Shiny Happy Furniture from Melbourne

Issue 82 · Australia by Design · July 23, 2013

Possibly the cheeriest patio pieces we've seen yet: indoor/outdoor furniture from Melbourne-based Tait, made for "all the brilliant weather that Australia can throw at it."

Owned by husband and wife team Gordon and Susan Tait, the outfit manufactures all pieces in the company's factory in Thornbury and "sources local materials and commissions artisans as needed."

Tait has locations in Melbourne and Sydney; for more information, go to Tait.
