Adirondack Chairs - How to Choose One
In Blue Mountain Lake, New York, you will find a unique museum called the Adirondack Museum. According to the experts that run this museum, the Adirondack chair was originally called the Westport chair, named after a small town located nearby Adirondack Mountains. The design of the chair was first created back in 1900 by Thomas Lee. On a mission of designing a chair that could be used indoors or outdoors and one that was overly comfortable, he began his work, using standard boards and nails.
After creating his prototype, he asked family and friends to see what they thought and while the Adirondack chair does not look like the most comfortable choice of chairs, they were surprised that it was actually quite comfy. Today, the Adirondack chair remains a popular choice often associated with beachfront houses, big sprawling lawns, or screened patios. However, the Adirondack chair makes a wonderful addition to any home or yard.
The style of slated boards and the big wide armrest are what made Adirondack chairs well known and that style remains popular today. The armrest is especially nice in that it is wide and angled so you can easily set down a cup of coffee or glass of lemonade while relaxing in the shade. The patent for the Adirondack chair was provided in 1904 and over the following 20 years, the manufacturer made several variations of this one style.
The nice thing about choosing an Adirondack chair is that again, they are extremely comfortable and for the quality and efficiency, very affordable. Most Adirondack chairs are natural wood or painted white but more and more, new colors are coming available. You can also choose from the basic Adirondack chair or go with an Adirondack lounge chair that reclines easily or even a double Adirondack chair, perfect for cuddling with someone special.
If you love spending time outdoors or indoors, you will need to make sure you have a good, comfortable chair, which is exactly what you will get from an Adirondack chair. This particular chair is often handcrafted, providing a one-of-a-kind country look. The Adirondack chair adds a real touch of class. The curved back design and seat are made to wrap around the body, something you just do not get with any other type chair.
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.
