Simple wooden planks form a slightly reclined back, and its deep, inclined plus comfortable seats as well as long arms are proportionately designed for relaxation. The legs are short and close to the ground.

In short, this is something special and included among designer chairs, with a position ideally suited for enjoying the scenery. So you can also arrange Adirondack chairs around a coffee table garden, and I am convinced that this is also the function for which it is designed.
