History of Adirondack Chair

At Manchester Wood we pride ourselves on recreating and honoring the history of Adirondack chairs. Our hardwood folding Adirondack chair is it’s refinement.

History of Adirondack Chair
Manchester Wood’s first Adirondack Chair, 1984-85.

The History of Adirondack ChairThe first Adirondack chair was designed by Thomas Lee while vacationing in Westport, New York, in the Adirondack Mountains in 1903. Needing outdoor chairs for his summer home, he tested his early efforts on his family. After arriving at a final design for a “Westport plank chair,” he offered it to a carpenter friend in Westport in need of a winter income, Harry Bunnell. Bunnell saw the commercial potential of such an item being offered to Westport’s summer residents, and apparently without asking Lee’s permission filed for and received a U.S. patent in 1905. Bunnell manufactured hemlock plank “Westport chairs” for the next twenty years, painted in green or medium dark brown, and individually signed by him.

Originally the chair was called the Westport Plank Chair, but was renamed the Adirondack Chair after the mountain range Westport is located in; the Adirondacks.

The style has also been adapted to other types of furniture, such as swing gliders and love seats.

Adirondack Chair - Manchester WoodOwn a Manchester Wood folding Adirondack Chair? Here are 3 simple steps to get it ready this spring!

Our classic folding Adirondack chair is made of American hardwood and finished with a rugged weather-resistant acrylic paint. However sometimes maintenance is necessary in keeping this authentic solid wood outdoor furniture piece in top condition as the seasons pass. So this spring, as you bring your Manchester Wood Adirondack chairs out to greet the warmer weather, here are a few simple steps we recommend.

  1. Clean by wiping any accumulated dirt or dust off from storage with a solution of warm soapy water and a soft cloth.

  2. Rinse thoroughly with clean water and dry thoroughly too.

  3. Does it need a touch-up? Our high quality Adirondack chair was finished with an exterior paint from Sherwin-Williams.  If you need to touch-up any of your pieces visit the Sherwin-Williams store nearest you and tell them you need a high quality exterior acrylic paint. The original color can be matched there.

And lastly, enjoy it! We hope the warmer months ahead bring you many great memories on your deck, dock, or patio this year in our Adirondack chairs. Be sure to check out our entire Adirondack collectionyou’ll find new dining sets!
