Something about Us?

Our story begins with a journey to find durable but stylish outdoor furniture. Living on the coast of Southern California, you begin to appreciate the durability of your patio furniture. After all, your chairs and tables go through a lot. While the seasons are mild, your furniture must withstand the ocean salt spray, a near-constant assault from the sun and even the occasional rain shower, drastically reducing its longevity. Trust us, we’ve been through our share. Finally, we came across something that sounded too good to be true: a heavy-duty, all-weather chair that offered a 'painted wood-like appearance' and was naturally waterproof. This sounded perfect! But when the chair arrived safely a few days later, there was one big problem: It didn’t look anything like wood.

THE PROBLEM

Traditional poly-lumber like HDPE is suitable for use in outdoor furniture, but it leaves much to be desired in appearance and style: the overall appearance is mottled, the feel is waxy and it doesn't look much like wood. Despite this, poly-furniture has enjoyed mainstream success thanks to it's natural durability and all-weather ruggedness.

the solution

When designing our own furniture products, we knew that things could look so much better while still offering the same durability and easy maintenance. That's why we set out to create PolyTEAK®, a unique material that actually looks and feels like real teak wood!
