If you were to travel to Blue Mountain Lake, New York, you would come across a very unique museum called the Adirondack Museum. According to experts that run this museum, the Adirondack chair originally went by a different name - Westport chair, which was after a small nearby town nestled in the Adirondack Mountains. Thomas Lee first created the design of the Adirondack chair in the early 1900s. Determined to develop a chair that would be appropriate for both indoor and outdoor use, as well as a chair that was highly comfortable, he started to work using standard boards and nails.
So Lee decided to take matters into his own hands. He started creating new chair designs by nailing boards together on his front lawn, asking his family members try them out. The Lee family picked a chair with a slanted back, a slanted seat, and wide arm rests.
While the Adirondack chair offers many wonderful qualities, the slated boards and big, wide armrest are what most people think of first. Take the armrest for example, which is especially nice with its wide, angled design. With this, you can easily set down a cup of coffee or glass of ice tea while sitting back to relax on a cool Sunday morning or hot Saturday afternoon. Because of the unique design, Thomas was able to secure a patent in 1904. For the next two decades, several variations of the Adirondack chair were created based on the original design.
Most Adirondack kits are convenient to assemble. A kit consists of the necessary parts, complete instructions, and the necessary tools. Even people with little to no handyman skills can put together these chair kits with relative ease.
