Outdoor Furniture | Polywood Euro | Recycled Plastic | High End Patio Furniture
This year’s best selling outdoor furniture (so far) is the new POLYWOOD Euro Dining Furniture Collection.  Its a customizable, high end pool and patio set made in America with recycled plastic lumber and a powder-coated aluminum frame.

In Vermont we still have plenty of snow on the ground, but judging from the sudden increase in outdoor furniture orders, other parts of the country must be starting to experience signs of Spring.  Lucky you!

This year’s best selling outdoor furniture (so far) is the new POLYWOOD Euro Dining Furniture Collection.  Its a customizable, high end pool and patio set made in America with recycled plastic lumber and a powder-coated aluminum frame.

The Euro collection includes contemporary dining tables and chairs in three different sizes:  dining height, counter height and bar height.  You can customize the furniture with your choice of black, white or silver aluminum frames and bright vibrant colored POLYWOOD slats.  Choose from blue, teak, tangerine, red, sand, mahogany, lime, lemon, green, black, aruba, slate grey or white.  Something for everyone!

We’ll be using the Euro furniture and POLYWOOD’s Adirondack furniture at Stonehurst this summer and are looking forward to getting them on display.  Besides the beauty and comfort, what we like best about POLYWOOD outdoor furniture is that it’s really durable and weather-resistant.  No scraping and re-painting!  Plus, we can leave POLYWOOD outside during the winter, so no more lugging inside and out.  And who wouldn’t want to sit down outside and capture a few rays of sun during a beautiful winter day in Vermont?

Have a look at this European style outdoor furniture for the patio and deck and let us know what you think in the comments section below or on our Facebook.  It’s part of a new generation of light-weight outdoor dining furniture and we think you’re going to love it.

New Polywood Outdoor Furniture Set

With unseasonably warm weather in Vermont for the past few days, I have found myself longing for summertime. On top of the weather having me think that summer is around the corner, I have also been fully immersed in POLYWOOD Outdoor Furniture.

If you’re new to our blog or company, let me introduce you to POLYWOOD. It is our only line of furniture that is not made of hardwood, and for good reason. Most of the outdoor furniture you see at other stores are made from teak, redwood, or cedar, because they can withstand some outdoor conditions. However, there is a better material that outdoor furniture can be made out of, and that’s recycled plastic lumber. It replicates the texture (minus the wood splinters) and beauty of real wood, but is more durable to withstand harsh weather conditions.

We normally don’t go around promoting wood alternative furniture (we are Vermont Woods Studios, afterall), but there really isn’t anything better than POLYWOOD Outdoor Furniture. Not only can it withstand extreme weather conditions (including snow), but there is virtually no maintenance. With wood outdoor furniture, you need to reapply protective overcoats, stains, or paint, none of which you have to do to POLYWOOD.

This week Vermont Woods Studios has been busy putting up the new 2013 POLYWOOD pieces, sets, and collections. POLYWOOD Outdoor Furniture Sets are brand new in 2013!

A new collection that we have added is the POLYWOOD Coastal Outdoor Furniture. This exciting new collection is very different from our other collections of POLYWOOD. Unique to this collection is the sling fabric chairs. The sling fabric conforms to your body with firm support. These chairs will be especially nice in the summertime, because the sling fabric allows the chairs to breathe, which means you won’t stick to them on a hot July day! The frames of the chairs are made in your choice of 7 POLYWOOD recycled plastic lumber colors. The collection is comprised of four chairs and three outdoor furniture sets. There is the Coastal Folding Chair, Coastal Dining Chair, Coastal Counter Chair, and the Coastal Bar Chair. The new outdoor furniture sets include the Coastal 3-Piece Bar Set, Coastal 7-Piece Dining Set, and the Coastal 5-Piece Dining Set.

As you browse through our online gallery, all of our new POLYWOOD furniture pieces will be marked by a red “NEW” sticker, like our new South Beach Ultimate Adirondack with Hideaway Ottoman and Euro SOLID Chaise.

What do you think? Will you be adding POLYWOOD to your patio or deck this year?

Web_746_iccheaderpage1_ocIn case you haven’t heard, this Saturday is International Coastal
Clean-up Day,
organized by the Ocean Conservancy. This year marks their 27th
anniversary of celebrating this initiative and they don’t look to be slowing
down anytime soon. In 2011, almost 600,000 volunteers worldwide collected more
than 9 million pounds of trash from our oceanic ecosystems. These trash items,
such as cigarette butts, plastic bottles and bags and food wrappers, are
responsible for polluting our waters and endangering our wildlife.

