Why POLYWOOD?

These are not your average Adirondacks. Come rain or shine, ours couldn’t be easier to maintain and are tough enough to handle any weather. Less work, more play—and all the time to relax the day away.

Genuine POLYWOOD lumber is made of recycled and reusable plastics in a circular, 99% waste-free process. And in the future, your furniture can be recycled back to where it started. Built to last and consciously crafted—our Adirondacks are here for good in more ways than one.

“After dinner, we gather around the fire pit and break out the s’mores with my girls. These are the moments that are important.”

Choose the Perfect Adirondack Color

Angelo's Designer Tips:

“Think about the type of mood you want to create with your outdoor space and seek colors that will coordinate with the natural elements in your area. Be sure to take sunlight into account and imagine what colors will look like on a bright day versus an overcast day. For instance, some Adirondack colors may be distracting when placed on a patio that receives full sun all day long.”

Adirondack Features

Weatherproof

Rain, wind, and sleet shouldn't get in the way of enjoying your outdoor furniture. Unlike wood, POLYWOOD products are innovatively engineered to withstand all four seasons without splintering, rotting, cracking, or chipping.

Low Maintenance

Easy does it. Our patio furniture will always look as good as new with very little effort. It doesn’t need to be brought inside during inclement weather and cleans quickly and easily with soapy water and a soft-bristle brush.

Sustainability

Sustainability has always been our second nature. Our long-lasting furniture is made using plastics that could otherwise pollute oceans and overwhelm landfills—and it can also be recycled when the time comes.

Why are they called Adirondacks?

This iconic design is named after the Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York, where Thomas Lee invented it in 1903. The original used several flat wooden boards and featured a straight back, deeply slanted seat, and wide armrests.


At POLYWOOD, we’ve designed dozens of new iterations that honor the original but expand the options of silhouettes, sizes, and comfort features to create something for everyone.

Types of Adirondacks

Rocking Chairs

Lull yourself deep into relaxation with an Adirondack Rocking chair. This chair has the reclined seat of an Adirondack and the slopped runners of a rocker, which lets you enjoy a distinctive relaxation experience.

Ottomans

Take a seat, and put up your feet on an all-weather ottoman. We offer a variety of outdoor ottomans, so you can find one that matches your Adirondack chair's color, height, and style. 

Folding

Our folding Adirondacks let you take relaxation anywhere. These chairs can be easily folded up and moved when you need extra seats around your fire pit or desire beachfront comfort on your next vacation.

"I personally love the Modern Adirondack style — fewer back slats versus multiple slats. I like the visual simplicity of less linear lines. But, you can't go wrong with a traditional style Adirondack; it's just a timeless design."

Top Adirondack Materials

Adirondack chairs are available in a variety of materials — HDPE lumber, teak, aluminum, and injection-molded plastic, to name a few.

1. HDPE Lumber Adirondack Chairs

Our favorite material for Adirondack chairs is HDPE. Adirondack chairs made with this material can be left outside all year-round, clean easily with soap and water, and are available in an array of fade-resistant colors. This durable, weatherproof plastic is also used to make milk jugs and detergent bottles. 

2. Wooden Adirondack Chairs

Teak, pine, oak, cedar, cherry, and other natural woods are popular choices for outdoor furniture. Wooden Adirondack chairs can remain outside all year-round, but they're difficult to maintain and require regular cleaning and oiling to avoid a "silver patina."

3. Aluminum Adirondack Chairs

Aluminum is a durable, easy-to-maintain material that can be left outside all year-round as it's resistant to water and rust. Aluminum Adirondack chairs are lightweight and easy to move around the patio but also susceptible to wind gusts.

4. Injection-Molded Plastic Adirondack Chairs

Unfortunately, Adirondacks made from this material fade quickly in the sun, are vulnerable to stains, and are generally unstable — breaking easily within a year or two of purchasing.

“There’s not a moment where I think POLYWOOD won’t withstand the weather — it’s a product you can trust.”
