Adirondack Chairs
Looks like summer is actually here, finally! We’re so excited that Polywood season has begun and we can put our outdoor furniture to good use. Won’t you come join us? Summer at Stonehurst is lovely and we have plenty of space for visitors to walk around, hike, see some wildlife, or just relax in our Adirondack chairs and enjoy a nice cold drink!

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-

All Weather Adirondack Chairs by Polywood

Today was the first day of 2014 that was warm enough (for me, anyway) to eat lunch outside on the porch.  Hallelujah, Spring is finally here!  The sun is shining, the birds are singing and the snow has melted off our stoic all weather Adirondack chairs.  Yes we callously left them outside all winter long to endure the frigid temperatures, frost, ice and snow that only Vermont skiers can appreciate.

Long Island Adirondack Chairs | Made in America by Polywood | Recycled Plastic

But when we sat down on our Classic Adirondack chairs chairs today they looked and felt like new.  That’s because they’re made using an innovative new technology that takes recycled plastic drink containers and transforms them into plastic lumber that’s more durable than real wood.  A company called Polywood Inc, in Syracuse Indiana produces the furniture.  To tell the truth, we were looking for something Vermont made when we decided to start carrying high quality outdoor patio furniture.  But, after doing the research we fell in love with Polywood for many reasons:

  • Polywood is stylish, comfortable,  durable and environmentally friendly
  • The many colors (red, green, blue, yellow, orange, white, black and more) of Polywood are imbued throughout the recycled plastic lumber (RPL) which means scratches don’t show up and no painting or maintenance is required
  • Polywood has coated stainless steel hardware that’s rust resistant so the furniture can be left outside all year long
  • Polywood reduces the amount of plastic in landfills and helps preserve rare tropical rainforest woods that would otherwise be used for patio furniture
  • More reasons to love Polywood here

All Weather Adirondack Chairs from Vermont Woods Studios
The backyard of Stonehurst yesterday.  These wooden Adirondack chairs are longtime residents and have actually weathered quite gracefully.  But today’s Polywod recycled plastic outdoor furniture lasts a lifetime… guaranteed.

We’re in the middle of winter here in Vermont but elsewhere in America people must be getting ready for Spring.  We’re getting lots of inquiries about our Polywood all weather Adirondack chairs.  It seems we’re not the only ones unwilling to haul outdoor furniture back and forth from the basement every year.

Polywood all weather Adirondack chairs | Recycled plastic milk jugs
Which Adirondack chairs do you prefer?  Wood or recycled plastic?  And which setting do you prefer?  Winter in the backyard of Stonehurst or summer on the banks of Lake Champlain?

Unlike the wooden chairs above, today’s all weather Adirondack chairs are made of recycled plastic milk jugs or Polywood.  They offer the traditional design that’s proved itself comfy for generations along with new state of the art plastics technology that makes these chairs super durable.  Polywood holds up against harsh weather such as rain, snow, ice, and salt water.  It’s insect, mold and mildew resistant, requires no maintenance and even comes with a  lifetime guarantee.  Best of all, there are over a dozen colors to choose from and you’ll never have to touch up or paint (Polywood’s color runs all the way through each recycled plastic board).

So, let us know which Adirondack chair (wood or Polywood) and which seasonal setting (winter in the mountains or summer on the lake) you prefer on Facebook.

White Adirondack Furniture by Polywood | American Made
This is our Classic Adirondack 5-piece conversation group in white (dog not included).  The outdoor furniture set is also available in blue, teak, tangerine, red, sand, mahogany, lime, lemon, green, black, aruba and slate grey.  Do you love your dog enough to buy matching outdoor furniture for him (or her)?

I love blogging about our customers and their comments, feedback and reviews of our furniture.  B.R. of Westport, CT sent us this photo and testimonial:

We love our new white Adirondack furniture! Looks great and inviting and is EASY care! Makes me feel like I’m on vacation in the Cape when I look at it…. :-)) 

Furniture photos are always ten times better when the customer or their pets are in them, don’t you think?  I want to write a blog post titled:

How To Match Your Outdoor Lawn and Garden Furniture to Your Dog

I’ll need more photos though so I’m reaching out to all you Polywood owners today.  Surely some of you have dogs that qualify?  The Polywood Adirondack furniture set above comes in 13 different colors (blue, teak, tangerine, red, sand, mahogany, lime, lemon, green, black, aruba, slate grey or white).  Granted some of them won’t match your dog.  But what color is your dog?  I’m going to have a hard time believing you have a dog that doesn’t match one of these colors.

How about you post a photo of your dog and your outdoor furniture on our Facebook?  Even if they don’t match we’ll send you a free copy of Rachel Carter’s Vermont Explorer’s Guide just for being such a good sport. And I’ll collect the photos and post them here on the blog.  OK?  Humor me.  Please?

Outdoor Rocking Chairs | Polywood | Recycled Plastic | USA Made
Katie B recently received her Polywood Presidential Outdoor Rocking Chairs:  “Our deck in the mountains of western NC faces the morning sun and is uncovered. Thusly, our need for strong, durable porch rockers. They are so comfortable and look amazing!!  Thanks, Vermont Woods Studios!”   Thanks for your feedback, Katie.  What a beautiful outdoor space you have!

We love getting customer comments, feedback and suggestions about our American made furniture, especially when the reviews come with photos attached.  Today we’re sending our thanks out to Katie B who recently received her Polywood Presidential Outdoor Rocking Chairs:

“Our deck in the mountains of western NC faces the morning sun and is uncovered. Thusly, our need for strong, durable porch rockers. They are so comfortable and look amazing!!  Thanks, Vermont Woods Studios!”        Katie B

Here’s a little information on these durable outdoor rockers.  They’re a green product, made in America from recycled plastic milk jugs.  We guarantee them to last a lifetime (a little known benefit I don’t think you’ll find at any other furniture store). The porch rockers come in 12 traditional and bright colors.   They’re built in Indiana with maintenance-free recycled plastic lumber and premium stainless steel hardware.  The seats and backs are contoured for extra comfort, plus comfortable elbow support and big armrests make it easy to get up.  Optional seat cushions are available and our price includes free shipping.

Oh and there’s no need to store these outdoor rockers during winter months – leave them outside! Polywood is weather resistant and fade resistant.  The color isn’t just on the surface of Polywood, it’s all throughout the plastic lumber so there’s no painting, staining, waterproofing, stripping or resurfacing needed.  It’s a product you will never have to replace.

Give Liz or Sean a call if you’re interested in learning more or need a sample of Polywood in one or more of the many colors available (blue, teak, tangerine, red, sand, mahogany, lime, lemon, green, black, aruba, slate grey or white).
