Topic tags/keywords: adirondack ergonomic ergonomical s-curve

Team,
Most people love the basic Adirondack chair, myself included. However the straight back of an A. C. doesn’t feel good to me for very long. I’m wondering how to build in some curvature that makes a bit of an “S-curve” for one’s lower back.

Anyone ever seen such a thing/build or designed one?

Thanks in advance.

Michael Fortune designed one he called a garden chair. It was published in FWW.

Adirondacks are so darn hard to get out of could they really be made ergonomic ? :)

@Yonak

Craft them slightly higher in the front, raise the back of the seat along with a slightly more upright back, which should make them much easier to stand up yet retaining the comfort.
