MINNEAPOLIS -- April 15, 2004 -Â Spring is here. Homeowners are coming out of hibernation to start getting their lawns, gardens and outdoor living areas ready for summer. For many, this means buying new outdoor furniture. Twin Cities consumers have a new alternative. Lifewood, the naturally handsome outdoor wood furniture from Creative Woodwork International (CWI), is available locally at HoigaardÂs, Lyndale Garden & Hardware Center and Tangletown Gardens.
ÂOur manufacturer skillfully crafts our Lifewood furniture from eucalyptus and balau, two premium tropical hardwoods that are as durable as teak, yet much more affordable,Â says Bernadette Carroll, president, CWI. ÂAll wood used in the construction of our furniture comes from forests and plantations certified according to Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) international standards for environmentally sensitive, sustainable harvesting. From seed in the ground to finished furniture, Lifewood is eco-friendly.Â
Lifewood from CWI embraces two distinctive collections, Lifeware and Veranda, which bring character and style to outdoor living. With its exclusive and ingenious modular design, Lifeware enables consumers to select and connect seven individual chair and table modules to create fifty customized seating and dining configurations. The European-inspired Veranda Collection features clean lines and simple elegance and includes more than thirty intriguing styles of benches and armchairs, collapsible seating, loungers and deck chairs, cafÃ© and dining tables, and dining sets.
ÂThe exceptional styling and affordable price point of CWIÂs Lifewood furniture, plus the fact that its wood is responsibly harvested, make it an attractive choice,Â says Todd Brewer, buyer for HoigaardÂs.
Gail Kanz, buyer for Lyndale Garden, agrees: ÂCWIÂs Lifewood collections offer a wonderful value for the price. The international design of the Veranda Collection is striking and appealing, and many consumers will like the modular versatility of Lifeware.Â
