Adirondack furniture history goes
back over 100 years to the 1870's in the Adirondack Mountains of New York.
Camps were built as tourist sites and the small huts and furniture
were created with local timbers. The little huts that were built
were often decorated with the twisted branches, branches and
logs. Tables, chairs
and rockers were made to match that natural style and became known as
Adirondack. Adirondack furniture became very popular as people
began to buy their own vacation property and built their own
cottages. Franklin Roosevelt had all the chairs and tables in
Yellowstone National Park changed to the Adirondack style too.
Reminiscent of days gone by,
Adirondack furniture is still very popular today and is seen all over
America on lawns and patios. It is crafted from different wood and
is available in several colors.
It has unique advantages; after decades of use it is easy to find a
new replacement for the chair or rocking chair you always loved, it's
the same as it always has been for 140 years, made of durable wood and
amazingly comfortable. It's a piece of American furniture history!
