Thomas Lee was the one who designed the first Adirondack chair. It was in 1903 while he was in the Adirondack Mountains and in need of outdoors chairs for his summer home. He later arrived at a final design and named it the “Westport plank chair”. Lee then offered it to a friend carpenter who went ahead and manufactured the chair for the next 20 years after receiving the patent for the design in 1905.
