Since 1866, the Woodard name has been synonymous with unparalleled standards—core business principles established by the company’s founder, Lyman Woodard. Now as a wholly owned subsidiary of Craftmade International, Woodard not only continues its tradition of excellence in manufacturing, but is also poised to meet the needs of today’s outdoor-room owner. This spring, Woodard became even larger after it acquired substantially all of the assets of Whitecraft, Inc., a 100-year-old outdoor furniture company that specializes in hand-woven outdoor aluminum furniture. Long renowned in the casual-furniture industry for tastefully blending elegant style with superior craftsmanship and quality, Woodard continues to live up to its reputation with exciting new iron and cast aluminum collections. Check out two of their collections below.
Inspired by the casual beauty of island living, the Isla collection is constructed of cast aluminum and features detailed square finials as well as matching square castings in all four posts of the upper and lower legs, melding together the beautifully patterned cast seat, curled arms and matching curled legs. The unique back pattern is an artistic take on classic tropical décor and ties together the overall island inspired look of this chair together nicely. Available in dining and deep seating, Isla brings comfort and sophistication to any outdoor setting.
Generously crafted with full, wide swooping arms that decoratively curl at the ends and then taper down into aluminum extruded legs, the Bungalow collection is graceful and nicely scaled for optimum comfort. Featuring an elliptical back design framed by a square aluminum extrusion, Bungalow is the perfect transitional piece that nicely combines geometric shapes and structural details for artistic measure as well as comfort and support. Available in cushion, sling, and padded sling options with both dining and deep seating pieces as well as crescent-shaped pieces, Ridgecrest offers a full breadth of options to fit any style.
