What Satisfied Customers Are Saying

Fantastic
By Lisa from Dallas,TX on 4/14/2015
So pleased with these. After two sets of wood adirondack's that fell victim to the elements and fell apart, we finally splurged on these folding Polywood versions and am so happy we did! Highly recommend.
Outstanding Quality and Very Affordable
By Charles from FlaglerBeach,FL on 4/11/2015
These Adirondack chairs are extremely well made, are designed to be very comfortable and should last a lifetime. They are made of dense heavy wood stock and treated in linseed oil. Hayneedle service was outstanding delivering the set in just two days. A fantastic buy costing less than the cost of building them yourself.
Great quality Belham Ottoman
By Barbara from Onawa,IA on 4/11/2015
This ottoman is great quality for the price. It was easy to put together and was so smooth it did not need to be sanded prior to the painted finish to match my chair. I bought the chair years ago from Hayneedle and need another ottoman.
Love my Chairs!
By Marilyn from OMAHA,NE on 4/10/2015
I bought 4 of these chairs and planned to paint them all along - so they worked perfectly for me. But if I were planning to let them weather naturally I would have found the number and size of knots in the wood concerning. Some of them were in the arms of the chair. They are not advertised as "KNOT FREE" so expect them. They are very sturdy and went together easily. They came smooth and prepared for paint.
Great value for the price
By William from Saint Augustine, FL on 4/10/2015
Ordered 2 of the curved back Adirondak chairs and the deluxe side table, first of all I did the upgraded FedEx shipping for $7 and the items were delivered to me in 2 days, I'm very pleased with that. One box had a tear in it but no damage to the chair. Assembly was very easy but I'm a DIY kind of guy, only issue I have on assembly is I think they should include washers for the nut side of the attachment bolts but I'll pick them up at the hardware store, very easy to add. I did think it was humorious the instructions said to put a towel down to protect the finish when assembling the chair when the chair is shipped unprotected inside the box and the pieces are loose, no big deal though. The tongue oil finish is good but not great but anyone that has applied an oil or stain finish knows oil isn't absorbed the same on all wood, I will be applying a second coat in the near future. Not a big deal to me. As far as comfort, I'm 6'3" but wanted a low chair and didn't want to use an ottoman, this chair is perfect for me and very comfortable. If you have problems getting up from low chairs look at another version. Bottom line, I think these are an excellent value but if you're expecting a elegant product right out of the box I think you'll need to spend a bit more money. I'm very pleased with the fit of the woodwork, they're well worth the money I spent for them.

History of Adirondack Chairs

There is a little town on the edge of Lake Champlain, by the Adirondack Mountains, called Westport. The first Adirondack chairs were named after this town - Westport Chairs. In Blue Mountain Lake, New York, the Adirondack Museum proudly preserves the Adirondack chair's interesting history.


Trial and Error
Each summer in Westport, New York, a man named Thomas Lee enjoyed time with his large family. Stony Sides, the home this family occupied, had a shortage of patio furniture and Lee felt he could not find relaxation. In 1903, Thomas Lee began nailing boards together in his front lawn, crafting new chair designs for his 22-member family to sample. History proves that with all of this feedback, Lee created a unique new chair with a slanted seat and well-recognized spacious armrests. Lee's family whole-heartedly approved.


Harry Bunnell
Thomas Lee knew a carpenter who owned a modest shop in town. Lee showed his new creation to the carpenter, Harry Bunnell. Bunnell predicted that the yearly residents flocking to the region during the summer would really appreciate Lee's chair. Although Lee originally intended the Adirondack chairs to make his family's summer stay at Stony Sides more pleasant, Bunnell saw the potential for great profit. In 1904, Bunnell requested a patent, calling the Adirondack chair the Westport chair. In the summer of 1905, and without Lee's knowledge, Harry Bunnell secured the patent for what would become one of the most recognized outdoor furniture pieces ever.


Success
Harry Bunnell's Westport Adirondack chair became popular all around the region. Over a twenty year period, Bunnell experimented with some variations on the original, including child Adirondack chairs and tete-a-tetes. Bunnell's Adirondack chairs were made of hemlock, painted in either dark brown or green, and signed by the carpenter himself. Today, Bunnell's original chairs come at a hefty price, about $1,200 each (Bunnell sold them for around $4.00).
