Why POLYWOOD®?

Why are they called Adirondacks?

In 1903, Thomas Lee designed the first prototype of this chair to accommodate guests in the rugged terrain of his summer home in the Adirondack Mountains. His original wooden chairs featured wide arms, straight backs, and slanted seats, which have stood the test of time. While initially called the Westport chair, it gained popularity in upstate New York, eventually becoming known as the Adirondack chair we recognize today.
