Promising brighter days just ahead, Australian outdoor design house, Tait, presents its Spring/Summer 2021 collection, Horizon Lines.
September 22nd, 2021
In light of recent world events having us hauled up in our homes, for months on end, Tait has shifted the lens to focus on connecting more intentionally with our outdoor space — in the comfort of its Spring/Summer 2021 collection, Horizon Lines. As spaces that allow us to create moments of escape, take a deep breath of fresh air, feel energising sunshine on our skin, and share memories with those we love — there’s something unfaltering about the way spending time outdoors manages to fill our cup.
Encouraging outdoor living as a way of life, the collection offers various modes of elevated lounging and dining. Presenting luxurious pool-side dining, dining arrangements for large festive gatherings, impromptu dining options for smaller spaces, as well as scenes of expansive and cocooning lounging, and sling-style lounging for the deck.
As the cornerstone of the collection, we see Tait’s Trace Dining family take centre stage. The epitome of luxury outdoor dining, it features a marbled heavy-duty porcelain tabletop with smoked oak benching and is paired with Tait’s wave-inspired stainless steel Tidal chairs. Nestled between terraced native landscaping and a sublime edgeless pool, the atmosphere is prime for serene sunset dinners.
For the first time, Tait reveals a new lounging typology, the Zephyr Lounger, designed by prominent Australian designer, Charles Wilson. The nautically-influenced lounger features windswept, graceful lines and offers cool comfort through its sling-style design and breathable canvas.
The Spring/Summer 2021 collection also presents a landmark collaboration for the brand titled, ‘Woven Skies’, with Willie Weston, who work with Indigenous-owned art centres to create textiles for contemporary Australian environments. The collaboration incorporates Willie Weston’s high-performance outdoor fabrics, featuring designs by artists from some of the most remote parts of Australia: Ampilatwatja, the Tiwi Islands and Fitzroy Crossing.
Each design celebrates the artists’ connection to native plant life and seasonal changes, and feature across Tait’s iconic Australian designed and made pieces.
Overlooking the tea tree-lined dunes and majestic rocky outcrops of Blairgowrie’s back beach, Horizon Lines feels right at home.
Situated at the tip of Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula, the exposed environment speaks to the collections resilience and high performance in the extreme coastal elements. Employing corrosion-resistant metals, dimensionally stable timbers, reticulated and mould-resistant foams and exterior-grade fabrics, each piece has been designed and made to enjoy a long life. Dressed in warm and welcoming tones of eucalypt green’s and woody grey’s, and complemented by hints of earthen reds, the collection presents a palette that is both timeless and of the moment.
All pieces from Tait’s Spring/Summer 2021 collection, Horizon Lines, are available to order now.
