Poly Lumber Adirondack Chairs Are Complicated

You see, I thought Adirondack chairs were easy. They also look about the same. Some are made out of real wood, others, poly lumber. They have occupied the southern porches and patios of North Carolina for as long as I can remember.

What Sets Patio Furniture at DFOhome Apart from the Competition?

Set the tone for your outdoor space with your choice of fine outdoor furniture. Browse our collection of outdoor chairs for an unparalleled selection of dining and Adirondack seating. Create a relaxing backyard destination with our rockers, gliders, and lounge chairs. Mix and match, or check out dining sets built to match in a variety of colors. Keep an eye out for new collections from Pawleys Island porch furniture, our top manufacturer of premier DuraWood furniture pieces manufactured from recycled lumber.

Outdoor benches and settees provide convenient vantage points for your garden or bird feeder. Accommodate your children and pets with custom-made outdoor chairs designed just for them. Once you’ve put together the perfect patio furniture arrangement, complement the set with shade from our peerless selection of fine patio umbrellas. Secure your patio umbrella in a table with a prefitted umbrella hole, or use one of our many weighted bases to secure it firmly in place anywhere in your yard.

Finest Quality Patio Seating and Outdoor Furniture

At DFOhome, we understand the importance of selection. We bring you unique designs from across the country in order to help you find exactly what you're looking for. But we don't skimp on quality – all of our brands have met a standard of excellence we feel is worthy of our customer's business, and we stand proudly behind our entire Adirondack line.

We consider Adirondack Chair style to be more than simply chairs and other furniture, but a frame of mind. Adirondack equates aggressive relaxation, a New England design with Southern influence – truly an All-American design. You can learn a little bit more about the origin of Adirondack chairs and the story of their development on our Adirondack History page.

Varieties of Patio Furniture

Single and Double Adirondack Seating are plentiful and affordable here! You'll find single and double occupancy Adirondacks in a variety of materials and styles. You'll see fan and straight backs, wide and narrow slats, in several varieties of wood and as many as 18 colors in plastic.

Porch Rockers are another mainstay of our collection, and we've strived to deliver to you the best of the best in that regard. You'll find many familiar Adirondack-style rockers, as well as other contemporary designs. We have Ottomans to match any Adirondack rocker or regular chair as well. Some ottomans will even rock along with your Adirondack! Check the "Recommended Accessories" on any item detail page to find your rocker's corresponding ottoman.

Swings are an aspect of our wide outdoor furniture offerings that you may not have considered. Think about this – many of our swings are constructed in similar Adirondack styles to chairs of the same brand. The potential for matching a set of chairs and swings exists for many designs. Worried about finding a place to hang your swing? No problem – we also offer affordable combo packages that include an a-frame, allowing you to give your swing added presence in your yard.

Patio Benches includes benches in both Adirondack and more traditional styles – think "garden bench." We've also got backless benches with contoured seats, as well as a high-quality poly-recycled bench reminiscent of old school park benches. For a more rustic look, be sure to take a look at our Cedar log-style benches – perfect for the true outdoorsman's backyard!

Gliders are increasing popular as a contemporary alternative to rockers. We have both double and single varieties, all in similar styles to our chairs and benches. You sacrifice none of the Adirondack style for a rejuvenating, peaceful rocking motion only gliders provide.

Lounge Chairs on our site are styled after the Adirondack tradition, and are available in wooden and poly-recycled varieties. They're adjustable, and many are offered with specially designed, all-weather cushions for added comfort!

All Weather Coffee Tables and Side Tables are great either as a centerpiece for an outdoor space, or an accessory alongside Adirondack chairs. Varieties run the gamut from small side tables with useful shelves, to larger coffee tables. You'll find these tables practically useful as well as stylish, as they're available in the same colors and materials as our Adirondack chair lines.

Need the perfect dining set for your deck or patio, but aren't sure where to start? You'll find tables with heights ranging from 28 to 31 inches in Regular Dining Sets, which also includes chairs suited to that traditional dining furniture height. For a mid-range height level, see our Counter-Height Dining Sets, which range from tables of 32 to 37 inch height. Our tallest pieces are available in Bar-Height Dining Sets, featuring tables ranging from 38 to 41 inches high, along with high dining chairs to match.

Patio and Porch Furniture Materials

We only carry those materials that are outdoor-ready straight out of the box. Though some wooden varieties come pre-stained, no staining is required on any of our unstained furniture -- though it can be an appealing personalizing improvement if you're a do-it-yourselfer!

Cedar wood is used in outdoor furniture because of its natural resistance to rot and decay. It does not need to be chemically treated. Cedar is a natural choice for any outdoor setting, and a standout material in our outdoor furniture lines. Cypress wood (Taxodium distichum) comes mainly from the southeast and is reputed to be one of the most durable wood for outdoor uses. It is a sought after wood for usages that requires high durability against moisture.

Cypress wood contains a natural oil called cypressine that prevents the wood from rotting, mildewing and it keeps insects and termites away. Non-stained Cypress wood features a white finish that will age to a silver pewter gray overtime.

Poly Lumber furniture is made from High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), a plastic resin made from recyclable plastic materials such as milk jugs. Poly Lumber will never need to be painted or stained, it will not rot or splinter, and contains added UV protection to resist fading. It will not promote bacterial growth or mildew, and will remain unharmed from snow and rain, year after year. Poly Lumber furniture is not affected by most corrosive substances and features stainless steel hardware.

Acacia and Eucalyptus are tropical hardwoods that feature the same texture, color, density and heaviness of teak. Acacia and Eucalyptus are a good alternative to teak, as it is becoming increasingly difficult to obtain. Acacia and Eucalyptus are more abundant and therefore easier to obtain -- and more affordable, too!
