Our Pledge to You- If for any reason your Adirondack / Muskoka Furniture does not live up to your expectations, let us know, and we will make it right

The Adirondack chair (or the Muskoka chair in parts of Ontario, Canada) is a simple chair made of wood or man made materials, generally used outdoors. Originally made with 11 flat wooden boards, it features a straight back and seat and wide armrests

The first Adirondack chair was designed by Thomas Lee while vacationing in Westport, New York, in the Adirondack Mountains in 1903. Needing outdoor chairs for his summer home, he tested his early efforts on his family. After arriving at a final design for a "Westport plank chair," he offered it to a carpenter friend in Westport in need of a winter income, Harry Bunnell.[1] Bunnell saw the commercial potential of such an item being offered to Westport's summer residents, and apparently without asking Lee's permission filed for and received U.S. patent #794,777 in 1905.[2] Bunnell manufactured hemlock plank "Westport chairs" for the next twenty years, painted in green or medium dark brown, and individually signed by him.

Modern Adirondack chairs usually feature a rounded back and contoured seat, modifications made by Irving Wolpin, who received U.S. patent #109239 for his design in 1938. Color choices have expanded from green and brown to red, orange, yellow and turquoise.[3] White, by far, has been the most common, in post war time, as it absorbs less solar heat in the hot, humid summers, at least on the east coast.

The style has also been adapted to other types of furniture, such as swing gliders and love seats.

In Ontario it is commonly known as the Muskoka chair, from the eponymous Ontario cottage area.

What makes Western Red Cedar the right building material for your outdoor furniture? Well, for starters, this highly revered, durable wood is naturally resistant to rot, decay and insect attacks, which means anything you build with it will last longer and require less maintenance. But wait! There’s more:

BEAUTY – Aesthetically, there really is no substitute for the natural beauty of Western Red Cedar. Imbued with decidedly crisp, yet superbly rich, tonal properties, Western Red Cedar can create sublime outdoor sanctuaries and embolden traditional home décor.

Imagine – all that dynamism packed into every piece of furniture we make! No wonder Western Red Cedar is a craftsman's dream come true.

VERSATILITY – Western Red Cedar is pitch and resin-free. Which means it’s ideal for accepting and holding a wide range of beautiful finishes including elegant dark stains and furniture oils.

Canuck Cedar Chairs use furniture grade 5/4 lumber (1" thick) in over 40 designs of chairs, rockers, gliders, and love seats. No matter what your desired result is, Canuck Cedar Chairs have the chair for you.

SUSTAINABILITY – Independent studies prove that when it comes to environmental performance, natural wood is superior to synthetics products in every way. While other building materials generate greenhouse gasses, Western Red Cedar actually removes greenhouse gasses from the atmosphere. And unlike brick, cement and composites, Real Cedar is renewable and biodegradable. Plus, Western Red Cedar is sourced from the most sustainably managed forests in the world. Western Red Cedar is grown and managed in the Province of British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest States in the USA.
