Searching for outdoor furniture I was super excited to discover Tait. A beautifully designed collection of well made, sustainable out door furniture, purpose built to withstand the Australian climate ….. so it’s got to be tough, right?
From small factory beginnings in Melbourne Tait was established in 1992 by Gordon and Susan Tait. The creative couple, Gordon a sheet metal craftsman and Susan a creative textile designer, saw a gap in the market for well-made outdoor furniture. Combining their skills they set out to fill the gap, 27 years on they collaborate with top Australian designers to produce iconic collections that are all proudly created entirely in Australia
Really difficult to pick a favorite, BUT top of my list would be ….
Trace Collection by Adam Goodrum, a stunning combination of Aluminium, Stainless Steel Mesh and Sustainable Timber. Pictured in Mokum Club Tropicalia South Beach outdoor velvet and Catherine Martin’s Tropicalia print.
Flint by Ross Gardam, is aptly described as robust yet refined extending the leg detail to the table top is a clever twist.
Take a moment to browse through the Tait projects page it’s inspiring!
