BRINGING INDOOR STYLE OUT TO THE PATIO:
Syracuse, IN – POLYWOOD, the originator of outdoor furniture made from recycled plastic materials, officially introduced their Design Ambassador Program for 2019. The company has collaborated with three prominent interior designers who will pair their own unique styles to create beautiful outdoor spaces with POLYWOOD furniture.
“There’s a shift happening in the market which speaks directly to our foundation at POLYWOOD. Our founders’ original mission of stewardship, to do something meaningful for future generations, remains at our core,” stated Megan Pierson, SVP of Business Development. “Sustainability in design continues to gain momentum and we’re thrilled to team up with talented designers to help us to tell that story.”
Along with increased consumer interest in sustainable outdoor materials, outdoor spaces are becoming an extension of the indoors. “Everything from furniture and decor (pillows, ottomans, rugs, decorative accents) are now being designed specifically to look like indoor furniture and decor, but for your outdoor space,” explained Farah Merhi, Founder of Inspire Me! Home Decor. “This allows us to create beautiful outdoor sanctuaries that feel just as cozy as your indoor space.”

In the late 1980’s government mandated recycling programs were in full swing. As the use of plastic in the U.S. grew, the need to transform the overabundance of recycled plastic into something new was greater than ever. POLYWOOD saw an opportunity in high-density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic specifically — an extremely durable and weather resistant material, perfect for outdoor furniture. Today, POLYWOOD recycles an average of 400,000 milk jugs per day. Truckloads of recycled milk jugs are transformed into genuine POLYWOOD lumber which is then used to construct the wide array of POLYWOOD Adirondack chairs, rocking chairs, benches, gliders, deep seating, dining, and more!
