Love an Adirondack chair

The popularity of Adirondack chairs has been going strong for quite a few years now. Here are some of my favourites - some vintage, some new.
There are two old chairs from the 50s - the white one with floral decals I have long admired and belong to Nowra girl and supreme gardener/house renovator Gai Daly. The other was a find from Black & Spiro (thanks Anna). 
The best new ones I have found are made by a local Mens Shed down here on the South Coast (that's the dark grey one on my verandah). They are just a bunch of retired blokes who get together to chat and make stuff and have come up with a style I think is about the nicest I've seen.
I will hopefully have some in my new shop in Berry which opens in August.


  1. One day I hope to make it to Berry. I have seen this beautiful town in many a magazine.

  2. I made one of these chairs a few years ago and painted in pretty pastel colours. I should post a pic of it soon on my blog.

  3. Oh I'd love to see the ones you speak of. They sound lovely.

  4. Hi I saw your comment on 'Villa Anna' so came to have a read.I look forward to getting to know you.
    I love these chairs - but some that are around are not so comfortable.
