Shiny Happy Furniture from Melbourne

Julie Carlson June 05, 2014

Possibly the cheeriest patio pieces we’ve seen yet: indoor/outdoor furniture from Tait of Melbourne, 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, visit Tait.

Above: Designed by Adam Goodrum, the Volley Rocker features a zinc-plated steel frame, mesh seat panel, and rope handles (it’s available in a range of powder-coated colors).

Above: The Volley Dining Chair.

Above: Tait’s powder-coated steel Softline Planters feature hidden casters for easy portability.

Above: Good One Table and Stools, designed by Alastair Keating.

Above: The Good One Stools feature a punched-out cross detail.
