Amish Originals Furniture Co.: Signs of Spring
The Adirondack chairs appear in front of Amish Originals Furniture Co.!
During spring, summer, and fall, and from dawn to dark, Amish Originals Adirondack chairs become a regular part of Uptown Westerville life - folks sit down to enjoy a cup of coffee and the morning paper, watch the traffic and chat for a while, take a break while walking the dog, and enjoy an ice cream cone from Graeter's on a nice night.
An icon for summer comfort and relaxation, the Adirondack chair is a uniquely American design, developed in the early 1900s by Thomas Lee. Just a regular guy, Mr. Lee took the DIY route, creating indoor/outdoor comfortable seating for his friends and family at his summer cottage near Lake Champlain in the Adirondack Mountains in northeastern New York.
Lee built several versions of his "plank chair" and field-tested them on his friends and family. The slanted seat & back and wide armrests had purpose - so the chair rested comfortably on uneven rocky and woodsy terrain (so even on a slanted surface, a person felt upright and comfortable) and wide arms are a perfect place to set cool drinks and good books
Great for backyards, man caves, porches, lakeshores, and beaches, Amish Originals outdoor furniture options include chairs, coffee tables, accent tables, gliders, swings, footrests, and rockers.
With simple maintenance, classic outdoor furniture from Amish Originals Furniture Co. will continue to offer comfort and style season after season.
We like the tradition behind Mr. Lee's plank chair - so we encourage you to stop by both Amish Originals Furniture Co. locations at 8 and 38 N. State Street in Uptown Westerville and sit a spell!
