After dinner, head out and go shopping! The Lifetime kids' furniture is hitting Costco stores this week!

This chair is 100% made in the USA by our own Utah employees. Compost your clippings!

Black Friday!!!

What is your favorite part of Thanksgiving? My wife’s favorite part is going shopping! I find more satisfaction in staying home, eating too much, and watching football, but, to each their own. I went one year with my wife and after I got beat by a bunch of spry and motivated ladies while trying to get some sheets, I decided to retire from Black Fridaying (is that even a word?). My goal is to help you know where you can find our products. With so many different retailers carrying our products, I wanted to help you wade through the mess.

The Kids’ Table is Now the Cool Table

I can’t even tell you how excited I am about our new Kid’s Furniture! This is a project that the whole company has rallied around – even employees can’t wait to get their hands on these! The Lifetime Children’s Square Folding Table and Stacking Chairs are hitting Costco stores this week! They are absolutely perfect for homes, daycares, parties, etc. and would be great as your kids’ Thanksgiving Table this year. The table comes in our traditional almond color, and the cute stack chairs are available in blue, green, and almond. The great thing about our tables and chairs is that they clean up super easily. They can handle food spills, finger paints, and craft paints, coloring, etc. Another thing I love about these products is they are unique! At Lifetime, we are inventors, ...

Love my Pumpkin Carving Table!

Halloween is such a fun time of year! Who doesn’t love costumes, face paint, spooky decorations – and my personal favorite – pumpkin carving?! So last night, my husband and I set out on our pumpkin carving adventure. My husband not only carves pumpkins, but he is amazing at shaving in faces, and doing all sorts of cool stuff. Over the years, he has helped me get more and more into it as well. Since I knew this was going to get pretty messy, I didn’t really want to use my wooden kitchen table, so I decided to pull out my trusty 4-Foot Fold-In-Half Lifetime Table. We live in a smaller apartment, so this is the perfect table for us. It is super easy to store and fi...

Manufacturing Day 2014

Happy Manufacturing Day! You might be wondering, why are we so excited to celebrate Manufacturing Day? Because that’s what we do! For over 25 years, we’ve worked to turn raw steel coils and plastic pellets into products each of us can use everyday! I’ve been a supporter of Lifetime for years. Long before I ever worked here.

It is a source of millions of jobs and the products we all use every day. Today has ...

Our Latest Innovation

Every Lifetime product has its niche and purpose. Every market niche has a need. For the past two years, we’ve been designing, re-thinking, and bringing new definition to the residential tables and chairs market.

Garbage Stinks. Compost Doesn’t.

I had the very unpleasant experience recently of dumping excess lawn clippings directly into my garbage can. The can set out in the sun for a few days before I brought it into the garage. A few days later, WHOA! The can smelled like a skunk had stepped in dog doo-doo, rolled around in raw sewage, and then died in there. I was reminded once again, that lawn clippings should not go directly into the garbage can! I have a composter and do a fair amount of composting. To which, I add lawn clippings when I have brown material to balance it out. The ratio is 1 part green: 20 parts brown.  I am often asked by people who don’t compost if the compost stinks. The answer is no. That sounds strange because of the waste product that goes into making good compost, but it’s true. If the proportions of green and b...

Who will win the 2014 World Cup Final? Germany is the favorite to beat Argentina Sunday, but if you have ever watched arguably the best soccer player in the world, Lionel Messi for Argentina, I’m not so sure.  I personally wouldn't bet against a team that includes Messi. It would be like betting against the Chicago Bulls teams when Michael Jordan was still playing. With soccer and the MLS becoming more popular in the U.S.A., the World Cup this year has been a big deal in America (Did you see all the fans at Grant Park in Chicago?). The U.S. team’s first World Cup match, a 2-1 victory, was ESPN’s most watched men’s soccer game ever. The cool thing about the sport is not just that the matches involving the U.S. are getting viewers, but all matches are getting more viewers. I am personally a newbie ... More

I don't like my soccer goal because…
"We had a soccer goal designed to come apart for transport, but it didn't stay together when we needed it." "Past soccer goals just could not stand up to the daily usage." "The thing that I have been disappointed about in soccer goals is that when the winter comes it is so hard to find a place large enough to put them away." "My children have two fold-up soccer goals that go in bags for storage. They never put them up when they are done playing and the fabric goals are a wet, soggy mess every time it rains!" "I don't like that it always falls apart when we move it!" "We didn't like how hard it was to collapse them and then put them back up." Do any of these comments about soccer goals sound familiar? They should because YOU wrote them! Yes, these are just a few of the things actual giveaway entrants said they didn't lik...
From Factory to Floor to You
Over the years, weve told you about how our blow-molded products are made, and how our metals are powder-coated to protect them, but how does the whole process work, anyway? I certainly didn't know before I started working for Lifetime. But, here at the Freeport Center, all your products begin from scratch. When I was first hired, I had the chance to tour the entire facility. And it was probably one of the most amazing things Ive ever seen. No kidding. Did you know that in our blow-molding facility, our High Density Polyethylene (HDPE)plastic starts out as beads that are pumped from the trains to the building silos? The beads are melted and poured into the blow-molding forms. When the formed part comes out, Lifetime employees remove excess plastic and prepare them for assembly. In metals, our roll-former slowly rolls and fo...
