This table is very well built and easy to put together....I got the red one.....it says to use a UV protectant on it....I'm in the process of trying to find one...if it would of said that and had one available I would ordered it with the table.
Very pleased with this product
By Mary C. from NORMAN,IN on 4/19/2014
Product was just as described. Shipment was super fast. Assembly was a not difficult. Be aware when you purchase that there are no back legs to this style of Adirondack Chair. Hence, the chair sits a little lower than other Adirondack designs. For me this is not a problem, but might be a consideration for others. Based on this experience and other products I've viewed on this site, I will be ordering more items.
Adirondack Chair
By Diane from SAN JOSE,CA on 4/19/2014
Chairs and table arrived in a timely fashion and undamaged. My son in law assembled them for me. One of the chairs needed to have a couple of holes drilled and some adjustment work on the arm rests. Fortunately my son in law is handy so he was able to do it without a problem.

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).
