Adirondack Design + Decor

Cabin style in the U.S. has been strongly influenced by designers in New York’s Adirondack region. The talented designer of Adirondack camps, Harvey Ellis, in 1903 referred to his Adirondack designs as “decorous shelters … mediators between the individual and nature.” His work employed vertical and horizontal log walls, limbs and twigs, bark, local stone, and antlers. The character of nature was also the foundation for Adirondack furniture design and light fixtures. Nature was brought indoors for a more engaging rustic experience of camp life under a roof and next to a roaring fireplace.
