The Ultimate Australian Home Giveaway - Day 4 - Tait Outdoor


5th July, 2012

Another amazing giveaway today - the fabulous Jak + Jil outdoor setting by Melbourne brand TAIT Outdoor, valued at $2410.

Oh my.  So much design goodness all in one week!  It's a bit exhausting isn't it?!

TODAY as promised we're back with another installment of the Ultimate Australian Home Giveaway - this time with something every great Australian home should certainly have, a stylish outdoor setting!

TAIT Outdoor were such an obvious choice for this category - a family owned business based in Melbourne, their entire range is made locally.  The company was originally founded by husband and wife team Gordon and Susan Tait in 1992, and has evolved since then from a small scale custom production operation to an incredible manufacturing business with a vast furniture and accessories range, and a strong retail presence.  In the past few years TAIT have really stepped things up - they've moved production to a much bigger factory, have opened their first store in Sydney, and have really established themselves as the go-to brand for excellent Australian-made contemporary outdoor furniture.

My absolute favourite from TAIT's collection is the Jak + Jil tables and chairs - pictured above in Horizon Blue.  HOW truly beautiful are they!?  This versatile range comes in a variety of size and surface options, powdercoated in basically any colour you could wish for.  The prize today is a 750mm diameter table and 2 chairs in Horizon Blue, valued at $2410 total!  SO immensely generous - thankyou Tait!
