The truth is: plastic garden furniture, such as plastic Adirondack chairs, can be beautiful, natural looking, stylish and may be the perfect option for many people. Furniture constructed out of recycled plastic polymer, as is the case with many plastic Adirondack chairs, is resistant to moisture, corrosives, chlorine, salt water and insects. It is also sturdy and comfortable, and will remain looking new for several years.
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.
Individuals who own or have rented summer homes most likely have seen Adirondack chairs. These chairs were the creation of Thomas Lee way back in 1903 for his and his family's enjoyment in the Adirondack mountain range. Lee then shared the chair's design with his carpenter friend Harry Bunnel, who underhandedly secured a patent for it behind Lee's back. Despite its inauspicious origins, his invented chair today not only epitomizes the outdoor life, it has earned the distinction of being a truly American creation.
No one knows when they became Adirondack chairs, but the name undoubtedly came from the chair's popularity in the Adirondacks in upstate New York. The very first ones were crafted from a single piece board cut into eleven pieces of wood. That was one long board.
