Founded in 1978, today’s Summer Classics® is a far cry from its humble beginnings as a plastic umbrella base manufacturer. When Bew White III, president and CEO of Summer Classics, graduated from Auburn University in 1970 with a degree in textile engineering, the phrase “outdoor room” had hardly been coined. A weather-worthy chair was little more than a lightweight aluminum frame colorfully, though delicately wrapped in pliable vinyl tubing.
In the 2000s, Summer Classics was ahead of the game with the introduction of a type of product that was a proper match for the technological boom, and exhausted boomers of the new millennium: resin wicker. No longer did one have to worry about organic wicker material cracking and breaking after extended exposure to weather, especially after the sun’s UV rays degraded its structural integrity on a molecular level. Combining resin wicker with wrought aluminum frames, Summer Classics began producing innovative outdoor furniture that maintained the beauty of natural wicker, but could withstand five years of outdoor exposure without the first signs of cracking or discoloration. The end product was lightweight, comfortable, fashionable and built to last.
Summer Classics is now known in all 50 states and throughout Canada. We ship this durable and well-warranted line of outdoor patio furniture nearly anywhere in the United States and offer it in our Atlanta area retail location, as well!
