The Adirondack Chair most commonly referred to as the Muskoka Chair, has become a well-known symbol of cottage country. The chair pioneered by Thomas Lee back in 1903, received a patent in 1905. During the early years of production the chair consisted of hemlock or basswood and was only available in brown or green. The Muskoka Chair has to grown to encompass numerous colours and varying mediums. BigRedWorks Inc now offers Muskoka chairs made of 100% recycled plastic in 15 gorgeous colours!
Every wonder why we are called Big RED Works and not Big Blue or Big Green?
The May 24th long weekend isn’t all about consuming a 2-4 of beer, but is in fact a celebration of Queen Victoria’s birthday. Victoria Day became a popular holiday in Ontario in 1845 and a national holiday in 1901. In the 1900s it was referred to as the Empire Day followed by Common Wealth Day, but is now known as Victoria Day or May long weekend. This weekend marks the beginning of the summer season with travel as a common theme. As the roads are packed we are all hoping the sun is shining at our home away from home – Honey Harbour and the surrounding areas.
