I spotted the original O.G. Adirondack chair (below), designed in 1903 by Thomas Lee, on Reference Library, which inspired me to look for appealing variations on the iconic design.

Below: Emmet Chair by Loll; made from 100 percent post-industrial recycled plastic; $349 at Room and Board.

Below: New England series B85 Chair for Royal Botania by Pierre Stelmaszyk; made of teak painted white; $1,595 from Unica Home.

Below: Michigan-based Jebred Furniture makes painted poplar Adirondacks available in a dozen colors, ranging from pale pink to hot lime. Chairs are $260 each.
