Everything You Need To Know About Adirondack Rockers
Relax…get comfortable with an Adirondack style rocker. The Adirondack rocking chair comes in many colors, and you’re sure to find a chair to suit you at Hayneedle. Adirondack chairs and subsequently Adirondack rockers were invented during the early 1900’s by a vacationer looking ways to furnish his Adirondack retreat. This original Adirondack wood chair, was made of eleven slats of wood, had broad armrests, and was distinctive in that both the seat and back were slanted so that it would sit better on the steep Adirondack mountain terrain.
As with any popular design, designers and craftsmen soon began putting a spin on the Adirondack model, such as doubling it in size, adding rockers to make a rocking chair, and adjusting the shape and design of the back. Today, rocking chairs are manufactured in quite a few woods: pine, oak, cedar, mahogany, cherry and teak. Most Adirondack rocking chairs come unfinished.
