Behind the Shot: Las Vegas Photoshoot

At the end of January, Dannielle and I went out to Las Vegas to shoot some of our latest furniture designs. I’ve actually been to Vegas a few times with POLYWOOD to set up our permanent showroom in the World Market Center (and another time for a bachelor party… but we won’t get into that), but what was nice about this shoot is that we … Continue reading Behind the Shot: Las Vegas Photoshoot

Tea Break with Ross Munn

I recently sat down for a Coffee Tea Break with our General Manager, Ross Munn. If you hear a group of people laughing, you’re likely to find Ross among them.

2015 Christmas Luncheon Recap

Two weeks ago, we held our annual company-wide Christmas luncheon. We were able to utilize our showroom space again this year with 30 tables spread throughout the area. As we plan to double in size next year, this may be the last time we can all fit in this space! For food, we had Essenhaus cater…the ultimate in comfort food: ham, beef, homemade noodles, mashed potatoes, rolls… Doug Rassi (our … Continue reading 2015 Christmas Luncheon Recap

Giving Back to our Community

The holidays here at Poly-Wood have been filled with fun, food and the company of great co-workers. We celebrated another white elephant gift exchange, ugly sweater contest, and a delicious holiday carry-in. But, for me, the greatest part of the holidays is giving back. Like last year, we chose to help people right here in our own community. And, we’re very fortunate to have such a great staff … Continue reading Giving Back to our Community

Behind-the-Scenes: POLYWOOD Studio

Welcome to the POLYWOOD Studio! Or as we like to call it, “PolyMagic Studios”. This is where we do most of our online photography and assembly videos (& where I spend most of my time). Fun Fact: The grey walls and floors provide a muted background so there are no harsh reflections or interferences with the color of the furniture. The gray is actually edited out … Continue reading Behind-the-Scenes: POLYWOOD Studio

In honor of both Fall & Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we held a “Fall Spirit Week” for Poly-Wood employees to raise money for Hello Gorgeous!, a non-profit in our area that provides makeovers and education to help uplift … Continue reading Pumpkin, Pumpkin & More Pumpkin!

How to Bocce

How to Bocce We here at Poly-Wood are a competitive bunch. From golf leagues to ugly Christmas sweater contests, or even challenges for who can eat 6 saltine crackers in 60 seconds (only me at this point) — we enjoy pitting ourselves against our fellow co-workers in friendly competitions. However, the most prestigious and fiercely fought competition here at our Syracuse HQ is the Annual … Continue reading How to Bocce

Behind the Shot

What goes into a Poly-Wood Photo Shoot… If you’re familiar with Poly-Wood, you’ve probably seen an image or two of our furniture taken at an exotic location. Whether it’s the beaches of the Outer Banks or the hills of Austin, Texas, these photos (what we call “Lifestyle Images”) capture what we’re all about — casual, laid-back, outdoor living. While these photos may appear to be glamorous, … Continue reading Behind the Shot
