The Round Pond Deck Chair

Solid sapele adirondack chairs, custom built for enjoying the view in Asbury Park, NJ.

This past summer we had a client come to us after falling in love with a mid-century version of the classic Adirondack chair.  Unfortunately, the original builder had ceased production, so she came to us!  We took the original as inspiration, gave it a taller back, higher seat and crafted it from sapele, with dark wenge accent plugs.  A proprietary blend of spar varnish and oil was applied for a weather resistant finish that can be maintained seasonally.

Stainless steel hardware, loose tenon joinery and waterproof epoxy also help to ensure these chairs are strong enough to last years and years.

The “Round Pond” name comes from of one of our favorite spots on the Maine coast, a small lobstering town where it seems everyone has a comfy deck chair overlooking the local harbor.  We’ve spent many a happy evening there and this style of chair would be ideal for such a night.

These particular chairs will spend the warm months right on the water (along with a pair of matching tables) and hopefully bring their new owners many, many evenings of comfortable sunsets!
