Finally Found the Perfect Chair
By JJ Mac from Panama City, FL on 7/12/2014
These chairs are as nice and I think as good a quality as any we have seen anywhere. We can finally see over the railing and see the beach without a strain. Simply put, nice chairs and quite comfortable to.
Very nice chairs, but time will tell
By Rebecca from Amherst,NH on 7/11/2014
I bought these chairs mainly for the beautiful color and the clean style. I put them together myself in about ten minutes between stirring the pot making dinner. They are very sturdy, and weigh almost 45 pounds each, the table weighs in around 20. The coloring is inconsistent, which is to be expected and adds character, if you want completely uniform chairs buy something else. My only concern is that they are not cedar. They are made from a wood I had never heard of and after researching on outside sites, I decided to make the purchase and take the chance. If they are in fact red shorea, they should hold up in the weather according to all the sites I read, but if they are actually white shorea colored red, then odds are they may not hold up to the weather.
Quality Across the Board!
By Denise from OMAHA,NE on 7/10/2014
Quality ordering process, tracking/delivery, and product. I ordered two chairs to go with Coral Coast Richmond 4ft swing. Chairs and swing match perfectly! This was my first Hayneedle purchase~I cannot wait to order again! With this kind of service, price, and product, what's not to like?

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).
