Not everyone knows...

... that what we all know as the Muskoka chair, for the reason that nearly every cottager has or had one on their docks, is actually known in other parts of North America as the Adirondack Style Chair.
The Adirondacks are the northern regions of New York State, a six million acres of natural landscape where in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century the most prominent families came to build their expansive summer retreats, also known as the Great Camps built with the region's natural resources. And that is where the Adirondack style was born, and the origin of one of our favourite chair.

Try building your own just like this gentleman built his own Muskoka chair
