Polywood Outdoor furniture – A great all weather brand for your outdoor furniture

Polywood Outdoor furniture – A great all weather brand for your outdoor furniture

[Updated on 1 June 2020] Polywood is one of the best things that has ever happened to the world of patio furniture. The only negative thing you can say about this recycled plastic furniture is that it is not made of real wood, so it doesn’t have the natural look that a classic Adirondack chair does.  A single flaw is easy to live with when you look at all the benefits that Polywood Outdoor furniture provides. 
The company was born 30 years ago when Doug Rassi and Mark Phillabaum had the idea of recycling plastic milk and detergent jugs and turning them into patio furniture. Their concept has only grown in popularity as environmentalism grows in popularity. Today Polywood helps the environment by recycling over 400,000 milk jugs a year to make their products.
When the company first receives the raw material, milk jugs, for instance, they use a special process to remove any non-plastic substances like paper and food from the plastic to make it as pure as possible. From there, it is mixed with some additives, including pigment and foaming compounds, then pressed into boards.  
Perhaps the most important feature of these chairs is their durability and low-maintenance. Unlike wood chairs that are susceptible to rot or damage by insects, Polywood will never see structural damage like that. They will never see dents or scratches from environmental factors or everyday use and are specifically made to stand up to the ravages of severe weather. This means that you won’t ever have to spend sanding, filling, and repainting your patio furniture. Since these chairs aren’t painted and don’t have pours like other furniture options, they are super easy to power wash to remove any dirt and grime. 
It’s not just severe weather that Polywood is made to survive. These chairs and their unique materials will live through any conditions, which means they can stay out year-round no matter what extremes your climate has to offer. Even the hardware is vetted to withstand the harshest conditions, including salty sea air and being buried in the snow all winter. Polywood is so confident in the quality of their product that they offer a twenty-year warranty for most items. 
Aside from their benefits against the wear and tear of being outside, Polywood chairs also have an aesthetic advantage that most other outdoor furniture doesn’t have. Because of their unique material, these chairs are made to have the texture of real wood, so, from afar at least; they have the look of the real thing. What is really spectacular about Polywood furniture is that they are manufactured in an array of different colors from more natural and subdued to wild and vibrant. This means that there is a color or combination of colors out there to match any look you want. 
One more reason to own Polywood furniture is its convenience. A lot of it is stackable, and because of its material, it can be left out all winter if you have nowhere else to put it. When the patio season comes around again, all you need to do is hose the furniture down and let it dry in the sun, and you are ready to relax.

It’s not hard to imagine yourself sitting in one of these out on the dock. The rounded back legs give it a smooth and futuristic look while still holding on to traditional Adirondack chair features. The color selection is not the biggest, but there are still plenty of options to choose from classic colors like dark brown and white or more out there options like lime green. The waterfall front is not only a comfortable feature, but it makes it easier to get in and out of the chair. There is nothing not to love about this chair, and it will quickly become your favorite to lounge in whether you are just taking in the sun or fishing off the dock. 

Polywood South Beach

There is a color option for every taste, but this chair lends itself to the more eccentric color options. You’ll never lose your chair on the beach if it is bright yellow. From the second you buy the South Beach model, you will be daydreaming about being on the beach. 

Classic Folding Adirondack Chair

From the outside, this Polywood Adirondack chair doesn’t look any different from the rest, but it hides a secret that sets it apart. Like other Polywood options, this chair comes in a cascade of different colors from ones that look more like a traditional chair to ones that you can see from a mile away. The feature that deserves attention on this chair is its folding capabilities. Conventional Adirondack chairs take up a lot of space and are cumbersome. Since these chairs fold, they are easy to store and easy to toss in the back of the truck or the cargo area of an RV. 

Oversized 5 Piece Set

There is a lot to be said for this five-piece set that features footstools for ultimate comfort. You’ll find yourself sinking into these oversized chairs and feel your stress melt away.

It’s not as common as you’d think to have a side table that matches your chairs, and you will love having a refreshing drink within arm’s reach. This is a set made for the back yard since moving it around would be a pain, but they come in plenty of colors to perfectly match the look you’re creating. 

Nautical Wheeled Chaise

One look at these chairs and you will instantly have a vision of relaxing by the pool with a drink in your hand. These are the perfect chairs for catching a nap by the pool or on the beach. Their length does not make them the most portable to go from one location to the next, but their wheels do make them easily moveable around their home area. The length has its benefits too, it makes it easier and more comfortable to share the chair with kids or pets. In an interesting turn for Polywood furniture, they don’t offer many color options, but there are optional cushions that can be added for a pop of color. 

Polywood Shore Line 

The Shore Line collection is a more mature line from Polywood and can probably be described as their base model. Everything about it screams classic Adirondack chair from its straight back and slanted seat to its perfectly sized arms. It comes in a variety of colors, and while there are some wild options, most are subdued natural colors. As the name suggests, these are great chairs for hanging out by the lake, but they are indeed a great all-around chair that will look just as good on the dock as it does on the patio. 

Polywood Modern

POLYWOODShoreLineThe Modern model from Polywood lives up to its name. It keeps all of the angles that make an Adirondack chair what it is, but it takes some style liberties to take the classic chair and make it more contemporary. The slightly cascading front makes it easier to get in and out of the chair, and the simple three-slat back makes it look trendy. Polywood offers their signature color palette, but these chairs beg for darker, more mature colors like slate gray. The Modern chair is the perfect way to update your patio furniture and keep your patio looking fresh and inviting for years to come. 

Polywood Palm Coast

The Palm Coast model shows the innovation of Polywood with an incredibly convenient feature. It has a built-in footrest that makes this chair extra comfortable and makes getting in and out of the seat a lot easier. When you don’t want the footrest, it slides in under the seat that this chair looks like any other classic Adirondack chair you would see. The Palm Coast model has many of Polywood’s standard colors, as well as a few darker tones that you don’t see in all their products. 
Polywood truly has a chair for every taste. It doesn’t matter what style or color you are looking for; you will be able to find something that makes you happy. Through innovation and years of experience, they have handcrafted a material that stands up against anything you can throw at it and furniture to fit every lifestyle. Though Polywood has so many great attributes, the best is how little maintenance these chairs need. They can be left out all year round, and the most you’ll have to do is hose them down before you use them. One thing is sure, the only reason you’ll ever replace your Polywood furniture is because you want to get different Polywood furniture.
