Why Polywood?

Vineyard Counter Arm Chair

POLYWOOD’s extensive selection of outdoor counter stools and outdoor bar chairs lets our customers fill their porch, deck, or patio with all-weather pieces that fit with the theme of their outdoor space. From contemporary counter-height outdoor chairs that your family can relax in for weeknight meals, to charming outdoor bar stools that your friends can sit on while they watch you mix your famous margaritas, you’re sure to find a sophisticated seating option that meets your unique needs.

Our bar- and counter-height stools and chairs are all constructed from genuine POLYWOOD lumber, which includes recycled HDPE (high-density polyethylene) plastic. HDPE plastic is durable, long-lasting, and nearly impervious to outdoor elements and environmental stressors. This means our outdoor bar stools and outdoor counter chairs can handle extreme weather conditions and exciting parties without a problem year after year.

"I bought two chairs and a table. Both arrived within a week or two. All items were boxed and in great quality. Each item came with all items including screws and a special screwdriver. It took 2 people under an hour to put together all items. I recommend pre-screwing a hole before lining up the parts. A great product and company. I didn’t have to contact the company about a thing."
