Painted Art Adirondack Chairs
And then there are lots of artsy painted Adirondack chairs. Some of them are sold by small online stores, while many are sold in local physical stores, like the ones by Nora Butler that I spotted in Naples, FL. Featured here.

Some say Adirondack chairs are a destination of themselves! We want to go there, sit down and enjoy whatever the view. I totally agree with that statement!

A Brief History of the Adirondack Chair:
The men behind the chair? Thomas Lee and Harry Bunnell. Due to a shortage of patio furniture for his 22-member family, Lee started nailing boards together in 1903, then took his prototype to his friend Bunnell, a local carpenter. Bunnel was broke at the time and Lee suggested he take this chair design and build it to sell to locals. Bunnel saw the potential for profit and secured a patent without Lee's knowledge, which, of course, was not very nice. But Lee didn't take issue, and the rest, as they say, is history. The Adirondack chair has become an American icon.
