What Satisfied Customers Are Saying

Soild Construction!
By Jeffrey from MONROE,CT on 9/11/2014
Very happy and bought a second set!
Perfect for coastal living
By Barbara from Bodega Bay, CA on 9/11/2014
Great quality and comfort for sitting on the deck and enjoying the surf and sunsets. I would have given a 5 star rating except that I ordered 2 chairs and the color didn't match. Not enough to send them back and I'm sure they will weather over the course of time.
Sturdy and attractive
By Richard from FALLBROOK,CA on 9/11/2014
The ottoman went together quite quickly and snugs up nicely against the Adirondack chair.
Well made table
By Margaret from CHAPEL HILL,NC on 9/11/2014
This table is easy to put together and very functional. It seems durable and will work on my screen porch. I do think the quality is slightly less than perfect as one of the pieces that you screw in doesn't sit perpendicular (in a 3-dimensional sort of way).
LOVE this chair cushion!
By Sena from GREENSBORO,NC on 9/11/2014
This chair cushion is of much better quality than I expected. Without the cushion, the backs of our chairs are soooo uncomfortable. The cushion is thicker and provides more resilient support than it looks like in the picture. The size and shape are perfect. I'm beyond happy with this product!

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).
