  1. considering the vintage white Lakeside or black Vineyard deep seat chairs. which one will ship faster? which one has a higher seat back?

    1. Hi Regina,
      Great question! The Vineyard Deep Seating Chair measures 31.5″ H and the Lakeside Deep Seating Chair is a tad taller measuring 31.81″ H. Both their current lead times are accurately displayed on their product pages on — thanks for asking!

    1. Hi MJ!
      Great question! Our furniture is tested for the weight capacity of up to 400 lbs.

      Thank you for taking the time to ask!

  2. Hi,

    Which line comes completely assembled? And is it possible to pay for assembly if it is not included?

    1. Hi Bernadette,

      Thanks for reaching out!

      We don’t have entire collections that ship fully assembled, but some of our individual items will ship fully assembled. You can view the assembly instructions for each item from the page. Simply scroll down until you see the dimensions and dimensional drawings. Just below this, to the left side, you’ll see an Additional Info header and below that you will see Assembly Information. You can click the words Assembly Information and you’ll be able to view the assembly instructions as well as see any assembly videos or tips we have.

      We aren’t to assemble any items that require it in our facility due to limited production capacity, unfortunately.

      Have a wonderful day!

    1. Hi Walter,

      Thanks for the suggestion!

      This article has been updated to include the Braxton Collection. We don’t have the Prescott line included at this time, but it could be added in the future.

      Have a wonderful day!

  3. I’m looking for deep seating chairs VERY COMFORTABLE. Which of your deep seating chairs would you recommend to be most comfortable? We want something that one could sit, relax, read a book and fall asleep. We plan on getting ottomans.

    1. Hi Sharon,

      Thanks for reaching out to us!

      You could choose from any of our deep seating collections, but the Vineyard and the Lakeside are very popular with customers. The Braxton is also a great choice if you want a little more detail on the backs of the frames.

      You can see the collections here:

      Have a great day!

    1. Hello Mary Ann!

      Thank you for your question. On most of our cushions, the outer shells are sewn completely shut around the perimeter so they should not be removed. However, our all-weather performance fabrics are designed to be weather-resistant and easy to clean, so you should not need to remove the fabric from the cushion. If you need helpful tips on cleaning your POLYWOOD cushions, please refer to our Care & Maintenance page via the link below:

      Thank you!

  4. Can you tell me cushion thickness for each style? Both seat and back cushions? Some look thicker than others but it’s hard to tell for sure

    1. Hi Sue,

      Good eye! The deep seating cushions will differ in thickness depending upon the set you are viewing. The cushions are made specifically to fit each piece. Is there a certain collection you are most interested in? We’re happy to get you the dimensions.


  5. What are the seat cushions made of? How firm is the foam used? Is the foam wrapped? Are the cushions (both seated and back) a comfy, ‘settle down into’ type or is it a firm cushion?

  6. I love the Lakeside collection, but I do not like the button in the middle of the cushion. Can you order a different cushion? The button is unattactive to me as it looks busy and is also uncomfortable to sit in. Buttons also do not last. Dogs and kids play with them and chew them off (don’s ask me how I know!) I love the variety of product and the pricing of the Lakeside Collection, but do not want the button on the cushion. Thank you. Love your products.

    1. Hi Sarah!
      Thanks so much for taking the time to leave us your feedback! I’m sorry to hear that the Lakeside cushions are not to your liking. I will pass this information along to our Design team to see if this is something that can be an option in the future.
      Thanks again!
