Cape Cod or Adirondack Chair
The Cape Cod or Adirondack chair was originally designed by Thomas Lee in 1903 while on vacation in Westport, New York. He wanted suitable outdoor chairs for his home in the Adirondack Mountains. The chair was made from eleven pieces of wood, all cut from one board, with a straight back and seat, angled for the steep mountain inclines. The armrests became a feature of the Adirondack chair.
Today's Adirondack chairs with their flat armrest are perfect for cafes as the armrests serve as supports for coffee cups!
