As a compliment to the my original Full Size Adirondack Chair, I have designed a Settee Kit to join 2 chairs together. This can be accomplished by building two new chairs from scratch, or joining 2 chairs that are already assembled. Simply remove the adjacent inside arms, join the chairs with 4 boards, then cut out the parts from the templates. After assembly, you will have a comfortable settee, with an extra wide center arm, and a matching lower shelf for magazines or plants. Some settee's I find too wide, and don't seem to match the rest of the chair. The slats in this kit match the size of the two seat slats on the chairs, and the curved arm pieces match the outer arms of the chairs. The front and back edges of the shelves, are also curved to match the proportions of the chairs. I have added an 8' market umbrella to my settee, which provides shade as well as protection from light rain.
Dimensions - 67"W x 37"D x 38"H (170.2cmW x 94cmD x 96.5cmH)
