But the real winner for us somewhat lazy big guys is the no maintenance ever whatsoever appeal. Unlike traditional wooden Adirondacks, you wont need to sand, varnish or paint this chair ever again. .
Hey Diane! You definitely want them to be smooth and very clean so the paint will stick. I’m not sure sanding plastic is necessary, but giving them a good scrub is a good idea. If they’re wood, then yes, sand them first.

If you sit in your chair for more than an hour each day it might be beneficial to purchase a cushion for more comfort. The chair can be easily tied to the four straps of the cushion, and it will be more comfortable and will not fall apart while sitting. Multiple cushion manufacturers offer different types of Adirondack Cushions in different sizes and colors.
All of the sales staff is friendly and no one follows you around the show room unless you ask for help specifically. Marie is especially knowledgeable about fabric care and gave me some great advice to get stains out of another piece of furniture I had.

Do you think this will work on resin wicker furniture (walmart kind not the fancy JoPa kind!)
Overall the Lifetime 60064 Poly Resin Adirondack Chairs are solidly made and feel good to sit in.
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….
After settling on a design, he hired a local Westport Carpenter named Harry Bunnell to make a set of the chairs. Impressed by the design, Bunnell saw the commercial potential and began selling the chairs to Westport’s other visitors. Unfortunately, he… forgot… to ask Thomas Lee’s permission to sell the chairs. Bunnell filed for a patent on the design, and received one in 1905, despite not actually designing the chair. Bunnell sold the “Westport chairs”, made of Hemlock, for the next 20 years. Typically he would paint them green or brown, and he sold them directly to buyers.
It wouldn’t be the first time that furniture designed for the sick or infirm crossed into the mainstream, says Patricia Kane, a curator of American Decorative Arts at Yale University Art Gallery, who obtained a Westport chair for the collection in 2002. A classic example is the wing chair, whose dual protuberances were likely designed to support the head of elderly or infirm occupants and which—like Bunnell’s patented chair—were sometimes fitted with commodes. “Nowadays they’ve migrated into our living rooms, and we think of them as living room furniture,” Kane says.

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.
