In 1904, Bunnell requested a patent for Lee's chair, naming it the Westport chair. He was awarded a patent in the summer of 1905 and started to make and sell Westport chairs. Bunnell did not ask Lee for his permission to sell his chairs, and did not even tell him he was applying for a patent.
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.
Adirondack chairs are a popular choice for garden and patio furniture. Thomas Lee who was seeking ways to furnish his summer home invented Adirondack chairs in the early 1900s. He utilized materials that he found around his vacation home, located in Westport, NY. His design impressed a local carpenter, and the Adirondack chair became popular all over the country. The Adirondack chair had eleven slats of wood and wide arm rests. The seat and back were angled to allow better positioning on the Adirondack mountain terrain.
The unique construction of the Adirondack chair makes it perfect for outdoor use. The seat and the backrest have been designed to provide maximum comfort regardless of the type of surface. In fact, these chairs can be easily set up even on slopes. The latest chair styles come with slotted back legs so that you can adjust the inclination of the backrest. Adirondack chairs have become visible fixtures around swimming pools, giving swimmers a comfortable spot to get a tan under the sun or to just sit and relax while reading a good book.
