As we close in on the first phase of adding new luxury patio furniture to our online store, customers are often surprised to learn that these outdoor pieces are not made of real wood. Naturally we wanted to look for a real wood product when we decided to start carrying outdoor patio furniture.
But, 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.
We made the choice to go with a luxury line of recycled plastic lumber (or poly wood) furniture in place of real wood due to several environmental advantages:
But, eco-friendliness aside, we also think our luxury polywood furniture is some of the most beautiful and well-designed furniture available anywhere. Have a look and tell us what you think!
