Our Story

MADE TO ENRICH OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE OUTDOORS.
MADE TO WITHSTAND TIME AND TRENDS.
MADE MINDFULLY IN MELBOURNE.
MADE BY TAIT.

Established in 1992 by husband and wife, Gordon and Susan Tait, Tait began in a small factory in Melbourne, Australia. Gordon, a sheet metal craftsman, and Susan, a creative textile designer, noticed an absence for well-designed, well-made outdoor products – both reflective of Australia’s enviable outdoor lifestyle and built to withstand the harsh Australian elements. Collaborating with a legion of Australia’s most influential and prominent design talent, including, Adam Goodrum, Justin Hutchinson, Trent Jansen and Adam Cornish; Tait have produced a number of iconic collections, renowned for their originality, functional design and longevity.

Tait’s products encourage new ways of thinking about how we live outdoors. Tait believe that good design can enrich our relationship with the outdoors and have a profound impact on our wellbeing. Enjoying coffee in the morning sun, lazy afternoons lounging poolside and lively family barbecue’s at twilight, life’s beautiful moments are made outside.

Resistant to time and trends, Tait products are minimalist in form and honest in materiality. With Australia’s harsh climate and love for coastal living, Tait engineer their products to achieve outstanding durability whilst being low in maintenance. Built with high-performance materials, world-class manufacturing methods and uncompromising quality, a Tait piece is designed to become a lifelong companion.

With a product range spanning over thirteen collections, from outdoor dining and kitchen’s to public space, Tait offer an all-encompassing outdoor living approach. For over twenty-five years Tait have serviced a diverse range of projects, including, landscape, government, corporate, hospitality, retail and commercial sectors. Using both advanced machinery and the hand-made, Tait offer the scope to cater to numerous residential projects as well as large-scale commercial projects.

Through their sublime showroom’s in Melbourne and Sydney, their online store, as well as a network of local and international dealers, Tait offer their customers a truly inimitable outdoor living experience.
