Polywood Patio Furniture, the brand, was the first in the industry.  They began in the early 80s in Indiana by recycling plastic and making their own High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) lumber boards which they then milled and cut, just like wood, into durable outdoor furniture.  They still maintain this process today of buying recyclable plastics and making their own HDPE poly lumber.  HDPE is used by all premium poly brands in addition to MGP (Marine Grade Polymer). HDPE is colorfast, chemical resistant, and non-porous, making it an ideal choice for exposure to the elements. 

The brand Polywood is very consumer-centric.  Polywood focuses on designing their furniture to be value-driven and hit ideal styles and price points as well as being widely available in the market across in-store, big box, and eCommerce channels.  Just as the term “elevator” actually began as a singular company and brand, the brand “Polywood” has become synonymous in the industry for all poly furniture.  If you are looking for quality poly furniture at some of the best values, then Polywood branded furniture may be for you.  We highly recommend you visit your local outdoor furniture dealer and sit in the different options they have before purchasing online.  Some of the overall styling, size and scale of the furniture can be a bit deceiving online.
