Our Review of POLYWOOD Adirondack Chairs

Colorful Adirondack chairs sit alongside a body of water

My favorite thing to do is sit outside when the weather is nice. It doesn’t matter if I’m enjoying my morning coffee and watching the sun rise or sitting around a fire pit with my friends and family. If you’re anything like me, you may spend more time sitting outside than you do inside. 

That’s why finding high-quality outdoor seating is so important to me. My family has spent too much time trying to get by on cheap Adirondack chairs that fade, crack, break, and splinter apart after only one season of use. 

Gone are the worries about replacing my outdoor chairs each year now that I know more about POLYWOOD Adirondack chairs. POLYWOOD outdoor furniture is designed to last outside all day, every day, and even comes with a 20-year warranty to back it. I can finally invest in outdoor furniture that will stay nice year after year, which saves me money in the long run. If that’s not sustainable enough, the POLYWOOD Adirondack chairs are made from recycled materials, promoting sustainability without compromising quality. 

If you are looking for the last outdoor patio furniture you’ll ever have to buy, look no further than POLYWOOD.

About POLYWOOD Adirondack Chairs and Outdoor Furniture

POLYWOOD is a brand that makes weatherproof outdoor furniture from recycled materials. The brand makes furniture from Adirondack chairs to dining table sets to gliders and swings. They also sell furniture accessories like cushions and pillows. With 29 different furniture collections to choose from, you are sure to find outdoor furniture to match your exterior style. 


POLYWOOD divides its 29 Collections into three categories: Transitional, classic, and modern. The transitional category is the largest, with 14 categories inside. There are also nine classic collections and six modern collections.

Each category includes different furniture pieces. For example, the South Beach Collection includes Adirondack chairs, rocking chairs, patio dining sets, chaise lounges, and side tables. The EDGE Collection, by contrast, includes modular deep seating, dining chairs, and tables. Whatever your outdoor furniture needs are, there is a POLYWOOD collection for you to choose from. 

In addition, the furniture in each collection varies by style, color, and size. For example, the Modern Adirondack Chair has a 20.5″ wide seat. By contrast, the South Beach Adirondack Chair has a roomier 22″ wide seat. POLYWOOD offers chairs that weigh anywhere between thirty and fifty pounds.

My personal favorite collection is the South Beach Collection. Its Adirondack chairs have a backward sloping seat and curved back design that is perfect for reclining comfortably, and the shellback style makes me feel like I have part of the beach in my own backyard paradise. The seat is a roomy size, but the chair isn’t too heavy for me to move around. It also has wide arms that are great for resting drinks or prepping s’mores supplies. 

Environmentally Ethical Choice

What sets POLYWOOD apart is its lumber, which is made using recycled plastic. The material includes landfill-bound and ocean-bound plastics, including recycled milk jugs and bottles of laundry detergent, cleaning products, shampoos and conditioners, and anything else with a #2 recycling label. These products are made of HDPE, high-density polyethylene. 

The POLYWOOD materials are designed to withstand a range of seasons and climates. The brand designs them with light stable pigments, UV inhibitors, and stabilizers to protect them from sun damage over time. The lumber cleans easily with soap and water, making it low maintenance. It is resistant to damages like splintering, cracking, chipping, peeling, and rotting and backed by a 20-year warranty. 

Yes, wooden chairs are beautiful and classic, but they don’t hold up over time. POLYWOOD can give you the same wooden look with more weather resistance and durability. 

POLYWOOD makes its outdoor furniture here in the United States of America. This means it spends less time shipping and more on your patio. Reduced shipping time and distance is another way that POLYWOOD furniture is a more environmentally friendly choice. 


POLYWOOD outdoor furniture is available at a wide range of prices, depending on the collection, style of furniture, and color that you are looking for. 

Omni Outdoor Living stocks POLYWOOD’s South Beach collection of Adirondack chairs. Omni lists this collection of chairs in fifteen different colors. The chairs range in price from $279 to $319, depending on the color. The prices listed on the Omni website exactly match the prices on the POLYWOOD website. In addition, if you order on the Omni website, you earn free shipping on all orders over $100. 

While these chairs are certainly more expensive than the $30 plastic chairs from a superstore, comparing the quality of those two chairs is like comparing apples to oranges. If you’re ready to make an investment in your Adirondack furniture that is sure to last well beyond its 20-year warranty, you can’t go wrong with the POLYWOOD chairs. 

If you spend $319 on a chair that lasts you 20 years, that breaks down to only about $16 a year: That’s much more affordable than replacing your cheap broken chairs each summer. Not to mention, you are investing in environmentally ethical furniture made with recycled materials and built to last. Combine that with free shipping in the continental United States, and you have a highly affordable and sustainable set of outdoor furniture. 

Pros and Cons


  • So many collections, styles, and colors to choose from
  • Weather resistant and low maintenance
  • Built to last with heavy, durable design
  • Sustainable and environmentally ethical
  • No painting or waterproofing required


  • High initial investment cost
  • Requires chair assembly


The pros far outweigh the cons of purchasing POLYWOOD outdoor furniture and Adirondack chairs. The weather resistance of the product materials is unbeatable compared to other plastic or wooden outdoor furniture. Although these chairs come with a high initial investment cost, you won’t regret saving up for them. 

If you spend as much time outdoors as I do, you will be thrilled with the comfort, style options, and low maintenance durability of POLYWOOD Adirondack chairs for many years to come.
