Adirondack Chair History
by Clarks Outdoor Chairs

The chair is named after the northeastern New York State Adirondack Mountains. The area is 6.1 million acres of preserved rugged mountain forest park land that receives hundreds of thousands of visitors each year. But the name is all that connects the Adirondack chair to this mountain region, according to the Adirondack Museum in New York state, because they say the exact birth place of the Adirondack chair is still a mystery. A“The immaculate conception" is how Craig Gilborn former director of the Adirondack museum describes the chair's inception. "It just adds to their allure," he says. Still many feel the Adirondack chair may have evolved from the older Westport Adirondack chair which somewhat resembles the more common Adirondack chair, but has certifiable Adirondack roots. The main difference between the two chairs is the Westport chair is constructed with large wide boards while the more traditional Adirondack chair is constructed with smaller board slats. When you consider the two features that are considered hallmarks of a true Adirondack chair; the raked slanted back and the large broad armrests and the fact that the Westport chair has a slanted back and wide broad armrests then it is easy to see why the older Westport chair could very well have been the original Adirondack chair. One thing is for sure, regardless of the uncertain Adirondack chair history it has become an American icon that is seen across the entire United States.

The documented Westport chair story begins in the year 1903. A man named Thomas Lee, while on vacation with family and friends at his summer cottage in Westport, N.Y., a small village about 10 miles east of the Adirondack mountains on the shores of Lake Champlain, began to work out a design for some outdoor chairs for them to use. The chair Mr. Lee designed and built had a slanted seat and back design, something that had already been in use for the unleveled Adirondack mountain ground. The slanted chairs allowed people to sit in an upright position when placed on a steep hill. This made it possible to sit comfortably looking down the mountains because no one wanted to sit looking up the mountains. Undoubtedly, there were many variations of hill sitting chairs around the area, but the one Lee designed is the chair in the record books. Mr. Lee had no idea that his chair family members called "Uncle Tom's chair" would be anything more than some comfortable chairs for his summer home.

The Westport chair may have never been documented if Mr. Lee had not offered his chair design to his hunting friend Harry Bunnell. The reason Mr. Lee did this was to help Harry make some money. Turns out Harry was broke and feared he would not make it through the winter. Trying to be helpful Lee suggested he take his chair design and build it at his home carpentry shop to sell to the locals. But as it turned out, Mr. Bunnell had more in mind and saw the chair Lee designed as a way he could make a future living. After doing some planning, Bunnell took the chair design and filed for a patent on April 4, 1904. Later, on July 18, 1905, Bunnell received his patent for the chair he called the "Westport Chair". Sadly, he never told his helpful friend Thomas Lee anything about applying for a patent nor did Mr. Lee try to do anything later after he learned he received one. Nevertheless, Bunnell became successful manufacturing and selling the chair for the next twenty five years. He built all his Westport chairs with Hemlock or Basswood, stamped them on the backrest with his U.S. patent number, painted them a dark red brown or left them unpainted and introduced several different variations (improvements you could say) over the years. His choice of Hemlock wood might seem odd because it is not a naturally durable wood nor is it considered a very suitable wood for furniture, but it was and is still readily available in the New England States area. The chair never became wide spread as it never reached distribution further than a 100 square mile radius of Westport, New York. Even today, it still does not have the wide acceptance of the Adirondack chair, yet an original antique "Westport chair" that meets certain conditions can be valued at more than one thousand dollars.

Where did the Chattahoochee Adirondack chair come from? The Chattahoochee Adirondack design came about when a Georgia carpenter named Dave Vidic decided to build a southern version of the Adirondack chair. He made his chair look similar, but I am guessing he did not see the need to sit on a mountain hillside in the south. Therefore, he made the chair sit in a more upright position with four normal straight legs rather than the long sloping back legs. For this reason we call our

Easy-to-Build Adirondack Furniture: Storey's Country Wisdom Bulletin A-216 (Storey Country Wisdom Bulletin)

Building Adirondack furniture is a time-honored craft. Sturdy and rustic, this furniture can be a beautiful addition to any indoor decor, although it's most often used to set the scene outdoors. There, the furniture is subjected to a lifetime of abuse. Yearly it moves from somewhere hidden away (probably dark and musty winter storage) to front-and-center on the summer stage. Now, hour after hour it is beaten on by intense UV light, drenched in driving rains, then fried again in the summer sun.

Through it all, the furniture patiently endures--ever handsome, ever inviting, ever lasting. To survive summertime abuse and the semiannual ritual of being dragged into and out of storage, outdoor furniture must be sturdy, rugged, and well built--all qualities that epitomize Adirondack pieces.

This bulletin contains instructions for building an Adirondack chair, matching footstool, companion side table, and Westport chair (an ancestor of the modern-day slatted Adirondack chair). Each project will take the moderately skilled carpenter less than a day to fabricate; for the beginner, maybe a weekend.
Learn how to choose the right lumber and hardware, complete with instructions for table, footstool, and the Westport chair.
