What Satisfied Customers Are Saying

GORGEOUS Adirondack chairs
By Deborah Anne from Marianna,FL on 1/13/2015
Wow! We're so pleased. These are the nicest Adirondack chairs I've seen. And SOLID! They are well designed, made of a good wood and look great. They should be easy to care for with a rub down of Linseed oil 3 or 4 times a year. Also, we'll not have to worry about the wind moving them around or blowing them over - they are HEAVY. As we live in the north central panhandle of Florida, we had to have something for the deck that could stand up to the weather, especially rain as it will blow all the way across the covered deck. I'm 5' 3" tall and my husband is 6' 1" tall and we both find them very comfortable. It took us less than an hour to put them together - so they were easily assembled. The back and seat come pre-assembled and the only tool we needed was a pair of pliers to hold the bolts steady for tightening once the chair was completely assembled. I don't see how anyone could be disappointed - the chairs are GORGEOUS! ~~ deb

We ordered two of these for our porch. We were so pleased with them, we ordered two more. They are very useful inside or outside plus they fold down for easy storage.
Great Chairs, Great Price
By ConstantineG from ForkedRiver,NJ on 1/7/2015
These chairs were affordable and easy to assemble. They look great too. Only issue was we received some broken peices but the staff at hayneedle took care of this quickly.

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).
