During this clearance event, all in-stock Polywood products are 20% off. The sale is being held at our Stonehurst Showroom and is a “Cash & Carry” style sale (Friday Oct. 30-Monday Nov. 2).

Here’s some helpful information about Polywood and its benefits:
Polywood is high-end outdoor furniture made of a material known as Recycled Plastic Lumber (RPL). The plastic comes most commonly from recycled milk jugs and detergent bottles, as well as a variety of other plastic liquid containers.
The benefits of Polywood are tenfold compared to other common outdoor furniture materials such as cedar, teak and redwood. Aside from aiding in forest preservation and reducing the amount of plastic in landfills, Polywood is durable, low maintenance and comes with a Vermont Woods Studios life-time guarantee. Depending on where you live, Polywood furniture can withstand the rain, snow, wind (chairs weigh approximately 40 lbs each!) and any other challenges mother nature may throw its way. It’s insect, mold and mildew resistant and can be washed simply with soap and water. An added bonus? The look of real wood without splintering!

Adirondack chairs are true staples of summer. They are comfy, colorful, and make the perfect lounging chairs for long days next to the lake or pool. (Or if you’re in the middle of Vermont like us, they make the perfect seats for kicking back and taking in the view!)
Our POLYWOOD Adirondack chairs are special because they are not made from real wood. They are crafted from recycled plastic lumber, or more simply, 300+ recycled milk jugs! While we wouldn’t usually promote reliance on plastics, these chairs keep thousands of pounds of plastic from ending up in landfills each year. They’re ultra durable, can survive through hot summers and the snowiest of winters, and we guarantee them for life.
We have many styles of Adirondack chairs, some of our favorites include:
Our South Beach Adirondack Dining Chairs-
Our Long Island Adirondack Chairs-
and our Classic Folding Adirondack Chairs-
The differences in these three Adirondack styles are subtle, but we have dozens more for you to enjoy! Where would you put your Adirondack chair this summer? Let us know in the comments or on twitter.
Tis the season for buying outdoor furniture and prepare for spring and summer! Even in Vermont we have a couple nice days each year when everyone wants to lounge in the sun with a cold drink and a good book.
Our customers often discover us when they’re searching for American made, eco-friendly furniture. We’ve worked in collaboration with Vermont furniture makers for many years but have stuck to selling just sustainable indoor furniture for the dining room, bedroom and home office.
So when customers began to ask for outdoor porch, pool and patio furniture we were at a loss. What type of wood could we make it out of? The cherry, maple, walnut and oak woods we typically use for indoor furniture won’t hold up to outdoor conditions. Plus, we offer a lifetime guarantee on our furniture. How would we do this for an outdoor line?
American Made Outdoor Furniture
We considered many options. Teak and mahogany are about the only types of wood that would meet our standards for weather resistance and longevity but they are both rainforest woods that are often harvested illegally and unsustainably. Not an option.
So after researching all the alternatives we selected an American made wood-alternative material for our first outdoor furniture line. It’s called poly wood and it’s made in Indiana of recycled plastic milk jugs. It’s not real wood, but it has the look, thickness, weight, and feel of real wood plus it’s virtually indestructible and maintenance free. No more scraping, painting, or weatherproofing needed. POLYWOOD recycled plastic furniture can even be left outside year round eliminating the need for seasonal storage.
So that’s what we chose for our first outdoor furniture line. We really do feel that POLYWOOD is the best “wood” to use for outdoor furniture. With summer being so short up here in Vermont, we want to spend it enjoying our all-weather outdoor furniture rather than maintaining it! How about you? Check out the POLYWOOD furniture collections we offer. It’s eco-friendly, Made in America outdoor furniture and it comes with free shipping and a lifetime guarantee. Pretty tough to beat, I say.
In Vermont, spring and summer slip by all too quickly so when winter finally rolls out of sight, we want to get outside and relax in the sunshine ASAP. And that’s where the beauty of POLYWOOD All Weather Porch Furniture comes in so handy. There’s no longer any need to go schlepping downstairs to the basement and dragging heavy outdoor furniture outside before you can relax on the patio in the warm sunshine.
All Weather Porch Furniture: What is it?
POLYWOOD is new type of American made, recycled plastic furniture that can be left outdoors all winter long! It’s basically impervious to harsh weather such as rain, snow, ice, and salt water. Made from recycled milk jugs, POLYWOOD is a thick, heavy, dense plastic designed to replicate high quality tropical lumber like mahogany and teak. It’s maintenance free and insect, mold and mildew-proof. And POLYWOOD is available in natural colors, plus white, black and a wide variety of vibrant contemporary colors. Best of all, POLYWOOD colors are infused throughout the recycled plastic lumber, rather than just on the surface so there’s no need to ever refinish. Hooray!
Now your Springtime routine of lugging furniture to the patio, scrubbing it clean, scraping old paint and applying new paint pretty much boils down to this: pour wine, sit on your POLYWOOD with a book and relax in the sunshine!
