Do you have an Adirondack on your patio? For many residents of upstate New York, the Adirondack is a must have item and for good reason: this is the region where the chair was invented. Back in 1903, furniture designer Thomas Lee was on vacation in Westport when he realized he didn’t have anything comfortable to sit on in his backyard. A few sketches, some sawing and hammering and voila, the Adirondack chair was born. His original version of the chair was made from eleven pieces of wood that were cut from a single board. These slats were the straight back and along with the wide armrests they became the hallmark of the Adirondack design.
Lee offered his chair to Harry Bunnell, a local carpenter looking for work. For the next twenty years, Bunnell made quite a living building his version of the Westport plank chair. His even autographed his original creations and today they are among the most coveted pieces of modern craftsman furniture found anywhere.
Today, the Adirondack chair is a staple of many a backyard patio. Although designed to withstand the elements, a weatherworn Adirondack can become a bit of an eyesore. If the paint is peeling and the wood splintering it will also be extremely uncomfortable to sit in. Do you have some Adirondacks in bad shape? If so then it might be time to swap them out for new models. Of course, it’s going to be extremely difficult to toss out your old Adirondacks or any other big patio furniture.
