When it comes to following trends, seating is not always the first thought that comes to mind, but vintage seating is making a comeback in a big way. Gone are plastic chairs and gaudy seats. In are timeless masterpieces that provided generations before us with endless comfort. What was once considered outdated and drab has been revived, and is turning the interior and exterior design world on its head.
The word “vintage” elicits different responses in different people. The word itself denotes something of high quality; a prized possession at one point in time. While some think of vintage as old, moth-eaten hand-me-downs, others envision exquisite pieces that come with historical tales of a different time and place. Love it or hate it, vintage furniture is making its way back into the hearts and homes of many, and is being used to transform their living spaces.
One such piece making a comeback is the Adirondack chair. This timeless addition was first designed by Thomas Lee in 1903. While on holiday with his family that summer near the Adirondack Mountains in Westport, he saw there was a great need for more durable outdoor seating that would allow his loved ones an opportunity to gather together in their gorgeous surroundings in the lap of comfort and style. Inspired by the natural beauty around him, he went on to design and create what he originally called a “Westport plank chair”, after his love for the great holiday spot.
The chair was originally made with eleven flat wooden boards, featuring a straight back and seat, with wide armrests. Its design would later be modified by Irving Wolpin to feature a more rounded back and seat for optimal comfort. The chair was a huge success, not only with Lee’s family, but it also quickly became one of the most desired outdoor seating products by other holiday-makers in the area. It was renamed the Adirondack chair by and before long, his family seating experiment became a world-wide outdoor seating must-have.
