Is a type of chair that is preferred in rural and outdoor settings. Thomas Lee designed it in 1903. He was on holidays, and in those days he visited New York and Westport. There he felt the lack of outdoor chairs for his summer. For a chair plan, after cutting from a single board, the original chair was made with eleven wooden pieces. It had a straight back and seat, which were set at an angle to sit better.
The squat style chairs with heavy backs that were carved like a piece of paneling gave way to taller, more slender and elegant chairs. The framework of these chairs were less carved and new directions were taken as far as how these chairs were ornamented. Cabinet makers of the Restoration began to take advantage of the opportunities given to them to design these new chairs. Chairs began to take on an elaborate construction with graceful semicircular ornaments that connected all four legs by a vase shaped knob in the center. The arms and legs of the chairs of this period were scrolled with the splats of the back containing a rich arrangement of spirals and scrolls.
