What Satisfied Customers Are Saying

Merry in Mendocino, CA
By Phyllis from MENDOCINO,CA on 8/30/2014
These are so great!!! They're so much heavier than my other pair made out of Eucalyptus...easy to put together and a real deal for the money!
Great product - Great return policy
By Suzanne M from DAYTON,OH on 8/30/2014
We ordered 2 chairs and one had a support piece that was not drilled properly. When I called I was helped immediately and was surprised that I did not have to pack the chair back up to return. They just sent a replacement which we received in a couple days. My only concern was I thought I had purchased a chair that folds for storage. (I had even asked the person who helped with my order that question). My husband was thrilled with the quality and look of the chairs! He already recommended the product to a friend.
Great value
By Zuba from Houston Texas on 8/28/2014
Just purchased this set. Delivery was very fast and arrived in good condition. Assembly was easy and everything fit as intended. It has been mentioned in a few reviews that the finish is light so I decided to add two coats of Teak Oil before using. This applies easily and adds good depth to the wood grain. Chairs are very well made and very comfortable. I am very happy with this purchase and with all aspects of dealing with Hayneedle.
cedar adirondack chair
By Helen from LULING,LA on 8/25/2014
I was totally surprised that this was so easy to assemble. I put it together and got my husband to put the screws in with a screw gun for the finishing work. Could of done it myself but since he was there I let him do it. Looks great on my front porch.
So far so good!
By Andrea from ARLINGTON,MA on 8/25/2014
Just got these and they are nice. Easy to put together. Lets see if they stand the test of time... They are a bit narrower than a standard Adirondack chair, so pay attention to the dimensions. (They are not narrow...they are just narrowER than some.)

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.

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).
