all these great images, they are actually pretty uncomfortable to sit in for any length of time. But I love the ambiance that they create in my head. Their name doesn't exactly roll off your tongue, and most people you ask couldn't tell you what they are called but have sat in them sometime in their life. The story goes as such, they originated in 1903 or so, in Westport New York, near the Adironack mountains by a man, Thomas Lee, going though hard times, trying to make enough money to get through the winter. They were really popular in the early 1900's and are instantly recognizable. I hope my photo of the Adriondack chairs along the water's edge will take you to a peaceful place in your thoughts, while you are sitting in your own comfortable chair somewhere.
