History of the Adirondack Chair

The original Adirondack chair was designed by Thomas Lee in 1903 when he was on vacation in Westport, New York and needed outdoor chairs for his summer home. He tested the first designs with his family, and the chair, named after the surrounding Adirondack mountains, was originally crafted with eleven pieces of wood, cut from a single board.

It had a straight back and seat, which were set at a slant to sit better on the steep mountain inclines of the area. It also featured wide armrests which became a hallmark of the Adirondack chair.
