“Tiny House Nation” is a television program that features innovative Tiny Homes from across the United States. Renovation experts and hosts, John Weisbarth and Zack Giffin travel across America to explore creative small spaces and the imaginative folks who occupy them. They also help new families design and construct their own dream tiny homes! Houses can be no larger than 500 square feet, and include anything from micro-NYC apartments to caboose cars turned mini-roadtripping home. This series celebrates the Tiny House movement and its explosive growth in the United States!

We’re excited to announce that we have provided some POLYWOOD® outdoor dining furniture to the tiny home! Sustainable Living is a major part of our company, so when we saw that there was going to be an episode shot in Vermont we knew we had to get involved. Douglas and Dennis made the trip up to Montpelier to hand deliver the furniture and meet the crew. We had been waiting in anticipation to see the show on air, and we were thrilled to see the Vermont tiny home in action last night on the FYI Television network!

What do you think, could you survive life in a home less than 500 square feet?

Last updated on May 28th, 2019 at 09:12 pm

Outdoor Dining Furniture

The Bayline Outdoor Dining Furniture collection is our newest collection from POLYWOOD. We just launched it last week and we’re so excited about this new addition. It’s sustainable, casual, and the perfect outdoor dining furniture solution for the contemporary design lover. This Outdoor Dining Furniture collection incorporates modern styling with several bold, summery colors. The chairs feature a slender profile made of weather-resistant aluminum, paired with a selection of durable weather-resistant outdoor fabric options.

The sleek look of the Bayline collection and the usage of metal + fabric provide a chic alternative to POLYWOOD’s typical furniture styling. Four frame options are available in textured or satin finishes, with side and arm chair styles in two height choices for dining and bar usage. The arm details offered are plastique or solid.

This collection can easily accommodate any outdoor space style and layout. It’s an ultra versatile set, especially when complemented with the popular Euro outdoor dining table.

Bayline Outdoor Dining Furniture Color Options:

While most of POLYWOOD’s eco-friendly outdoor furniture comes in a variety of colors, this collection is striking in the use of colorful Sunbrella fabrics rather than RPL (recycled plastic lumber). This gives the collection a more modern, fresh look while still maintaining durability and weather resistance.

All Weather Adirondack Chairs: American Made & Guaranteed High Quality

Last updated on May 28th, 2019 at 08:21 pm

All Weather Adirondack Chairs by Polywood

Today was the first day of 2014 that was warm enough (for me, anyway) to eat lunch outside on the porch.  Hallelujah, Spring is finally here!  The sun is shining, the birds are singing and the snow has melted off our stoic all weather Adirondack chairs.  Yes we callously left them outside all winter long to endure the frigid temperatures, frost, ice and snow that only Vermont skiers can appreciate.

Long Island Adirondack Chairs | Made in America by Polywood | Recycled Plastic

But 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.  A company called POLYWOOD Inc, in Syracuse Indiana produces the furniture.  To tell the truth, we were looking for something Vermont made when we decided to start carrying high quality outdoor patio furniture.  But, after doing the research we fell in love with POLYWOOD for many reasons:

  • POLYWOOD is stylish, comfortable,  durable and environmentally friendly
  • The many colors (red, green, blue, yellow, orange, white, black and more) of POLYWOOD are imbued throughout the recycled plastic lumber (RPL) which means scratches don’t show up and no painting or maintenance is required
  • POLYWOOD has coated stainless steel hardware that’s rust resistant so the furniture can be left outside all year long
  • POLYWOOD reduces the amount of plastic in landfills and helps preserve rare tropical rainforest woods that would otherwise be used for patio furniture
  • More reasons to love POLYWOOD here
Kids All Weather Adirondack Chairs
Parents love POLYWOOD kids furniture because of it’s high safety rating and compliance with American manufacturing standards.  No worries about sharp corners,  lead paint or other toxins found in imported furniture.  Read more about child safety and outdoor furniture on our website.

Learn more about this versatile all weather Adirondack furniture on our website.  Customize POLYWOOD online in the styles and fade-resistant colors that match the decor of your porch, patio, poolside, deck or beach front.  Then rest comfortably all year long, knowing your American made outdoor furniture meets the high quality standards of our lifetime guarantee.

Adirondack Chairs: Essential Summer Vacation Equipment

Last updated on August 20th, 2014 at 11:20 am

Classic Adirondack Chairs | American Made by Polywood
If you want to feel like you’re vacationing at one of the Adirondack’s Great Camps, check our our Classic Adirondack Furniture collection.  These are pretty authentic replicas of the original Adirondack chair designed by Thomas Lee in Westport, NY back in 1903. 

Memorial Day weekend is the time we start thinking about where to go for summer vacation.  Summers are so beautiful (and short) here in Vermont, that many of us don’t go away for vacations.  We tool around here in the Green Mountain State… maybe taking occasional trips to the coast of Maine or other scenic spots around New England.

But 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.  So with the school year coming to a close and warm weather settling in (well, at least it’s forecast for the coming week), I thought I’d post a quick rundown of some of our most popular Adirondack chairs.  Grab a Long Trail or a margarita while you browse through the selection:

Classic Adirondack Chairs (above)

If you want to feel like you’re vacationing at one of the Great Camps of Lake Placid or Saratoga Springs, then you’ll have to check our our Classic Adirondack Furniture collection.  These are pretty authentic replicas of the original Adirondack chair designed by Thomas Lee in Westport, NY back in 1903.  Comfy and roomy, this outdoor furniture can be customized online in 7 different traditional colors:  teak, sand, mahogany, white, black, green and gray.  The collection includes a tete-A-tete group, a love seat, gliders, rockers, dining furniture and a folding Adirondack chair in addition to the chairs shown above.

Long Island Adirondack Chairs | Made in America by Polywood | Recycled Plastic

Customize South Beach chairs online in all 14 colors, including the vibrant blues, greens, red and yellow.  The chaise lounge in this collection is shared with the Seashell collection– as I don’t think you would want one any bigger (it weighs in at a hefty 53 pounds).

Eco Friendly Outdoor Furniture

Last updated on January 25th, 2020 at 08:50 am

For five years our customers have been asking us to offer eco-friendly outdoor furniture that meets the same high quality standards that our handcrafted, Vermont made indoor furniture does.  I’m sorry for the delay… we weren’t ignoring you.  We just had a lot of research and soul searching to do.

The issue with outdoor furniture is that the really high quality, solid wood furniture we were considering is of questionable origin.  Teak and mahogany are about the only types of wood that would meet our standards for weather resistance and longevity but they are both rainforest woods that are often harvested illegally and unsustainably.  Our company mission is founded on forest conservation principles and we’ve made the decision not to offer outdoor furniture made of rainforest woods.

After researching all the alternatives we selected a wood-alternative material for our first outdoor furniture line.  It’s called poly wood and is made of recycled beverage containers.  Instead of clear-cutting engandered rainforests to make our furniture, we’re taking plastic out of the waste stream.  We see that as a WIN-WIN situation for the customer and the environment.

Our Quattro 7-Piece Dining Set in Satin White/Sand

Have a look at our new outdoor patio furniture collection as it comes online.  We’re just starting the process of getting everything ready for the Spring season, but you can still get a good idea of what’s to come.  Let me know what you think of poly wood and whether you would consider it for your outdoor patio, deck or garden.  It’s not real wood, but it wears even better than wood– so well, that we’re able to give it a lifetime guarantee just like our indoor furniture.  It’s good stuff– check it out!
