Recycled Plastic Outdoor Furniture for Patio, Porch and Pool Deck
Athletes are taught to visualize great performances and theoretically their thoughts will come true.  So I’m thinking summer and seeing myself lounging in this comfy Polywood deep seating outdoor furniture, wine cooler in hand.  Think that will hurry warm weather along?

For awhile I thought we might sneak through March without our annual Spring snowstorm, but obviously I was wrong.  The good news is that today is just one of those spectacularly beautiful, crisp winter days where the fresh snow is glistening in the sunshine, against a blue sky background. Not to be ungrateful, but it’s just that I’m kinda over winter at this point.

I keep seeing photos of our new Polywood recycled plastic outdoor furniture coming across my desk.  Check out the Club Deep Seating Outdoor Furniture pictured above.  Can you picture yourself relaxing on them this summer?  They can be customized online in white, black, green, teak, sand or mahogany recycled plastic “polywood”.  Cushions can be chosen from a selection of 14 different Sunbrella outdoor fabrics.

Deep seating furniture is typically selected for a covered outdoor space but if you’re looking for all weather furniture to place on an open patio, deck or poolside, maybe have a look at Polywood’s new Captain’s Collection.

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?

Kid-friendly-durable-furnitureOur kids are older now, but I remember when they were little we were always worrying about them getting hurt around our furniture.  Sharp edges and corners, glass tops, coatings and finishes were all a concern.

Well, now parents are getting much smarter about choosing kid-friendly furniture.  One option is to bring the beautiful, modern outdoor furniture that's become so popular over the last few years– inside.

Check out this outdoor polywood furniture,  It doesn't look kid-friendly does it?  It looks like (and is) stylish, high quality, luxury furniture.  But guess what it's made of?  Recycled milk jugs.  It's all non-toxic, inert, virtually indestructible, super easy to maintain and guaranteed to last a lifetime.  There's no glass, no finish or sharp edges.  Furthermore, you can choose from dozens of durable Sunbrella fabrics for the cushions without worry about spills and dribbles.  The deep seating mission collection shown here offers a choice of outdoor faux leather cushions or Sunbrella fabrics.

Parents of small children: give it some thought!  Bring the outdoors furniture in.

Recycled-plastic-teak Isn't it ironic that most things made of plastic are used only once and then thrown into the trash, although plastic itself is a material that lasts forever– that the Earth simply cannot digest?  In fact, scientists tell us that every bit of plastic that has ever been created still exists, except the small amount that has been incinerated (which has become toxic air pollution).

It's probably not realistic to think we can eliminate single use plastics, like grocery bags and water, milk and soda bottles so perhaps the next best thing is to recycle them.  Can you believe this high end outdoor furniture that looks like teak wood, is actually recycled plastic?

 

 

 

Plastic-adirondack-chairsSo are these colorful, high quality Adirondack chairs.  They're made of 90-100% recycled milk jugs, while the faux teak furniture above is made from recycled plastic grocery bags.  I think they're beautiful and comfy, but the coolest thing is that they last forever.  Of course– they're plastic.  The recycled plastic is made into faux lumber that has about the same weight and strength as teak wood.  A typical chair weighs 40-60 pounds and offers unparalleled resistance to weather, mold, mildew, salt and insects.  No big surprise– have you ever seen a plastic water bottle that's been corroded or eaten by bugs?

We even give this all weather patio furniture a lifetime guarantee which is pretty much unheard of for outdoor furniture.  Check them out on our Vermont Woods Studios website, see what you think and let me know.

OK, I've lived in Vernon Vermont almost 15 years and I can't remember ever getting so much snow in such a short amount of time.  I'm the only one in the office at Vermont Woods Studios Furniture today as my commute is pretty short. 

Riley just got in from snowblowing– he said there was an additional 8 inches of snow  on top of the 7 or 8 inches we plowed out of yesterday.  Annette, our local weather-woman says not to put the snow blower away.  There's more coming… so I decided to spend my day working on getting our new line of summer outdoor furniture up on the website.  Snow-weary Northerners: check out the pictures– they'll make you feel better.
