Each fixture is assembled with a single LED module, a PVC-free cord, and powder-coated hardware.

Wave Collection, Polywood
Each of the four Adirondack chair designs in this collection repurposes more than 1,000 single-use plastic containers into outdoor seating.

A new vintage finish evokes the character of matte-painted wood. polywood.com
