All five collections include concealed hardware, which puts the focus on the beauty of the design, not on vandalism or maintenance concerns. The collections - Lewisburg, Heritage, Maclyn, Capital and Mod - are versatile and adaptable for many types of settings including parks, schools, transit hubs, municipal spaces, amusement parks and malls, among others. "Our new line of site furnishings blends form and function in an unprecedented way, offering a sense of style and design excellence not often seen in outdoor settings," said Matthew Miller, CEO of Playworld Systems. "The diverse options complement any historical period or architectural style to enhance the ambiance of a range of spaces."Inspired by interior design styles from the past several decades, the collections create comfortable and attractive spaces for conversation, leisure time, meet-and-greets and watching kids play. Each piece is constructed from quality, long-lasting materials such as cast aluminum and steel, with durable finishes to withstand heavy use. Like all Playworld Systems products, the site furnishings are PVC-free and use the company's Eco-Armor® coating designed to withstand the elements and daily wear.

Each collection offers unique features and benefits:

· The Lewisburg Collection evokes classic styling with graceful lines indicative of Victorian design, re-imagined with fresh elements like durable aluminum construction designed for longevity and lasting beauty. The seating also features the company's new cherry wood grain finish, which further enhances the line's historic flair.

· The Heritage Collection offers traditional styling with a European flair. The line's clean, classic profile suits any location. The contoured furnishings offer comfort and sophistication, and will work in any setting to create impressive seating areas.

· The Maclyn Collection presents effortless design by combining beautiful arch shapes and gentle curves reminiscent of Art Deco design. Fluid sloping lines add an air of modern grace and elegance. These site furnishings add dramatic flair to any setting.

· The Capital Collection features smooth, rolling lines and rounded edges for a modern take on traditional site furnishings. Simple styling and a stylish streamlined silhouette coordinate with different architectural styles for use in a variety of spaces.

· The Mod Collection incorporates modern, minimalist design with clean, straight lines. Ideal for industrial or clean architectural styled space, the line also offers a unique look when contrasted with softer shapes and textures.

The new collections expand Playworld Systems' site furnishings product lines and complement the company's Family Furnishings and Essentials site furnishings. From unique picnic tables with tot seats to stylized benches, the company's diverse product line offers attractive and useful options for every space.
