Outdoor Furniture: Wood or Recycled Plastic?

Last updated on March 16th, 2020 at 07:31 am

Recycled Plastic Outdoor Furniture | Polywood
If you’re shopping for wooden outdoor furniture this season, you’ve probably noticed there are a lot of new faux wood furniture sets, made from recycled plastic. Shown here is the POLYWOOD Euro dining set. It has the look and weight of wood but lasts longer and doesn’t require any maintenance.

Why Recycled Plastic Instead of Wood?

When customers asked us to start carrying outdoor furniture naturally we searched for a real wood product. However, while there are weather resistant species such as cedar, teak, eucalyptus and redwood that make fine outdoor furniture, we still worried about the longevity of the furniture, maintenance, and the environmental impact.  While researching high end outdoor wood furniture we discovered recycled plastic lumber (RPL) made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE).  Also known as Poly-Wood, it looks like real wood & has the heavy weight of real wood plus it’s durable, versatile and environmentally friendly.

Copeland Contour Collection: Mid-Century Modern Bedroom Furniture

Last updated on May 28th, 2019 at 09:32 pm

Heirloom Quality & Retro Design:  Our New Mid-Century Modern Bedroom Furniture Collection

Mid-Century Modern Bedroom Furniture fans often have a hard time finding Mid-Century pieces that are truly high quality, solid wood designs.

A simple search on google or Pinterest might bring up thousands of stores and pieces for you to sort through, but many of them are cheaply made and designed only to be used for a season or so.

For those who love the nostalgic Mid-Century style but also appreciate timeless design and craftsmanship, the search can be daunting.

Our Copeland Contour Bedroom furniture, however, is heirloom quality and built to last a lifetime. It is crafted with real solid wood, making it the obvious choice for both value and style.

The Contour Bed features a solid, continuous ribbon of walnut hardwood wrapping around the outside of the mattress and slatted headboard. Just like the Contour Bed, Contour case pieces have gracefully softened curved corners and edges–reminiscent of traditional Mid-Century Modern Bedroom Furniture. Each case piece is strikingly complete with an Opel laminated glass top which contrasts beautifully with the dark tones of the walnut wood. This entire set is finely crafted in Vermont using sustainably harvested wood.

Its exquisitely curved corners, rich American Black Walnut, and sleek, clean lines exemplify streamline Mid-Century modernism. This collection effortlessly melds contemporary style with minimalist design, providing the perfect modern-day bedroom oasis.

So what do you think? Would you add the Contour collection to your space? Let us know in the comments section below.

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.

Copeland’s Audrey Modern Dining Set: Now Available in Cherry Wood

Last updated on March 13th, 2019 at 05:49 pm

Copeland Audrey Modern Dining Set | Real Solid Cherry Wood | American Made
Copeland’s Audrey dining furniture has a mid century modern (MCM) design.  It’s handcrafted in Vermont from solid cherry wood that’s  harvested sustainably.  Shown above with Copeland’s MCM Estelle chairs.

A Mid Century Modern Dining Set

Interior designers, home decorators and everyone who loves a simple, minimalist esthetic in the dining room: take notice of Copeland’s Audrey mid century modern dining set.  We rolled out this popular collection in early summer, but at the time it was only available in walnut, a dark wood.  Now it’s available in real solid cherry wood, a favorite among our customers.

Audrey has a simple, modern, utilitarian look but it’s elegant and  sophisticated at the same time.  The dining table has an “X” shaped trestle base that allows for lots of leg space.  Customize the size online to accommodate small, medium or large dinner parties.  Make your dining area more adaptable by choosing the Audrey Extension table.   You’ll love the way the butterfly-style extra leaf self stores so easily under the table top.

The Audrey table looks great with any of Copeland’s dining chairs.  It’s shown here with the Estelle chairs — very MCM and ergonomically designed for comfort.

After a stressful day at the office who doesn’t want to come home and melt into a comfortable cradle, drifting off to sleep in style?

Copeland’s high end Monterey Bedroom Furniture Collection updates traditional Arts & Crafts style with a modern Japanese touch.

Handcrafted in real cherry hardwood, the Monterey Bedroom set is made to order and can be customized online in your choice of natural cherry, windsor cherry, autumn cherry, congnac cherry, saddle cherry and smoke cherry wood stain. The platform bed can also be customized with an upholstered headboard in your choice of 5 different microsuedes and 3 leathers.

Storage Bed

Copeland also offers a Monterey platform storage bed which features four 8″ deep, under-bed storage drawers that provide plenty of stylish storage– now essential for small apartments. Nightstands are designed to allow easy access to the storage drawers– it’s great furniture for small spaces.
