After settling on a design, he hired a local Westport Carpenter named Harry Bunnell to make a set of the chairs. Impressed by the design, Bunnell saw the commercial potential and began selling the chairs to Westport’s other visitors. Unfortunately, he… forgot… to ask Thomas Lee’s permission to sell the chairs. Bunnell filed for a patent on the design, and received one in 1905, despite not actually designing the chair. Bunnell sold the “Westport chairs”, made of Hemlock, for the next 20 years. Typically he would paint them green or brown, and he sold them directly to buyers.
Otherwise we would also recommend considering synthetic resin furniture. Plastic wicker furniture made from HDPE is UV resistant and can withstand high temperatures as well as cracking and peeling. It’s also much more comfortable to the touch when exposed to direct sunlight. .

In designing this chair, I felt it was important to keep the integrity of the original chair design, with the tapered back support. Since I, and many fellow Canadian cottagers, prefer to paint our chairs in bright colours, it was also important that there was sufficient space between the folding parts, yet keeping the structural strength.
My husband and I were not sure what we wanted around our fire pit and decided that we love Adirondack chairs, but we wanted without the maintenance. A search online connected us to Levi and Amish Made Poly. We called in the evening and we were surprised to get Levi. He emailed pictures of colors, was able to create exactly what we wanted and has followed through to make sure we are happy. We are so happy with our chairs and side tables and with Levi and his team. They are perfect and exactly what we were looking for!!
This chair is fairly comfortable, which is important! It features a gently curved back, which makes prolonged sitting in the chair much more pleasant than sitting in chairs without a curved back.
I used the plastic washers and tubes (highly recommend) and cedar boards but will try clear pine next.
Absolutely. There are certain materials that hold up better in specific climates and others that don’t. So it’s good to be aware of what works best in your area.
The verdict is that I would buy the polywood again. It is sturdy and durable. However, the design of the chair itself is not good. I ordered two of these and I had them put together in less than 45 minutes on my own! I am not handy at all so that should tell you something. They included a T handle hex key that is way better than those awful tools most companies put in their kits. Awesome chair and I couldn't be happier.
Concerns over deforestation may have you rethinking the traditional wood Adirondack chair. If you want the look of wood without the environmental impact, a high-quality polywood can be almost indistinguishable from natural wood. Polywood doesn’t require the maintenance of wood and can hold up in extreme weather conditions. Recycled plastic is another option that offers a colorful addition to your backyard.
Poly lumber is maintenance free, weather resistant – bacterial growth or mildew resistant, will not crack – split – rot or splinter, UV Stabilized to prevent fading and made in the USA.

Should you decide you don’t like the color of this chair, you could consider painting it, but then you’ll have to maintain the paint. Should you want to paint, start with a high-quality exterior primer, and follow an exterior paint like Benjamin Moore’s Regal Select Low Lustre. Be sure you remove all the steel fasteners before you paint, as you don’t want to get paint on the fasteners.
