Take a Seat! Adirondack Chairs Project

During our recent Traveling Herb Seminar to the Morris Arboretum, one of the featured exhibits was of the favorite summertime Adirondack chair. Thirty different artists were asked to re-interpret the classic chairs. This link will provide additional information about this fun garden art:
Take a Seat! Adirondack Chairs reinterpreted

All styles, shapes and colors were represented, including the Mosaics  below.

The landscape scene on the chairs to the right reminds me of the old French Masters.  And below, the towels, blankets and parasol are made from recycled garbage bags.

It was such fun to stumble upon a new set of chairs as we wandered through the large arboretum.  Nice to have a place to sit for a moment too!

I love the creativity on these chairs. I have two Adirondack chairs that are just stained a mahogany color, but seeing these makes me want to get creative and try something new. Thanks for sharing the link and these photos!

These chairs just say "summer" to me!

The mosaics are my favorites, and now you've set me to thinking how we might get a teapot design on an Adirondack chair!
