What is so special about the Adirondack chair?

Google says it’s explicitly designed for hours of lounging, the legendary Adirondack chair makes it almost impossible not to relax or even doze off completely once you’ve settled into its high back and reclining, backward-sloping seat resting close to the ground. The design that we know today was named after the Adirondack mountain range in New York.  The Canadians call it a  Muskoka chair. I just call it Comfortable.
