Chances are if you have travelled along Hwy 7A just east of Hwy 35 and west of Bethany you have seen a large red Muskoka chair – fitting for a giant sized character out of your children’s fairy tale books!


The Big Red Chair located West of Bethany!


Just beyond the big red chair is a virtual rainbow of more standard sized chairs in such shades as Bright Red, Lemon Yellow, Kiwi Green, Aruba Blue, Orange,  Pacific Blue, Weatherwood, Cedar, Forest Green, Navy Blue, Slate Grey, Dove Grey, Cherry, Chocolate Brown, Black, Teak, Mahogany, Sandstone  and of course White.

These are ‘Cottage Chairs’, manufactured by Willow Green Ltd. – a family run business located in Bethany, Ontario on the Oak Ridges Moraine. Cottage chairs are perfect for your dock, your cottage or in your back yard in the city.

The concept is simple. Cottage chairs are made from a new eco-friendly option to traditional wood – recycled plastic. In fact, they are made from ground up milk jugs, creating a high density polyethylene (HDPE) product. There are a number of advantages of using HDPE besides being good for the environment:

  • A wide selection of colours
  • HDPE includes UV protection to help resist fading
  • Eliminates the need to paint
  • Does not peel, split, crack, absorb water, or support bacterial growth so it is ideal for cottage and patio use
  • Stainless fasteners and hardware eliminates rust and maintenance
  • Reduces the need to manufacture new plastic which helps to conserve the world’s oil supply while diverting valuable plastic from our landfills

…And the company is 100% Canadian!


Although they started out manufacturing 1 style of chair and a few accessories, they now carry 100 different items and 13 styles of Muskoka chairs offering Ontario’s largest selection of recycled plastic outdoor furniture. In addition to chairs you can purchase:

  • End tables
  • Benches
  • Swings
  • Rockers
  • Picnic tables
  • Outdoor bars and dining tables.

If you would like to know more or see the array of products for yourself, take a drive to 990 Hwy 7A in Bethany, L0A 1A0.
