Adirondack furniture definition

A type of American furniture featuring a rustic flair that was manufactured from around 1898 to the early 1940s.  The furniture was popular with the owners of resorts, summer residences and camps of the Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York, and was thus dubbed with its name because of its popularity from that area.  The furniture was primarily made in Indiana, and was marketed throughout the United States.  Most of the furniture was made up of chairs and sofas, though tables and hat-racks and other items were created along its style as well.  Later, in the 1930s and 1940s, its style was influenced by the current styles, and it shifted from its original look and feel.
