Sure look very close. I’m guessing that they were not designed without someone seeing the other.

I give….what’s the difference? The term looks to be interchangeable from the pics I see. Some are even called “Adirondack Muskoka”.

like patron said, the muskoka chairs are curvier in design and are better fitting with your comfort. Adirondack chairs are simpler and flatter in design.

OK, eh, I think Muskoka is the one I like too, eh. Probably because I am from the great white north too eh. Although I think both came into being about the same time.

Personally I don’t like the heavy flat look of the Andirondack chair. They may be more comfortable than they look but I want to see more shaping. They remind me of picket fences made into a chair.
