More than 21 years of making, designing, collaborating, refining, manufacturing, styling, thinking, working and playing.
At Tait we design and produce premium products that celebrate the Australian outdoor lifestyle. Proudly Australian owned and made, our products have become part of a contemporary outdoor furniture vernacular that speaks to Australia’s unique way of life and culture.
Established in Melbourne in 1988 by Managing Director and sheet metal craftsman, Gordon Tait, and Creative Director, Susan Tait, we have a long and proud history of collaboration and mentorship. Through our work with talented local designers, both friends and colleagues, we produce collections that are of the moment yet designed to last a lifetime.
Our design philosophy is shaped by our strong heritage of making and manufacturing, inspiring the creation of beautiful and original outdoor furniture. Each piece begins with an idea, a concept that is refined, resolved and then prototyped by our team of committed craftspeople in our Melbourne factory. This allows us to focus on quality, developing collections that are sophisticated in design and construction.
We investigate widely to source the best possible materials and innovative techniques, ensuring that sustainability is paramount in everything we do and everything we produce.
Through our Tait flagship stores, our social and digital brand experiences, and our engagement and support of the design and arts communities, we seek to offer a truly unique customer experience. We look to excite and inspire with collections that reflect the way we live, fusing simple functionality, considered design and exceptional craftsmanship to enrich and complete A Life Outside.
