When Thomas Lee of Westport, N.Y. created the Adirondack chair all he wanted was a comfortable chair for his country cottage. Little did he realize so did so many other people then and now wanted that perfect comfortable chair.
When you get an Adirondack chair, you purchase history, a classic, and a design meant to last the elements of New England.
As with all great innovations, they continue to get better. The materials used to build the chair has changed, in addition to wood, they are now available in Polywood or plastic. The design of the chair has also has changed. It maintains its integrity, but now you can add to your outdoor sitting areas variations of it; tete a tetes (two chairs with a shared table), loungers, folding, and Adirondack chairs with upright backs.
