The Adirondack chairs is living legend of outdoor furniture … If you think of typical lakefront home in a cottage with a large porch from which to admire landscape, a sunset view from a jetty, sure visualize in them an Adirondack chair , though not even know his name.
But what is special about Adirondack chairs? Surely functional and simple beauty, devoid of artifice or pretentious elements … Simple wooden planks form its slightly reclined back, and his deep, inclined and comfortable seat as well as long arms and proportionate designed for relaxation. Legs are short and you approach ground while you look to horizon.
In short, it is something special between designers chairs, a position especially suited to enjoy scenery … So I do not want to put pictures of Adirondack chairs around a low table garden, since I am convinced that this is not function for which it was conceived design. Adirondack name is apparently a mountain in upstate New York, near which was a sanatorium. They noted that patients lay there in these seats to take therapeutic mountain air.
But before Adirondack chair had another name, chair Westport , where it was registered patent for design … In Canada, however, it is known by two names: chair Muskoka in honor of area where many Canadians spent summer in one cottage or “Laurentian chair” (chaise des Laurentides) among those living in Quebec.
