Adirondack Chair

Definition: Adirondack Chair


Named for the Adirondack Mountains in New York where it was invented, these outdoor chairs are made from slatted wood with wide armrests ideal for resting drinks. A traditional Adirondack has a seat that slopes down in the back, presumably to make it more comfortable while sitting on hillsides.

The original Adirondack chair was designed by Thomas Lee in 1903 while he was vacationing at his Summer home. Nowadays, the chairs often come with matching footstools and can be made with vinyl or other synthetic materials.
