What Satisfied Customers Are Saying

Beautiful Adirondack Chairs
By Michelle from PRAIRIEVILLE,LA on 10/18/2014
We are so pleased with these chairs. I purchased them for my husband's birthday and he loves them. I wanted a natural colored ones because I wanted to stain them myself. I wish I could post a photo of how pretty they look next to our pond. Thank you so much!
The wife loves it!

That's all that matters. No assembly required.
Really Nice Chairs for the Money
By Diane from GRAY,TN on 10/14/2014
These chairs are sturdy and easy to assemble. They have some variation in color, but it makes them look interesting. I ordered them for the fire pit. They're the perfect height for my fire pit. They are surprisingly comfortable. The smell was very strong when they arrived, but after sitting outside for a couple of days, that has all gone away. For the money, they are just fantastic. Just what I was looking for.

Still great after 4 years!
By Go Outside from Anacortes, WA on 10/13/2014
These are fantastic chairs and well worth the money. You just need to oil them at the end of summer, before the rains come. We have used them for 4 years now and they still look great! We only bring them in during the winter.

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).
