Plastic Outdoor Furniture Can Be a Design Do

Summer is officially in full swing, which means it’s time to plant some marigolds and decorate your patio with loungers, lanterns, and anything else that will transform it into a stylish sanctuary for the season. But before you opt for traditional wicker or wood pieces, you might want to consider a different material: plastic. Many design aficionados shudder just hearing the word, but they have it all wrong.Outdoor Furniture.

At least that’s what Chloe Pollack-Robbins of the New York-based interior design firm Curious Yellow believes. “There’s this preconceived notion that plastic furniture is cheap, chintzy, and the type of thing you buy at Walmart,” she says. “Luxury had never been attached to the material until the Acapulco chair came along. That’s the cool, upscale take on outdoor plastic furniture, but there’s not much like it on the market.”
Pollack-Robbins is on a mission to prove that, when executed properly, plastic can be just as chic as its natural counterparts. When she and co-founder Anna Cappelen were enlisted to design Montauk’s newest hotel, Hero Beach Club (which has also been branded by ceramic company The Setting), they went to Bali to find local artisans to hand-weave recycled plastic into durable furniture. “If there’s time and skill put into the process, you can make any material that’s strong into something beautiful,” she says.
The pool area of the 31-room property is outfitted with a collection of acrylic stools that could be mistaken for knitted pieces, while the woven plastic of the hanging chairs outside the lobby resembles rattan. However, unlike those materials, plastic will hold up during inclement weather.Garden Furniture.
 “These pieces are great for Montauk weather,” explains Pollack-Robbins. “It’s salty, wet, and then can get really hot. There are a lot of unknowns. Plastic will last you for years compared to rattan and other natural materials that can break down within a season.”

While plastic is typically manufactured in yawn-worthy white, Pollack-Robbins and Cappelen took advantage of the endless colorways the material has to offer. “We created a diamond pattern by weaving pink and white plastic together for some of the outdoor chairs,” says Pollack-Robbins. “Also, the resin pots come in shades of pink, gray, and white. You’re not going to get that with anything else. That’s the beauty of plastic.”
