Even though the price of the beach or pool chair may seem a little higher than other furniture, remember you are buying a handcrafted chair that is made with the finest materials, made for the outdoor environment. Therefore, when cared for properly, the Adirondack chair will last for years. Therefore, the chair is well worth the investment. Keep in mind that you can do a few things to keep your outdoor chair in tip top shape.
The Adirondack chair, originally called the Westport chair, was designed in 1903 by a man named Thomas Lee. Every summer, Lee and his 22-member family traveled to a small town on the coast of Lake Champlain called Westport, New York. Stony Sides, their home in Westport had a serious outdoor furniture shortage.
A good view isn't essential, but it doesn't hurt either. You don't have to have a view of the mountains to enjoy the comfort of your chairs. If you have a nice backyard or a front porch, the view will do nicely. You can add some plants and decorative touches to your space that have a rustic quality to them. Planters, country art, a settee and some small accent tables should fill the bill.
According to AdirondackChairs.com, the Westport chair's popularity spread throughout the region. Unfortunately, its area of fame never went beyond 100 miles from Westport. Over the next twenty years, Bunnell created different variations of the Adirondack, including tete de tetes and kid's Adirondack chairs.
