Best Outdoor Furniture

When it comes to the best outdoor furniture, what would your criteria be? After many conversations with our customers we have found five things that is on everyone’s wishlist.

1. Zero Maintenance

2. Sturdiness and Durability

3. Stylish

4. Eco-friendly

5. American Made


Polywood Outdoor Furniture

We have only been able to find one manufacturer that fits our customer’s 5 point criteria, and that is Polywood.

1. Zero Maintenance

Polywood is constructed with recycled plastic lumber, which is designed to resist fading; won’t splinter, crack, or rot; and never requires refinishing.

2. Sturdiness and Durability

Polywood is as thick and heavy as conventional wood lumber, assuring that it will hold up for heavy use or won’t blow all over your yard.

3. Stylish

With 20 collections and 13 colors to choose from, there’s a piece of Polywood outdoor furniture for all tastes.

4. Eco-friendly

90% of Polywood’s lumber is made from post-consumer recycled plastic. Typically, containers such as water bottles, milk jugs, ect. The average Polywood adirondack chair requires 500 milk jugs to manufacture.

5. American Made

Polywood is 100% made in America for over 20 years and is the premiere plastic outdoor furniture maker in the industry. In recent years, there have been a lot of companies trying to produce a similar product, but Polywood innovated this process, and no one can beat the original.

We offer the full Polywood product line, and you can check it out on our website. As an authorized Polywood dealer, we try to keep it competitively priced, tax-free, and offer free shipping. If you have any questions about our Polywood outdoor furniture, feel free to contact us.



Think Summer with Polywood’s New Outdoor Furniture

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.

There are dozens of other outdoor furniture pieces on our website to get you thinking about lounging around or entertaining outdoors this summer.  Have a look and let us know which ones you like best on our Facebook.


Winter Going On Summer

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?
