History of the Adirondack Chair

If you were to travel to Blue Mountain Lake, New York, you would come across a very unique museum called the Adirondack Museum. According to experts that run this museum, the Adirondack chair originally went by a different name - Westport chair, which was after a small nearby town nestled in the Adirondack Mountains. Thomas Lee first created the design of the Adirondack chair in the early 1900s. Determined to develop a chair that would be appropriate for both indoor and outdoor use, as well as a chair that was highly comfortable, he started to work using standard boards and nails.

He completed his prototype, asking family and friends for their honest opinion. Although the design looked anything but comfortable, the consensus was that this chair was actually very comfortable. Today, the Adirondack chair is still one of the number one choices, often associated with beachfront property, seating around a swimming pool, or sprawling lawns. Regardless of where you place your Adirondack chair, you will not be disappointed with your choice.

While the Adirondack chair offers many wonderful qualities, the slated boards and big, wide armrest are what most people think of first. Take the armrest for example, which is especially nice with its wide, angled design. With this, you can easily set down a cup of coffee or glass of ice tea while sitting back to relax on a cool Sunday morning or hot Saturday afternoon. Because of the unique design, Thomas was able to secure a patent in 1904. For the next two decades, several variations of the Adirondack chair were created based on the original design.

Probably the greatest aspect of the Adirondack chair is that again, it is extremely comfortable. In addition, considering the high quality of the design and the overall efficiency, this chair is also very affordable. Typically, adirondack chairs are made from natural wood and then painted white. However, today you find many more exciting colors, perfect for enhancing any yard or home. Although the basic Adirondack chair is a favorite, you might also consider the Adirondack lounge chair, which reclines or perhaps a double Adirondack chair for cuddling.

If you enjoy spending time outdoors or indoors, the last thing you want is a hard, uncomfortable chair. However, with the Adirondack chair, you know with all certainly that you are getting the very best. Completely handcrafted, you will enjoy the country, nautical look. Keep in mind that the Adirondack chair looks great anywhere, adding a nice touch of class. The curved back and seat are truly amazing with a design that literally wraps around the body. No other chair can match the style and innovation found with the Adirondack chair. Best of all, when cared for properly, the Adirondack chair will last years and years.
