One of the key things to keep in mind is quality and materials.

With such strong sun and UV levels in New Zealand, our outdoor furniture needs to endure a lot. So, by selecting strong and proven out door furniture materials, and purchasing through a reputable and knowledgeable store, you can feel safe in knowing that not only will your furniture look great when it arrives but shall stand the test of time.

Also consider your outdoor space, is it a covered outdoor room or open to all elements? Some outdoor furniture will need to be stored, or at least the soft furnishing portions if your space is not covered or protected from the change in season.


Don't forget the stylings of Dawson & Co 

This outdoor table has a nice industrial edge, whilst combining the warmth of Timber. 

Part of the 'Wells Range' at  Dawson and Co.
