outdoor kids furniture

We do the worrying so you don’t have to…at least when it comes to outdoor kids furniture

Kids and grandkids can get into a lot of things. I know my sister and I put our parents through the ringer. From eating wild mushrooms that would turn us into Princess Fairies, honey fights in the kitchen and covering each other in Vaseline, our parents had their work cut out.

Polywood-outdoor-furniture

Check out the Top 10 Reasons to Buy POLYWOOD Furniture at Vermont Woods Studios.  Like us on Facebook and get a $50 coupon to use for POLYWOOD or any other furniture on our website.  This is the Classic Adirondack Chair.

If you’ve discovered POLYWOOD all weather, recycled plastic outdoor furniture you love it, right?  It’s available in dozens of modern and traditional styles including Adirondack chairsrocking chairs, chaise lounges, outdoor dining tables, patio bar and counter height tables and more.

 

Plus POLYWOOD pool and patio furniture comes in white, black and 11 colors: blue, teak, tangerine, red, sand, mahogany, lime, lemon, green, aruba and slate grey.  And it’s made in America of recycled plastic drink containers, so while you’re outside enjoying nature you can feel good about helping to preserve it through your purchase.

So now that you’ve decided to buy POLYWOOD, you’re looking for the best deal.  This kind of high quality furniture isn’t cheap.  Thus, where to go for the best price?

Well, have you noticed that all the dealers charge the same price?  That’s because the furniture maker (POLYWOOD Inc) has determined the lowest price that dealers seem to be able to stay in business with, and set that as a required minimum price.  Dealers who violate the minimum price policy will likely not be in business for long– either because POLYWOOD refuses to sell to them or they’ve run themselves into bankruptcy.

As it turns out the best deal on POLYWOOD isn’t about the lowest price.  It’s about the quality of the company you’re buying from and the way they stand behind their products.  At Vermont Woods Studios we’re committed to offering you the best values in POLYWOOD furniture that you will find anywhere and we stand behind all of our furniture (including POLYWOOD) with a lifetime guarantee (we’re the only dealer who does this, as far as I know).  Check it out along with the Top 10 Reasons to Buy POLYWOOD Furniture at Vermont Woods Studios.

HGTV-Office-Shirry-Dolgin-modern

Home offices aren't necessarily in a separate room anymore.  This one saves space with a large desk that could double as a kitchen table.  Less space means lower carbon footprint.

I am ashamed to say that my home office decor is deplorable.  You can see it in this video taken last year when I had 6 other people working in it with me.

 

So with our Green-up Your Workplace Challenge coming up for Earth Day, I decided to look for green design ideas to spif it up with eco-friendly home office furniture, lighting and accessories.

I started looking for ideas at HGTV and was delighted to find they are showcasing over 125 home office design ideas submitted by homeowners and interior designers. 

They've got modern home offices, eclectic home offices, traditional home offices, contemporary home offices, arts and crafts home offices, cottage home offices, tropical home offices, English country home offices, transitional home offices, mid-century modern and even Mediterranean home offices.

I hope they add a green home office project with all natural, all American made wooden office furniture: desks, file cabinets, credenza, occasional tables and chairs (maybe even using reclaimed, recycled barnwood).  Then add in organic cotton rugs, draperies and upholstery, energy efficient electronics, light bulbs, light fixtures and maybe even FSC certified wood flooring.  That would be a good project to post on Earth Day, HGTV.  Just a suggestion.

All-weather-outdoor-recycled-plastic-furnitureNo matter how worried we may be about global warming, you have to admit the early Spring weather felt pretty good today.  We put a couple of our colorful POLYWOOD chairs out in front of the office so we could soak up a few rays.

POLYWOOD all weather outdoor furniture is made from recycled plastic.  It’s hard to believe that this high end, luxury beach and patio furniture is the product of plastic milk jugs and water bottles, but it’s true!

As Earth Day approaches, we’re excited to let you know that this high end eco-friendly furniture helps to keep plastic trash out of our landfills and out of the ocean.  But don’t let the recycled, green nature of this all weather outdoor furniture fool you into thinking it’s quality is any less than the best.

It’s the only outdoor furniture I know of that is so strong, sturdy and durable it comes with a lifetime guarantee.  And because the color is infused throughout the poly lumber, there’s no need to paint, scrape or polish these Adirondack chairs, patio dining tables and chaise lounges. All weather, recycled plastic outdoor furniture that’s maintenance free and 100% made in America.  You gotta feel good about that.
