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.
Making plastic lumber from recycled plastic uses fewer natural resources. POLYWOOD plastic lumber is made from recycled materials, making it an eco-friendly product.
It puts less demand on our forests, especially vulnerable tropical rain forests. Learn more about how even our solid wood furniture is made from sustainably harvested woods by visiting our page on forest conservation
POLYWOOD is an extremely durable all weather material that does not usually require any maintenance other than the occasional cleaning with soap and water, resulting in a reduced demand for harsh cleaning chemicals
POLYWOOD recycled plastic lumber is produced from HDPE, a long-lasting, high-density polyethylene. HDPE 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 recycled plastic lumber.
POLYWOOD salt-resistant, all weather outdoor patio furniture is made in America and is beautiful, sturdy and low maintenance. It will stay strong and look like new season after season. In fact, we back it with a lifetime guarantee.
No maintenance required other than simply washing with water
Impervious to harsh weather such as rain, snow, ice, and salt water
Heavy (an average chair weighs 40 pounds) so it won't blow away in strong ocean breezes
Resists corrosive substances, mold, mildew, oil, fuels, insects, salt water spray, and other environmental stresses
No toxic preservatives like those used with treated wood lumber
Available in natural colors, as well as white, black and a wide variety of popular contemporary colors
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.

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.

I recently wrote about why you should consider buying POLYWOOD outdoor patio furniture. After writing it and highlighting the benefits of investing in POLYWOOD, I wanted to show you just how diverse the POLYWOOD collections are in style, design, color and size.
I’ve created a list of 7 collections and/or pieces I love and I’m sure you will, too!
I remember my parent’s first outdoor patio furniture set. It was made of metal and painted white. It had a traditional “grooved” glass top and matching folding chairs that each had an overwhelming 90s floral pattern cushion. It was clunky and attracted rust. When my parents decided to move it to a different spot, they dropped it just hard enough that the entire glass top shattered into a million pieces.
Have you noticed that fine furniture is moving outside to luxury spaces around the patio, deck, fire pit, pool and even the beach? Why not? With advances in all weather outdoor furniture and Sunbrella deep seating fabrics, you’ll find high end club furniture like the POLYWOOD Club Deep Seating set shown above in all kinds of luxury spaces–outdoors and in.
Adirondack chairs are true staples of summer. They are comfy, colorful, and make the perfect lounging chairs for long days next to the lake or pool. (Or if you’re in the middle of Vermont like us, they make the perfect seats for kicking back and taking in the view!).
Our customers often discover us when they’re searching for American made, eco-friendly furniture. We’ve worked in collaboration with Vermont furniture makers for many years but have stuck to selling just sustainable indoor furniture for the dining room, bedroom and home office.
In Vermont, spring and summer slip by all too quickly so when winter finally rolls out of sight, we want to get outside and relax in the sunshine ASAP. And that’s where the beauty of POLYWOOD All Weather Porch Furniture comes in so handy. There’s no longer any need to go schlepping downstairs to the basement and dragging heavy outdoor furniture outside before you can relax on the patio in the warm sunshine.
