The history of the Gorgeous, Timeless Adirondack Chair
The Adirondack chair design has a somewhat controversial history with the Thomas Lee/Harry Bunnell design being touted as the original and as a design that has been used the world over for comfortable and approachable outdoor relaxation chairs.
Some might say that there are more Adirondack chairs currently in production which follow the “improvements” made in 1938 by Irving Wolpin, who filed for a different patent by modifying the original 11 plank Adirondack furniture design patented in 1905. These improvements on the design included a rounded back on the chair and a seating surface that was contoured for more comfort.
Some believe William West Durant was influential (or that he himself designed the chair) due to his early adoption of the Westport style chairs in his father’s venture in developing the Adirondack Mountains as a resort. These chairs were named after the town of Westport in New York, where it became popular as a chair to be used by vacationers in the area. Originally there was some conflict involved in the ownership of the design, as it is believed that Thomas Lee had the design stolen by Harry Bunnell.
Why Teak makes sense for the Adirondack Chair
Adirondack chairs were designed to endure a relatively harsh climate in the Adirondack Mountains, while maintaining the rustic and organic feeling of the surrounding land. This rustic style was simple, but had a heavy focus on relaxation and made the user more likely to stay seated and enjoy the outdoors. Adirondack chairs have always been outdoor furniture; commonly found on porches, in clearings near a cabin or lodge and in designated entertainment or relaxation areas just outside the home.
Teak is the optimum outdoor material to ensure long lasting looks and integrity. The natural qualities of teak wood make it a weather resistant material and the density and makeup of the wood keeps it looking good and maintains the structural integrity for much longer than other woods. As you look through the competition in the outdoor furniture industry, Adirondack chairs are typically made of cheap soft woods, or woods that aren’t as naturally weather resistant as Grade-A Teak. Frequently, you’ll find consumer reviews that point out the short life of the materials or the paint that covers the wood. With Teak, you don’t have that concern. With proper maintenance you could ensure that the light golden honey color remains if you like that look; or you can watch as the teak wood ages gracefully to a nice silvery grey patina and takes on an even more rustic appearance.
