I bought these to replace a set of wood Adirondack chairs that I have used for several years. I have had to repaint those and make repairs many times, so I was looking for something that had a wood look but was more maintenance free. The synthetic wood or composite chairs are usually extremely expensive. These are a nice compromise. They are a heavy weight so won't blow over, are made well and best of all are basically maintenance free. They clean off with a wet rag and the color is through and through. No painting. No rotting. They come mostly assembled, just had to attached a few things, very simple to do. The hardware was nice quality and the holes all lined up and they went together nice and tight. They do have a more plastic look and feel up close than some of the more expensive chairs, but they look great in the yard and I am pretty pleased with them all around. I do think they will last for a long time. Loved the price. Will be ordering 2 more.
In the past I've purchased adirondack chairs which required a stain or painted finish. Unfortunately, not only did they not hold their paint well (despite priming and proper application), the arms lost their grip with their glue. In this synthetic highwood adirondack chair, I have the weight and feel of a classic wood chair that has the color all the way through and enough weight that it will not blow off a dock. Assembly was reasonably easy (although I did pull out a power screw driver and appropriate tips). I was a bit surprised that the chairs are smaller in scale than I expected, but because of that they will actually work better on our dock and my husband still found them comfortable at 6' (and well padded).
Two chairs arrived well packaged in separate boxes. Clear instructions for easy assembly. Color is classy and goes with any décor. very good value and timely delivery. Company is American owned and operated in PA. All in all a winning combination!
Very sturdy and comfortable chair, recommend a small pillow for lumbar support. Easy to assemble with only a few bolts and included hex wrench. Packed very well for shipping and received very quickly. One chair had a slightly lighter colored wood backrest piece, but it goes ok with the deck colors that we have, so I'm not worrying about it.
I purchased two of these. They do require assembly. Once you have assembled one (not many pieces), the second one goes together fast. I am considering buying two more. They are very sturdy and I have hosed them once already...so much better than wood and wrought-iron pieces!
I looked at similar chairs in stores. I did not want wood because I live near the ocean and the salt air and weather requires constant maintenance of wood. Tgese are really well made and attractive chairs. They are easily assembled (helps to have 2 people but you can do it solo). Got them on a sale at O. They do not fold...but I have folding ones at another house and the hardware always is a problem. (Different manumanufacturers). These chairs are a good value.
