Broken Family

"The broken family". Daddy has left the Cul-de-sac.


In 1905 Bunnell patented this chair plan and called it the Westport, not the Adirondack. Bunnell, what were you thinking?


Guaranteed, no splinters in the booty with this fine chair.


The word Adirondak or Adirondack is an Anglicized version of the Mohawk latilontaks (ratirontaks) 'they eat bark', a derogatory name which the Mohawk historically applied to neighboring Algonquian-speaking tribes. Still, better than crapirondak which means "they eat poo".


The original Adirondack chair was made with eleven pieces of wood, cut from a single board and had a straight back and seat, which were set at a slant to sit better on the steep mountain inclines. It also featured wide armrests which became a hallmark of the Adirondack Chair and a fantastic place to balance a Tom Collins.


The chair, itself, was not common until the 16th century. A piece of furniture for sitting with a seat, a back, and sometimes arm rests - seems self evident?

The first Adirondack chair was designed by Thomas Lee in 1903 while on vacation in Westport, New York. Does that say something about the excitement of Westport as a vacation destination?
