Adirondack Double …
An infamous and instantly recognisable design – times two …
Little did Thomas Lee know when, in 1903, he designed what he intended to be, ‘the perfect outdoor chair,’ for him and his family at their Summer Home overlooking the Adirondack Mountains what a sought after design it would become.
He made the prototype from 11 pieces of timber cut from a single piece of wood and this is what caught the attention of his carpenter friend and hunting partner, Harry Bunnell.
It isn’t confirmed, but the presumption is that Bunnell patented Lee’s design, called it The Westport Chair and sold it for his own commercial gain.
We presume the hunting trips stopped pretty soon after that.
The term Adirondack Chair is reportedly supposed to have been coined by the staff at a Care Home for tuberculosis patients overlooking the overlooking the Adirondack Mountains who bought the Lee’s design from Bunnell on the basis that it was perfect for their residents to sit outside in and soak up the medicinal powers of the clean mountain air.
Who knows, but whatever the story it’s a damn fine chair that’s hugely popular today …
This Chair Set is made from A Grade Teak and includes a lovely little Teak Side Table and two Teak Ottomans for the ultimate in outdoor relaxation and style.
It is well documented that teak is far superior to other timbers for use in outdoor furniture because of its dense, oily qualities.
And all our Adirondacks are hand crafted using mortice and tenon joints reinforced with teak dowels for that long lasting quality not found in other, cheaper brands of furniture.
Did you know that in Canada it’s called the Muskoka Chair?
But that’s another story?
