An Adirondack Chair Was Your "Most Shopped" Product in April, and We Think We Found Its Even-Chicer Sister

It might not have a cupholder or an ottoman, but the modern design of this sleek Adirondack captivated us instantly. One of the best Way Day buys, without a doubt!

Ladies and gentlemen, it's 75-degrees Fahrenheit in New York and you know what that means — summer is finally here. I know I might be getting ahead of myself ever-so-slightly, but I can't help it; the minute it's warm enough to comfortable walk outside without a jacket, my mind shifts into beach mode.

Of course, as a style editor for an interior design website, that also means I'm spending a lot of time thinking about the best outdoor furniture and the best outdoor furniture sales. There are some excellent finds out there right now, you just have to know where to look. Case in point? The viral Amazon Adirondack chair I tracked down a few weeks ago. That baby was one of your favorites, dear reader, seeing as it garnered plenty of clicks from you and your design-obsessed counterparts.

And now, I'm back with yet another Adirondack-related find, only it's much more chic and, most importantly, included in the Way Day Wayfair sale. Oh, and did I mention there is free shipping?

Adirondack chairs are so timeless. Their relaxed and instantly recognizable design has been a staple of summer bonfires and backyard lounging for decades — so why mess with a good thing?

Well, Wayfair private brand AllModern may have actually managed to update this classic design in a way that complements the original while still reinventing the proverbial wheel.

The Ratcliff Resin Adirondack Chair, linked above, defies expectations as a piece of affordable and accessible patio furniture. And by that I mean It's chic, it's design-forward, and it's customer-loved. To be clear, I've never seen it in person, but I'm inclined to trust the overwhelmingly positive word of 1,253 consumer reviews.

From a design perspective, I'm drawn to the angled rectangular back panel, a departure from that quintessential arched look, as well as the low-profile, close-to-the-ground structure. This specific chair is also moisture-, weather-, insect-, and fade-resistant with built-in UV protection, so you know it's ready for a few months out in the heat.

How long is the Wayfair Sale?

This year's Way Day sale runs from May 4 to 6, but the discounts will come back around again in the fall for Way Day Part 2. Those dates aren't announced yet, but we will totally circle back once we have them.

In the meantime, though, this is definitely the best time to splurge on big-ticket home items until Black Friday or the other fall sale, when the holidays are just around the corner.
