The Word is Out – Highwood USA is a Backyard Favorite!

You’ve probably read from us over and over that you’ll love highwood® furniture (and hopefully you do!). However, don’t just take our word for it! Read on for select reviews on some of our most beloved outdoor furniture pieces!


Adirondack Chairs – Traditional and Modern

The Adirondack chair is a symbol of American relaxation, calling to mind summer evenings spent enjoying the sunset with a view from a deck. Here at highwood®, our Classic Westport Adirondack is a simple design, but it’s also our most popular! Read Paul’s review and find out why so many have loved the Westport:

“We purchased four chairs and footstools about 4 years ago. They’ve been outside on an uncovered deck 24/7/365 ever since. We live on the coast of Northern CA, so they’re exposed to tons of sun, but also rain, fog, and salt spray. They’ve shifted a tiny bit in color, but it’s almost unnoticeable. Otherwise, they look like they were purchased last week. I’m very impressed with the durability. These replaced cedar Adirondacks, which didn’t hold up more than 5 years.

When it comes to daily use, I’ve found the chairs very comfortable and roomy. One set of chairs was missing some hardware when it arrived, but Highwood replaced it immediately. I’d buy these again without hesitation."

The classics remain popular for a reason, and as is often said, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!” Adhering to this principal, we go above and beyond to ensure our chairs are ultra-durable and easy to maintain. This means you can also spend less time fixing and more time relaxing!

If you prefer more modern designs for Adirondack chairs, check out the Italica! With this style, we keep our commitment to ultra-durable design and easy maintenance, but change the look with wider boards on the back and armrests. Read on to see why Robin loves the Italica:

“…These are so well made and thick--well worth the cost over cheaper options. I have a couple other modern Adirondacks. Compared to Highwood, the material on those is much thinner (one arm rest already shows some warping) and the build is much less solid. In addition, the cheap ones have visible hardware while the Highwood chairs keep hardware hidden…”

Folding and Reclining Adirondack Chairs

Before we close out our discussion on Adirondack Chairs, we also want to highlight our folding and reclining options. These chairs allow you to find the best position for sitting back and relaxing. Plus, even though it’s not required, they fold up for easy storage. Our most popular reclining Adirondack chair is the Hamilton, available in either a standard size or king size version.

Here’s what Ben had to say about our Hamilton chairs:

“Bought a black Highwood Folding Adirondack Chair in the Fall. It was easy to assemble and felt solid. After the first harsh New England winter it is holding up great, and so far, I’m very happy.”

If you like what you see with the Hamilton chairs, check out our Manhattan Beach Adirondack! Keeping the folding and reclining frame, this durable chair features an extra tall back, and a design philosophy that adds luxurious, modern style.


Rocking Chairs

Outdoor rocking chairs offer the classic picture of front porch relaxation after a long day of work. At highwood®, we want your outdoor seating area to be as comfortable as possible, so we make our own rockers with top-tier poly lumber.

The traditionally designed Lehigh rocking chair is currently our most popular rocker. Read Peter’s review to see why:

“Totally meets our expectations!! The seat is wide and deep, engineered for the most comfortable motion. It’s sturdy, the color doesn't fade in direct sunlight, and Highwood’s customer service puts it in the top five of all companies I deal with. If you want a super great product from a made in America company with excellent customer service, you should get six of these for hosting guests on the dock or fire pit!!"

Prefer more modern styling? We also offer the Weatherly rocking chair. This chair features horizontal lines along the back, a durable, long-lasting construction, and comfortable seat.

If you love Adirondack styling, browse our Hamilton and Westport Adirondack rocking chairs! These chairs combine the comfort and motion of a rocking chair with Adirondack styling. If you want a rocking chair you can use while enjoying your garden handiwork, opt for the Westport Garden rocking chair.


Outdoor Dining Furniture

As Spring continues and the weather gets warmer, hosting guests for meals becomes a must. If you’re looking for a long-term investment in outdoor dining, check out our dining sets!

Like our rocking chairs, our dining furniture is available in traditional, modern, and Adirondack styling, along with various configurations for tables and seating. However, no matter how many pieces go into your new dining set, we promise that they’re all easy to assemble and maintain.

Read what Jessi said after receiving a Weatherly 7-piece dining set with 6 chairs and a large table:

"We are so impressed with this furniture! It was extremely easy to construct, and is so heavy duty. I didn't know plastic could be so solid. I love the style and the wood look to our furniture. I'm confident it will last for years to come." 


A recent category we’ve expanded into is bar and balcony dining furniture. These sets feature taller stools, chairs, and tables characterized by longer, rectangular tops. These are ideal for sipping wine on a warm summer evening under the stars.

After receiving our traditionally styled Lehigh counter height balcony set, Marla wrote about how her family is looking forward to enjoying breakfast while watching the sunrise:

“It was so easy to put together. We are looking forward to many breakfasts sitting at the table watching the sun coming. We’ve already put it to good use! The furniture has helped us enjoy our back deck more than we ever did before.”

Our balcony sets are available both in our traditional Lehigh and our more modern Monroe designs. Take a look through all our balcony items to see what will work best for your own deck!

Besides what we’ve discussed above, we have a wide range of options for dining. We offer sets with rectangular, round, and square tables, in regular dining and slightly taller counter height. We can’t highlight everything here, but feel free to browse all our outdoor dining to your heart’s content! We’re sure you’ll find something you’ll want for your space.


Backyard Benches

Outdoor benches aren’t just for parks or large public spaces. Our garden benches offer a chance for multiple guests to enjoy sitting together while taking in the scenery of your yard.

All our benches (like every furniture piece we make) are available in a variety of color choices to make your space your own. Here’s what Mindy had to say about the 4ft Lehigh Bench in Woodland Brown:

“We've had our Lehigh 4 ft garden bench for about a month, and we love it. It was delivered on time, easy to put together and very good quality. The color (Woodland Brown) looks very natural. The bench is comfortable and sturdy. A very good purchase!”

Porch and Yard Swings

Swings offer an idyllic way to enjoy a front porch or yard, and we build them to last. Each highwood® porch swing purchase comes with all the chains and hardware you need to set it up (additional chain and hardware kits are available if required).

Here’s what Catherine had to say about the 4ft Weatherly porch swing:

“This swing is sturdy and well built. All generations of the family enjoy using it. I especially like how easy it is to clean and maintain. We have had it for two years and use it three seasons of the year. Much better choice than wooden ones. Withstands the Pennsylvania winters.”

Vibrant colors call to mind summer vacations, and allow you to create a personal paradise wherever you desire.

Like highwood®, Bahia Verde furniture is made with the utmost quality and care. Here’s what Mary had to say about the Cape Folding and Reclining Adirondack chairs:

“We are so happy with these chairs. The quality is top notch, and we appreciate the weight as our last chairs from a different manufacturer blew all over the yard. Very comfortable!!!”
