Highwood USA, a manufacturer of outdoor furniture and accessories made from high-quality synthetic wood, announced new product offerings for 2013. Addressing evolving consumer trends, the company’s new products include a Large Deck Storage Box, King Size Deck Storage Box, Lehigh Porch Swing, Weatherly Porch Swing, and a new product finish color called Charleston Green.
“The expansion of Highwood USA’s outdoor furniture and accessories collection enables consumers to mix and match our products for complete outdoor room experiences no matter the size and type of outdoor space,” said Craig Smith, director of sales & marketing for Highwood USA. “For landscape professionals and contractors, the new items provide a more well-rounded selection of outdoor room furnishings for their clients to choose from.”
Given more landscape companies are offering outdoor room design-build services to supplement their service offerings, Highwood USA added the new swings to fulfill the need for accent furnishings. The storage boxes were added, in part, to address the fact landscape designers and outdoor room contractors are often now working on projects with smaller square footage in residential settings. With homes and property lots trending smaller due to changes in real estate and building, space is at a premium. The storage boxes can be used to maximize patios and decks that are installed for multiple uses by the homeowners.
The new Highwood USA deck boxes were designed to store outdoor patio accessories such as cushions, flower pots and pool products. The boxes aid in keeping outdoor rooms organized and ready for entertaining as well as store accessories during the winter season. Available in two sizes, large and extra-large, both boxes feature watertight storage and base panel openings that allow for air circulation. Like all Highwood USA products, the deck boxes are manufactured from high-grade synthetic wood that is designed to have the look of real wood, but without the maintenance. The dimensions of the Large Deck Box are 42” Wide x 22” Deep x 22” High, and the King Size Deck Box is 60” Wide x 28” Deep x 24” High.
Highwood USA’s new 2013 product offering also features the Lehigh and Weatherly Porch Swings. Both porch swings are designed to be durable and weather-resistant with minimal color fading from season to season. The Lehigh Porch Swing matches the company’s standard Lehigh Bench and features a vertical flat back. Conversely, the Weatherly Porch Swing offers a gently contoured curved back.
Weatherly Porch SwingThe deck boxes and porch swings are flat packed to provide low shipping costs and are easy to assemble with high grade stainless steel (color matched) fasteners in less than 20 minutes, creating a unique selling point for vendors.
In addition, Highwood USA is introducing a new product finish color to its collection of outdoor furniture and accessories, Charleston Green. It is a dark green-black hue that will work well in both residential and commercial settings. Charleston Green is a well-known and beloved color seen on Charleston, S.C. house exteriors, shutters and fences for centuries. The company’s products are also available in White, Toffee, Weathered Acorn, and Coastal Teak.
