Naturally we wanted to look for a real wood product when we decided to start carrying outdoor patio furniture. However, while there are weather resistant species such as cedar, teak, and redwood that make fine outdoor furniture, we still worried about the longevity of the furniture, maintenance, and forest conservation. Conserving the environment is at the core of our mission and is a key factor in our decision making process. While researching high end outdoor furniture we discovered a material known as recycled plastic lumber (RPL). It is both durable and environmentally friendly, so we knew we had found our product.
Using recycled plastic lumber in place of regular wood for outdoor furniture has several important environmental advantages:
POLYWOOD® salt-resistant, all weather outdoor patio furniture is made in America and is beautiful, sturdy and maintenance free. It will stay strong and look like new season after season. In fact, we back it with a lifetime guarantee.
POLYWOOD® is not to be confused with the typical thin injection molded plastic furniture manufactured offshore that is sold by the big box stores. POLYWOOD® is a thick, dense plastic product that replicates high quality tropical lumber in dimension and strength. For instance, a POLYWOOD® Adirondack chair would be cut and assembled just like the wood versions with the only difference being the use of RPL, “recycled plastic lumber”.
This solid recycled plastic POLYWOOD® lumber is produced from long-lasting, high-density polyethylene (HDPE):
The raw material for POLYWOOD® is primarily composed of recycled plastic bottles, such as milk and detergent bottles and other HDPE post-consumer and industrial wastes. These containers are then cleaned and decontaminated to a high purity level. Lastly, it is compounded into a rigid board stock material which won't absorb moisture, rot, splinter, or crack.
POLYWOOD® outdoor patio furniture offers superior weathering resistance without the water proofing, painting, staining, and other maintenance required by solid wood outdoor furniture. This innovative luxury outdoor lawn and garden furniture is recycling at it’s very best! Need more reasons to buy POLYWOOD® furniture from us?

Care for your all weather POLYWOOD® recycled plastic outdoor patio furniture is easy! All you need is a sponge or soft bristle brush and gentle soap and warm water. Make it even easier by using a high pressure washer (do not to exceed 1,500 psi). If needed, use a 1/3 bleach and 2/3 water solution to remove stubborn stains without damaging the color.
The hardware used in the assembly and construction of your poly wood furniture is an 18-8 commercial grade stainless steel that has an additional "Xylan" protective and cosmetic coating. Although the hardware is highly resistant of corrosives, salt can corrode the hardware over time if the air is particularly salty, so be sure to wash the hardware too. If necessary, use a soft tooth brush to scrub the corroding areas of the hardware. We recommend the use of touch up paint in the appropriate color to protect poly wood hardware if you see any corrosion beginning to set in. Appliance touch up paint can be purchased at local hardware stores.
Sunbrella fabrics should be cleaned regularly to prevent dirt, pollen and food particles from accumulating. Regular cleaning of your outdoor cushions will eliminate the need for more frequent vigorous cleanings.
Whether we’re doing a micro-vacation after work in the back yard or heading to Lake Champlain for the weekend, the Adirondack Chair is considered essential equipment in Vermont.
We love getting customer comments, feedback and suggestions about our American made furniture, especially when the reviews come with photos attached. Today we’re sending our thanks out to Katie B who recently received her Polywood Presidential Outdoor Rocking Chairs:
Elegance, cool sophistication, and a fresh simple look are just a few ways to describe the new Bayline Collection from POLYWOOD. Pair with our Euro style table, and you’ve got the perfect outdoor dining furniture setup for your porch, patio, or other outdoor space.
When we sat down on our Classic Adirondack chairs chairs today they looked and felt like new. That’s because they’re made using an innovative new technology that takes recycled plastic drink containers and transforms them into plastic lumber that’s more durable than real wood.
Now that you've decided to buy polywood, you're looking for the best deal. This kind of high quality furniture isn't cheap. Thus, where to go for the best price?
Although we love the warmth and integrity of real wood, it's is increasingly being seen as inappropriate for outdoor, all weather furniture. The main issue from an environmental standpoint is durability and longevity.
