Adirondack Chair: 3 Steps To Ready Yours This Spring

April 8, 2014

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!

“Adirondacks from the Adirondacks…” our folding Adirondack chairs have a story all their own. And it began right in our mills backyard in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains, Lake George. “While taking boat rides on the lake, ‘the boys’ and Cliff (our founder) would pass by various old family estates that had Adirondack chairs on their property set by campfire pits or on sprawling front yards and, most iconically, on docks. A friend and neighbor at the lake lent Cliff one of his Adirondack chairs to study and reference for dimensions. Thus began our company’s development of folding Adirondack chairs.

Adirondack Folding Chairs

Our first production-run Adirondack chair from the 1984 Chicago Housewares Trade Show

The chair given to Cliff was extra large and made out of softwood. The design had a lot of support pieces and very wide arms. The back of the chair was comprised of many narrow slats. It was also very low, so when you slid down into the seat, it was comfortable, but hard to get out of! So Cliff and the company woodworkers set about improving on the design. Early on it was decided that the chairs should be foldable. Easy storage was a key feature in Cliff’s mind as he had seen too many prematurely weathered and dilapidated chairs on the docks and shores of Lake George. Unlike bulkier designs that were a hassle to move and took up too much space to store inside easily, the folding design did not take up as much space and encouraged customers to keep the chairs inside over the winter.

The initial design developed by Cliff had slats that were all the same width, including the seat legs.  The chair featured narrower arms in an effort to keep the price competitive with similar wood furniture pieces imported by foreign manufacturers. When all was said and done, Cliff had reviewed over 10 different styles of Adirondack Chairs from the Lake George area…” read more from this article on the back-story of our famous folding Adirondack chairs published by our friends L.L.
