The order came so quickly (ordered Wednesday night and it arrived on Saturday). We are priming and painting all now. Can't wait to have it around our new firepit!
Nice, little table & the price was right
By Tina from OMAHA,NE on 12/11/2014
Nice table, easy assembly. Only complaint I have is there are 16 screw holes & only 12 screws, also while the legs have pre-drilled holes, the table does not.
Great set of Adirondack Chairs
By John from Elk Grove,CA on 12/8/2014
Arrived on time, and was easy to put together, looks great on the deck
Easy to Assemble, Great Looking
By Matthew from Towson,MD on 12/7/2014
Been looking at purchasing Adirondack chairs for some time now but have been holing out for a good deal. Stumbled upon this set at a great price. Just put it together and so far it looks and feels great. Also, these shipped and arrived very quickly. Only a couple small mishaps: the hardware pack in one of the two boxes split open and the hardware was all over the inside of the box (was able to find all but one washer which may have slipped out of the box) and not all of the predrilled holes lined up perfectly. Both of these were easily remedied. All in all, this seems to be a good product for the price.

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).
