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.
The standard Adirondack chair measures 32 1/4-inches wide and 38 1/4-inches deep, and 35-inches high. Although the price of a standard Adirondack chair will vary from one maker to another, typically a price tag of $250 would be considered reasonable. Best of all, the Adirondack chair will last years and years if taken care of properly.
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.
Adirondack chairs are named after the Adirondack Mountains, where the chair of was invented. The Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake, New York exhibits the history of the Adirondack chair.
