Adirondack Chair Appeal
Adirondack Chairs first began with a single chair created in 1903 from a man vacationing near the Adirondack mountains. He needed a chair that could be placed along the steep mountainside while still allowing him to sit and enjoy the view. His chair design included the slanted seat and back that have made Adirondack Chairs unique in their construction. The slanted seat allowed for comfort and proper seating along steeper inclines. This precursor to the Adirondack chair even included the wide armrests, which is considered a hallmark of the chair's design.
Adirondack Chairs sit close to the ground, which in recent years has caused an increase in beach popularity. Many people enjoy placing their chairs and lounge chairs near the shore so that when the water laps at them they can feel cooler without having to commit to the full body swim. Adirondack Chairs are popular in cafes and backyards because the wide armrests serve as a small table, allowing room for food and drink. The design has also moved into gliders, rockers, children's furniture, and even folding chairs. Colors vary fromtraditional brown and white to vibrant reds and yellows.
