POLYWOOD CEO Doug Rassi on bringing Country Living into outdoor furniture

Doug Rassi – CEO and Co-Founder of POLYWOOD – discusses sustainability, design and POLYWOOD’s Country Living collaboration.

Outdoor furniture firm POLYWOOD has been a pioneer in the ‘faux wood’ category, and was the first company in this sector to pick up the Lillian B. Winchester Design Excellence Award back in 1995.
Earlier this year, POLYWOOD teamed up with Hearst to launch a Country Living furniture collection, which spans items like patio dining and lounge furniture to rocking chairs and swings.

We spoke with Doug Rassi – CEO and Co-Founder of POLYWOOD – about sustainability, design and how POLYWOOD brought Country Living to life in furniture.

Doug, it’s great to connect. To kick us off, for anyone new to POLYWOOD, talk us through what you guys do?
Since 1990, POLYWOOD has been creating beautiful outdoor furniture made from sustainable materials, including landfill-bound and ocean-bound plastics. In fact, we recycle an average of 400,000 milk jugs a day.

All our furniture, from the classic Adirondack chair to our new PW Designer Series collection, is designed and built in our facilities in Syracuse, Indiana, and Roxboro, North Carolina.
