TREND ALERT | If you don’t have a fire pit,
you’re missing out on one of the mos t nos talgic outdoo r
trends. Reminiscent of times spent around bonfires,
these modern versions bring people together, and help
to beat off the first signs of the big chill. We love Tait’s
Rock Mar tin firepit, $566.50 (plus fi rewo od!). Design

Here’s the perfect complement to the native garden. This Paviom Aptus bollard
light, by award-winning designer Terence Woodgate and inspired by the sculpture
of Spanish artist Eduardo Chillida, comes in a finish – Corten steel – that responds
to the environment. When it’s sunny, it’s almost a burnt orange; when it rains, it
c han ges to a d ar k, ea r thy colour. Other finish es include Gra phite Black and Bronze.
Priced from $1350. It’s pitched at the commercial market, but equally suits home
exteriors. Lighting Options Australia (08) 6142 4977, lightingoptionsau stralia.com .a u .
SOFA SO GOOD
Comfort and clean lines meet in Harbour Outdoor’s
Balmora l four-s eate r sof a. In a slim or w ide fra me of powder-coated aluminium, it
screams style and comes in fabric that fights off mildew and fading. The range also

from $3310/modula r pieces from $1075. Majool (08) 9380 6822, majool.com.au.
We love the Clovelly table
in 2m or 2.6m (from $1790) and
ch airs (from $280) from Majool. In
powder-coa ted, z inc-plated steel, it’s a
killer style combo with the thick lines of the
table paired with the slender shape of the
chairs. Options are white Batyline mesh
chair backs and taupe Sunbrella
fabric seat c ushions. More
