10 Reasons to Choose Seaside Casual Furniture
Made in the USA
We began making furniture at our Rhode Island lumberyard in 1996. It started as a hobby with just one Adirondack chair. With the encouragement of our local community, we began making and selling more chairs. That single design has now grown into a collection of over 50 products.
In 1999 we introduced Envirowood – a 100% High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) lumber. Made from recycled plastic bottles and containers, Envirowood is permeated with UV stabilized pigments that are consistent throughout the entire piece. The result is a smoother and more durable finish that prevents chalking and resists fading of the surface.
Our lumber is milled and routered to simulate the look and feel often found in traditional wood furniture. Joints are secured using mortise and tenon joinery and edges and corners are milled on precise CNC machinery. In short, we produce our outdoor collection at specifications usually applied to interior furniture.
All stainless steel fasteners are not created equal. Low grade stainless or painted components can easily corrode in harsh coastal environments. We use marine grade stainless steel (316) to ensure superior protection when exposed to the elements.
Solid as a Rock
Unlike sheet molded products, our frames are constructed with HDPE lumber components that are designed to withstand temperature and load changes. Structural aluminum is used to reinforce critical frame members in key locations. The result is a product that will not tip, topple, or turn over on your patio, deck, or lawn.
Slats and Spaces
Appropriately spaced slats are the difference between support and the feeling of "falling through" the seat or back of your chair. We have this perfected so you feel comforted and secure.
It Only Has a Good Side
All of our products are completely finished on all surfaces. This means all backs and seats are slatted and supported so that they look and feel great even when cushions are not in use. Compare our finish to others and you'll see that our way is the best way.
We offer a wide selection of custom fitted cushions made from Sunbrella and Outdura fabrics. These premium fabrics repel water, are stain resistant, and resist fading, even in the brightest of sun so your furniture will look great on day one and day one thousand.
Take it for a Test Drive
We test the ergonomics of our products constantly throughout the design phase and
we believe our customers should have the opportunity to do the same when making a purchase. Because of this belief, we forge relationships with retailers who offer brick and mortar showrooms. These relationships ensure the expertise that we expect and the service our customers appreciate.
Peace of Mind
Our products are backed with a 20 year warranty that offer the support and commitment of a
family-owned company with over 100 years in the making. We stand by our products with confidence so you know you can enjoy their quality for years to come.
Envirowood is made from an extremely high performance polymer that does not require sealing, painting or staining. It will not rot or splinter, and contains UV inhibitors that resist fading. Envirowood is not affected by most corrosive substances, and will not absorb moisture or promote bacterial growth. To maintain Envirowood furniture you must simply clean it regularly with soap and water (avoid pressure washing). The stainless steel fasteners used to assemble your furniture are virtually maintenance free under normal conditions. Seaside uses only the highest quality stainless fasteners to assemble furniture; however in coastal areas hardware will require regular washing or rinsing with fresh water to avoid rusting. Avoid using harsh chemicals on Envirowood furniture. Stainless steel hardware will rust in high salinity environments if not properly maintained as described
Seaside Casual is Traditional Modern Our outdoor collection is a balance of traditional design recreated in modern materials. The coastal communities of the eastern seaboard have molded our aesthetic, while material advancements have allowed us to create a product that can withstand the elements. Our products are designed to endure the corrosive seaside air, a New England winter, or an Arizona heat wave. In short, we handcraft furniture that looks great, is easy to maintain, and can be left outdoors from one season to the next.
