Carson & Thom
Come to POLYWOOD

Carson Kressley and Thom Filicia, world-renowned designers, authors, and alumni of the award-winning television series Queer Eye, visit Indiana for an exclusive tour of the POLYWOOD headquarters.

ALL EYES ON POLYWOOD

Carson and Thom love seeing sustainable design in action, so they—along with a star-studded group of design pros—traveled to our campus in Syracuse, Indiana to see how our American-made outdoor furniture comes to life, from concept to creation.

Tag along with Carson, Thom, and the entire crew—furry friends included—to learn why they love POLYWOOD.

Down To Business

The tour begins at our in-house recycling facility.

All the Feels

Carson takes a hands-on approach to learn about our recycling process.

The Proof is in the Plastic

These tiny plastic pellets were once landfill-bound and ocean-bound plastics.

Zero-Waste Mindset

Carson sweeps up plastic scraps that will be recycled back into the production line. 99% of all scrap is recycled and reused at POLYWOOD.

Genuine Authenticity

“I’m on the Sustainable Furnishings Council, so I am very cognizant and invested in that component of the manufacturing process. And I have to say, hands down, that I have never been more blown away with the actual reality of [POLYWOOD] being authentically what it claims to be.” - Thom Filicia

Formed For Function

The creation of genuine POLYWOOD lumber is a sight to behold.

From Pellets to Planks

Carson and Thom marvel at our lumber extrusion process.

Genuine Design

“I love that [POLYWOOD] takes a waste material, recycles it, and turns it into something amazing and useful and beautiful. That’s like a design home run.” - Carson Kressley

Mesmerizing Material

“It’s like magic. But it lasts longer.” - Carson Kressley

“I know the power of making the world a better, more fun place through great design."

The American Dream

“I think that this is where art meets commerce, and I think that that’s a really exciting sort of place to be and to see that all in one day from beginning to end and be able to sit in this chair right now to me, as a business person, as a creative person, that is the American dream.” - Thom Filicia

In Good Fun

Thom and Carson share a laugh with award-winning designer Christian Daw.

All-Access Pass

From the small details to the big picture, Carson and Thom enjoy the immersive POLYWOOD experience.

“I saw the American dream today. It’s about as homegrown as you could possibly get.”

- Thom Filicia
