The first Adirondack Chair

Did you know that the first Adirondack chair was designed by a chap called 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 an "Adirondack 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 U.S. patent
