Furniture Cheat Sheet: The Adirondack Chair

Happy Friday friends!  Even though we are settling into winter, I'm dreaming about my absolute favourite chair....This chair is part of my daily retirement fantasies.  They involve me, a paperback book, a glass of wine, a dock, a body of water, a warm breeze and the adirondack chair.  Yes - when I drift off to La La land you can find me at relaxing by the water (for now the lake, one day - the ocean!).  Here's your cheat sheet:

Here's a sneak peek inside my head when I'm dreaming...

When Jack and I take our little fishing boat out in the summer, we often cruise by cabins that have a row of colourful Adirondacks.  They look like they are just waiting for someone to take a load off!

I especially love them all weather and distressed and looking like they survived a lifetime of enjoyment!

Aren't these modern interpretations super cool?  They are so chic and the beachy colours are so modern.

I think this one's pretty funky with the curved top!

What's your favourite kind of chair?  Do you love the Adirondack?  I know, I know, I should be thinking Christmas but today I've been drifting off to the lake.  What can I say...it's Friday!

Have a great weekend my friends!
