“With each new piece, our approach was to refine and prototype, at times to a fault, in order to ensure Tait products would stand up to the harsh outdoor conditions inherent in the lifestyle of Australians.
“In the ’90s, building high-performance outdoor furniture was new and innovative in the outdoor design space, and today we find our approach still resonates,” said Gordon Tait.
“Outdoor furniture in Australia by nature faces the harshest of conditions, with each piece requiring an unwavering dedication to deliver functional benefits that withstand the environment, while presenting as a calm and inviting focal point to be welcomed into the most intimate of personal spaces,” added.

The Tait design philosophy is shaped by a strong manufacturing heritage, steeped in quality and craftsmanship. It is a place of design and making, where products are created demonstrating a resolved sophistication in each facet of the design and manufacturing process.
Tait has offset 25 tonnes of CO2, equivalent to saving 631 trees or driving 98,000 kilometres. Tait also diverts almost one tonne of soft plastics per year from landfill.
