At first, patients sat outside on collapsible steamer chairs or rockers or pulled two stationary chairs together to get comfortable. “They look kind of cold and miserable,” Catania says, referencing photographs of patients bundled in blankets, their feet resting on wooden armchairs. Around the turn of the century came an improvement: The “cure chair,” a chaise lounge-like recliner modeled on those used in European sanatoriums. With wide armrests, an adjustable back and springs that supported a tufted cushion, “It really gave people a much more comfortable way to lie outside,” Catania says. Production of the chairs ensued, with several area residents receiving patents on their designs. Most adopted the lounger profile, but at least one was designed as a reclining chair. Men rest on cure chairs on a porch. Historic Saranac Lake Collection

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.

Overall I can’t really fault this chair, maybe the assembly could be easier but that’s not a big deal either. It’s oversized and very heavy duty which is what us plus size people need in an Adirondack chair. Also comes in a nice natural selection of colors, Weathered Acorn being our best pick.
Thanks for the info, Corey. I didn’t use primer either and I feel like I used quite a bit of paint. I tried to use a sweeping motion while spraying and I was worried about using too much, but since you mentioned using a thick coat, I guess I didn’t use too much (even though I used more than one can).

While acacia is very durable, it is not suitable for outdoor use unless treated and sealed. Without a protective sealing finish, it is prone to drying out, becoming brittle, and crumbling under pressure. Acacia will also fade and warp with excessive heat and humidity.
A noticeable trend these days is to construct outdoor furniture from imitation wood. While it does look good and has great weather resistant capabilities, it will never replace the real deal wood look.
