lbs.
One of the most important things you need to consider when you are looking for any new furniture is whether it not it fits in with your décor. As such, you should make sure that you get a chair that comes in a color that you want for your backyard space. Thankfully, many chairs on our list, like the Highwood AD-CHL1-NBE, which can be purchased in 14 different shades, come in tons of different colors. If you are not sure which color you want, then maybe the POLYWOOD AD5030WH is a better choice, as this model comes in 15 different colors.
Add luxurious comfort to your existing Adirondack chair with a matching ottoman. Simply slide the ottoman in front of the chair and drape your legs over it to keep your body even more comfortable while you lounge outside. When placed against the Adirondack chair, the two pieces will appear as one cohesive piece of furniture.
Our customers often rent trailers from U-Haul. It only works if they have access to a vehicle with a hitch and a brake light connection. Several folks said they paid $15-$40 for the 1 day rental of a Uhaul trailer if picked up and dropped off at the same location on the same day. Pictured is a 6' x 12' trailer. This trailer is the best choice if you plan to haul more than a few pieces of furniture.
Polywood’s Adirondack chairs are built using high quality recycled HDPE CPVC wood, which is a mix of recycled wood and resin material. It is eco-friendly!
Absolutely! You can spray paint wicker, but be sure to clean (and dry) very thoroughly and then use a multi-material primer layer. I painted mine white so the white primer acted like a base coat anyway….
