When it comes to outdoor furniture, the conditions we face here in Australia are some of the most testing in the world. As a consumer this means you must be very careful when choosing your outdoor furniture. What seems like a good deal at the time, really can ‘unravel’ (no pun intended) when the wicker or outdoor product is tested to our harsh climate. Here at The Furniture Shack, we are outdoor furniture specialists who pride ourselves on building our business, products and philosophy on customer feedback.

When we buy an outdoor product we know price is of upmost importance to our customers, but we also know that if we buy ‘cheap’ and dont do our research and testing, then the shack and our customers will get dudded. Over 15 years we have refined our products and suppliers in order to try to find the perfect balance of price and quality. We test our products and have 15 years of research and development to back up our products. 

When we meet with our suppliers and negotiate prices we will never negotiate on quality and 9 times out of 10 this will be the first thought of the supplier. If they use thinner aluminium or steel sure they can shave dollars off. If they use thinner wicker, lower density foam and non-waterproof fabric then at the end of the day they will be selling you a super cheap product! You won’t know it when you are comparing products online – but that is the beauty of our products.

With our network of bricks and mortar stores we invite real people come instore – look, sit, feel – turn the item upside down! The feedback from our instore customers helped us shape the online store and the products that we offer to our Australia wide customer base today.


Introducing The Furniture Shack’s Outdoor Inspirations Collection

Our Outdoor Inspirations Range is made exclusively from EcoSense™. EcoSense™ is a state of the art all weather rattan designed specifically to suit the harsh elements of the Australian environment. It is created using a synthetic, durable, highly flexible polyethylene fibre and can be utilised in any outdoor scenario. It is 100% recyclable, non-toxic and applies UV stabilising technology to protect it from harmful UV rays and extreme weather conditions. Australian tried and tested.

We would like to introduce you to our pride and joy – The Outdoor Inspirations lounge collection! Sleek European design has been crossed with comfort and practicality to ensure that your new suite will not only be a feature but a place where you can get lost in your own outdoor space. All outdoor lounge packages feature an aluminium machine welded framework to avoid rust or corrosion right down to a polyethylene EcoSense™ synthetic rattan that has been tested to withstand the harsh elements of the Australian environment.

We understand that each outdoor space is different and that is why we are flexible when it comes to creating your very own package! The range is extremely strong and durable and can be left outside all year round. It requires very little maintenance and can be hosed down to clean.
Our designs are exclusive to The Furniture Shack and have been hand selected and modified to suit your outdoor space. We have been doing this for 15 years and we have listened. You have told us that quality, comfort and design should not be a luxury, it should be standard and we agree.
