History

Back in 1903, or so the story goes, a man wanted to build a truly comfortably  lawn chair to furnish his summer home in the heart of New York State's Adirondack forest preserve.

Thomas Lee began nailing pine boards together; testing each style he designed on the members of his family. The chairs were all designed using a single pine plank and featured wide armrests that have become the hallmark of the Adirondack style. After arriving at a final design for the "Westport plank chair," he offered it to a carpenter friend, who was in need of a winter income.

Harry Bunnell quickly realized the chair was the perfect item to sell to Westport's summer residents. Without apparently asking Lee's permission, Bunnell filed for and received a patent in 1904. Bunnell manufactured his plank chairs for the next twenty years. His chairs were all signed and made of hemlock. Original colors were green or a medium dark brown.

From here in the Adirondack foothills, we design our solid furniture for hours of comfort with closely spaced, narrower slats... contoured backs and seats... and the traditional wide armrests. Besides our Adirondack chair, we also offer snuggle up versions for two, and smaller sizes for kids.

So, take a look and let us know what we can create for you today.
