The Keene Rustic Cedar Old Adirondack Chair is a wonderful rustic addition to any home. Made of durable white cedar (the traditional wood for Adirondacks) it offers charm along with usability. Cedar is naturally resistant to decay and insect damage. Its old-time look adds a sense of grace and history to your living room porch or patio. You can stain or paint the chair to your desired color or let it naturally weather to a silvery gray. And you will appreciate the craftsmanship of this chair too. Built by hand this chair uses mortise-and-tenon joinery techniques and is constructed in the USA in small batches. The cedar is collected from nearby swampy marshes and milled on site. Ships partially assembled. Approximately 30 minutes assembly time.About Old Adirondack FurnitureThe Old Adirondack Furniture Company traces its beginning to Flat Rock Camp one of the Great Camps of the Adirondack Park in operation around 1880-1929. Prominent industrialists and their families would retreat to these cool northern camps to escape from the summer heat of New York City Philadelphia and Boston. A foreman at Flat Rock Camp took the opportunity in the off-season to reproduce and refine the original Adirondack chair which became the basis for a furniture operation crafting rustic wood furniture.From this small beginning the furniture operation outgrew Flat Rock Camp and moved to the Grange Building in Willsboro then to a vacant horse nail factory in Keeseville N.Y. Today Old Adirondack operates a modern 25000-square-foot production facility not far from that factory near its Willsboro roots. Despite the company’s expansion and development Old Adirondack furniture still carries the mark of reliable American quality and authentic Adirondack style.