Vermont Woods Studios makes every effort we can to support initiatives
like that of The Ocean Conservancy. In many areas of our company, you can find examples of how we support the preservation of our environment. We donate to local and national
environmental organizations, we “green-up” our office space and we even sell
recycled furniture!

Put your mind at ease by relaxing in recycled Polywood!Our POLYWOOD Outdoor Furniture is the perfect addition to
any green home. Made from more than 90% post-consumer recycled containers like
milk or detergent bottles, these pieces are constructed using a process that
makes them look and feel like real wood. That’s right. Durable, beautiful
furniture that doesn’t harm our environment and actually helps to keep plastic
out of our oceans. How much better can you get?
Here in the office, we decorate our “beach” area with
POLYWOOD and enjoy it all year long. We also have BIG plans for POLYWOOD at our
new Stonehurst home. Because that’s the thing about Vermont Woods Studios:
While we are a fine, hardwood furniture company, VWS is built on sustainability
and on protecting our environment.

This weekend, make plans to do something to support our
oceans. Find a beach clean-up site near you, start or improve a recycling
resolution in your home or office, or relax in a luxurious POLYWOOD Adirondack
Chair
. However you choose to help, you’ll be glad you did!

If you’ve discovered POLYWOOD all weather, recycled plastic outdoor furniture you love it, right?  It’s available in dozens of modern and traditional styles including Adirondack chairsrocking chairs, chaise lounges, outdoor dining tables, patio bar and counter height tables and more.

 

Plus POLYWOOD pool and patio furniture comes in white, black and 11 colors: blue, teak, tangerine, red, sand, mahogany, lime, lemon, green, aruba and slate grey.  And it’s made in America of recycled plastic drink containers, so while you’re outside enjoying nature you can feel good about helping to preserve it through your purchase.

So 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?

Well, have you noticed that all the dealers charge the same price?  That’s because the furniture maker (POLYWOOD Inc) has determined the lowest price that dealers seem to be able to stay in business with, and set that as a required minimum price.  Dealers who violate the minimum price policy will likely not be in business for long– either because POLYWOOD refuses to sell to them or they’ve run themselves into bankruptcy.

As it turns out the best deal on POLYWOOD isn’t about the lowest price.  It’s about the quality of the company you’re buying from and the way they stand behind their products.  At Vermont Woods Studios we’re committed to offering you the best values in POLYWOOD furniture that you will find anywhere and we stand behind all of our furniture (including POLYWOOD) with a lifetime guarantee (we’re the only dealer who does this, as far as I know).  Check it out along with the Top 10 Reasons to Buy POLYWOOD Furniture at Vermont Woods Studios.

I started Vermont Woods Studios Fine Furniture almost 7 years ago as part of a mission to help with rainforest conservation. We promote American made furniture that’s built with local, sustainably harvested wood as an alternative to imported furniture made with illegal tropical timber, clear cut from the world’s rapidly disappearing rainforests.

 

But a couple years ago when we were searching for an eco-friendly line of outdoor furniture, I began to learn that furniture is such a HUGE commodity it’s manufacture affects ocean conservation as well as forest conservation.  Often when rainforests are clear-cut for timber, they are converted into plantations that require massive amounts of pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers. The whole process results in soil erosion, run-off, ocean pollution and coral bleaching.

This knowledge is what led us to begin carrying our POLYWOOD outdoor furniture collection which is made from recycled plastic beverage containers, rather than rainforest woods like teak or mahogany.   I know this is a convoluted pathyway, but that’s what reminded me of today’s designation as World Oceans Day.

There’s no denying it– we are destroying the oceans and we need to take action to restore them.  90% of the big fish are gone and many of the fish caught today never even have the chance to reproduce. The average size of the remaining big fish has been cut in half in the last 50 years (the average weight of a swordfish caught today is 90 lbs., down from 266 lbs. in 1960).

The Green Prophet has some great suggestions if you’re wondering what you can do to help restore the oceans.  In addition to avoiding the purchase of furniture made from tropical woods (like teak, mahogany, ipe and eucalyptus) you can also help by eating only sustainably harvested fish and learning more about ocean conservation.

OK, thanks for reading all this.  Now time to head out to the beach for a swim!
