Harrison and Nicholas Condos are proud to continue a legacy Harbour Outdoor, continuing the trend of great design their father started in 1976 with Tecno.

The Condos family is well known for their handcrafted furniture and attention to detail in design. Since the mid ‘70s, the name has been tied to design, detail, and architecture, through Jim Condos’ Tecno Furniture brand, and the same passion that inspired Jim has driven his sons to launch Harbour Outdoor
This familial tie informs the fusion of tradition and modernity within the Harbour Outdoor range, as does the brothers’ Australian roots in design. Much of the brand’s design references modern beach houses, effortlessly blending into rugged coastline while maintaining design elegance
Harbour has a focus on outdoor lifestyle furniture of unique design, long lasting durability, and a strong sense of Australian culture and climate.
“We’re a lifestyle brand, steeped in a culture that promotes the Australian way of life,” the brothers say “This includes our love of harbour life, outdoors, travel, nature, modern design all expressed through each and every single furniture collection. Our signature aesthetic is fresh, light, modern, coastal, luxe-inspired and stems from generations of Australian design. Our customers are not only attracted to our style, it’s the underlying Australian story of our family history and the craftsmanship.”
Australia’s lifestyle being so linked to the outdoors has played a key part in informing the design of Harbour Outdoor, with the brand’s pieces being specifically designed to withstand the intense weather that Australia is known for, eschewing a trend of fragility amongst luxury pieces.
Five years into the brand, the team of two has now expanded to twenty, with a factory facility in China, Sydney showroom and numerous retail locations across the United States. Recently, the brand has moved indoors with the launch of Harbour House, the company’s first collection not primarily designed with the sun and rain in mind.
