There are key features that define the Adirondack bench. These features are the backrest and seat constructed at a slant and the wide armrests (which is the characteristic feature of the chair). However, Adirondack chairs can be very expensive, depending upon the type of material which is made from. Thankfully, there are Adirondack chair plans available which will enable individuals to build their own chairs.
The Adirondack remains a popular piece of furniture for outdoor use. However, the chair has gone a long way since its humble roots as a seat for "rural settings". The very first chair was designed in 1903 by Thomas Lee for the use of his family while on holiday in their summer house in the Adirondack Mountains. Later on, Lee shared the design with a carpenter friend in Westport named Harry Bunnel.
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.
Seeing the marketing potential that the chair has, Bunnel secured a patent for it in 1905, behind Lee's back, and dubbed it the "Westport Chair". Eventually, Lee was recognized as the chair's creator and was since called the "Adirondack chair". Nevertheless, thanks to Bunnel's underhanded tactics, the Adirondack chair has emerged as one of America's most beloved furniture creations.
