In 1990 partners Doug Rassi and Mark Phillabaum first teamed up to create an innovative substitute for lumber called Polywood. Today, the company is celebrated for its striking, eco-friendly creations which are the ideal material for creating high-quality, long-lasting and stylish patio furniture. Made using reclaimed plastic, the material is non-porous and resists fading, holding up to any weather - from rain to snow to constant sun. Cleaning is simple: the occasional scrub with soap and water will keep chairs and tables clean for years to come. You can be sure that your patio will always be ready when you are.

That reclaimed plastic came from old milk jugs recycled throughout the years. In a garage in Northern Indiana, these two high school friends discovered they could extrude the pellets of the recycled jugs into plastic lumber that could then be used to build patio furniture. Their “Poly-Wood” proved weather resistant whether sleet, wind, saltwater, chlorine and mildew. The color does not fade and these pieces are heavy enough to stand their ground in breezes. It is assembled using stainless steel hardware that has an additional protective Xylan coating. All good, but it gets better. Poly-Wood has been an active design house as well, developing casual outdoor furniture in different collections and colors with over 100 pieces.
