Recently, All Garden Benches added several Adirondack style chairs to its line of products. These quality, comfortable chairs are worth considering if you are looking for relaxing outdoor furniture. All Garden Benches featured Adirondack chairs are built and manufactured by Wood Country Furniture, one of our favored vendors. They are beautiful, strong, and perfect for outdoor living comfort. We decided to provide our customers with some insight into the history of the Adirondack style, and feature a few products that make use of this style.

The origin of the Adirondack chair – as with many great furniture styles – can be found in the phrase “Necessity is the mother of all invention.” In 1903 Mr. Thomas Lee was vacationing in the Adirondack Mountains of Wesport, New York when his “necessity” became apparent: he needed a comfortable chair with which to gaze upon the mountainscapes and enjoy the great outdoors. So, after several designs tested on his family, the “Westport Plank Chair” – as it was first called – found its core design. Once he was satisfied with the concept, Mr. Lee passed along his design to a carpenter friend named Harry Bunnell. Now, it is uncertain whether Bunnell obtained permission from Mr. Lee or not – but nevertheless, Bunnell immediately saw the commercial value in this new style and obtained a patent for the design. The next twenty years provided Bunnell with great success selling the Wesport Plank Chair, which was slowly renamed the Adirondack Chair – since so many customers began to associate the style with those beautiful mountain peaks of New York.

Today’s descendants of the Western Plank Chair, and the now universally known Adirondack style, usually features a rounded top back, contoured seat, and wide, flat arms – a favorite spot for a beverage. Because of the comfortable and laid back nature of the style, these chairs are used on patios, decks, beach homes, gardens, poolsides, riversides, and anywhere else there is need to enjoy the outdoors. The Adirondack style is made with a variety of types of wood – everything from cedar to recycled plastic lumber. All Garden Benches features the Adirondack chair in a variety of wood options and styles.
