How to Choose the Perfect Adirondack Chair

Adirondack Chairs | Polywood Why Polywood? We have a thing about longevity and keeping stuff out of the landfill. Polywood is the only outdoor furniture we can confidently offer a lifetime guarantee for. Plus it's made of recycled milk jugs-- 500 in each chair. So instead of buying furniture that's made from illegal rainforest wood, you're keeping plastic waste out of our landfills. How awesome are you?

Summertime & the Livin' Is Easy

June is here and you've never been so happy to put all those April & May showers behind you. It's time to sit outside and relax in the sun with a cold drink and a good book. If you don't already have a comfy Adirondack chair, it's time to get one. There's tons of them out there so here's a quick guide to help you find the one that's just right for you.

Traditional White Or a Pop of Color?

White Adirondack Chairs | Polywood Polywood's Classic Folding Adirondack Chair is one of my favorites. How classy is this white conversation set? And you'll never have to scrape or paint because Polywood color is solid throughout the boards.
Red Adirondack Chairs | Polywood Need a pop of color in your sanctuary? These red Adirondack chairs will do the trick. They have a built in ottoman that slides underneath the seat when not in use. "Adirondack chairs are destination furniture, one-person resorts you put in your yard," Wayne Curtis, Yankee Magazine, June 22, 2009.

Original Style or Modern Contemporary?
