The thing we should look at with this Lifetime chair is it’s heavy duty rating. Yea it’s good, but where it lacks is in the market for people above 300 lbs whom need wider seats. The colors are limited and has a smaller warranty from the Manufacturer.
2. Donate It: Pack up your old-to-you plastic furniture and take it to a Goodwill or similar donations-based thrift store, so someone else can have a new-to-them patio set. .
My husband and I were not sure what we wanted around our fire pit and decided that we love Adirondack chairs, but we wanted without the maintenance. A search online connected us to Levi and Amish Made Poly. We called in the evening and we were surprised to get Levi. He emailed pictures of colors, was able to create exactly what we wanted and has followed through to make sure we are happy. We are so happy with our chairs and side tables and with Levi and his team. They are perfect and exactly what we were looking for!!
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.
The Lifetime Adirondack Chair 60064 [Amazon Link] [Wayfair Link] is a great poly Adirondack chair for those on a budget. This unit is comfortable and attractive, with a simple design and a slightly curved back.
Lee used 11 boards to make a wide chair with a solid-plank back set at a roughly 90-degree angle to its sloping seat. Its 9 ½-inch wide armrests were set high enough to lift the chest when elbows are rested upon them. Whether or not Lee was aware of it, his chair’s board construction reflected the region’s long tradition of simple, practical furniture made by homesteaders and local carpenters.

Gorilla Glue doesn't work. We have about 10 of these chairs with tables at our Lake house and they all eventually split, crack, etc. I tried every thing including Gorilla, Crazy, and any other glue, duct tape, etc. I now put a towel over chair to cover cracked part and "Forget about it". My husband saw the chairs for $12. at a local hardware store up at the lake house so when the towels wear out we will just spring for the new chair. Good luck and let me know if you have had any success with your repair efforts,

According to Mack’s book, Bunnell produced his “Westport Plank Chair” in a basement workshop and sold them for $4 out of a retail store on the town’s main street. By 1912, a version called the “Adirondack Bungalow Chair” was being sold through W.C. Leonard’s department store in Saranac Lake, and copycats soon followed. Bunnell continued to manufacture the chair himself until about 1930, producing variations that included an alternate-facing tête-à-tête version and another that converted to a rocking chair. By the time Bunnell died of pneumonia in March 1933, his chair design had found its way beyond northern New York. The newspaper notice announcing his death hailed him as the “manufacturer of the world-wide known Adirondack camp chair.”

We just gave away a patio set made of iron and all-weather (plastic) wicker. I would have preferred to repaint the iron and get new cushions made but my husband wanted a different look. Luckily a young and crafty couple were looking for a good project and took the whole whole set off our hands. I asked them to post pictures when they finish redoing them. Since living in my neighborhood we found that almost anything we no longer want or need can be reused by someone in a creative way. Had not idea that plastic could be successfully spray painted.

Dear Joanne: Plastic patio furniture can’t be recycled in your curbside recycle container: Its size and shape make it a likely culprit to jam traditional MRF machinery. However, your waste hauler may accept it, if they offer bulk-waste pick-up or drop-off, as the large items they collect will be handled on a more individual basis.
3.0 out of 5 stars Some screws stripped / possible color fading I love this chair. It was easy to assemble and it's super comfortable. But when I ordered mine I paid $147.00 and then i went back to get the other three we need and they went up to $229.00. That's an $82.00 difference. That's crazy. What happened?!
