Make a design statement on your patio this year with an Adirondack Garden Chair. Garden furniture that is the ultimate in style, comfort and practicality with over 100 years of heritage.
The precursor to today's Adirondack chair was designed by Thomas Lee from Westport, upstate New York on the fringes of the hilly area called the Adirondacks and it was called – not surprisingly, the Westport Chair. He set out to design a rugged , stylish comfortable chair that was perfectly suited for outdoor use and.... and he succeeded magnificently.
In the 1920's the chair lost the single wide boards of the original design when slats were favoured and this modification enabled shape to be applied to the chair. These practical alterations improved the comfort and the name of this modified chair became more widely known as the Adirondack Chair rather than the Westport Chair, however, the core design features of the seat frame, the sitting angle and the wide arm rests have remained the hallmark of the original Thomas Lee chair.
If you sat in an Adirondack Chair on a summers day in the Adirondack region of upstate New York you could be looking across Lake Champlain; equally you could enjoy your garden, good company, a glass of wine and a good book in the comfort of your own Adirondack chair right here, in the slightly less hilly, UK. These chairs don't improve the view but can improve the pleasure you get from your environment. Made to the original specifications but with ergonomic modifications for even greater comfort.
We have now added inbuilt or free standing leg rests (Ottomans) to the Iconic range and included a folding table product as well. We have not added cushions to our offerings but when we find a few appropriate cushions on the web we occasionally have a menu item pointing to them.
