Hi and welcome to Outside Space.
We offer a range of high-quality well designed outdoor furniture for kiwis who have discerning taste, an appreciation for quality, but do not want to overspend. By religiously keeping our overheads low, we deliver well-priced quality outdoor products that New Zealanders really want.
Our Summer 2022 ranges are in stock now! This means no precarious (and often unreliable) pre-ordering is required, so you can be enjoying your purchase by the weekend or we’ll store your furniture if your area isn’t quite ready. But be warned, we sell out every year, so don’t delay or you may be disappointed.
Our outdoor lounge suites feature Sunbrella®, or Agora® fabric, both of which offer a 5-year sun fade warranty that you won’t find at mainstream retail stores.
Our approach seems to be working as we have yet to experience a summer season where our supply has met demand. Most of the product images featured on our website were taken in the homes of our clients, and we are extremely proud that this portfolio of inspiring and authentic kiwi outdoor settings continues to grow. See you at our newly-expanded showroom/warehouse.
Too busy to visit or from outside Auckland? Simply buy online. We’ve shipped directly to online customers in Kerikeri, Whangarei, Papamoa, Tauranga, Whangamata, Napier, Taupo, Picton, Nelson, New Plymouth, Wellington, Christchurch, Dunedin, Queenstown and Wanaka so you can feel confident when you buy online from us.
About us: How did this venture of ours come about?
My personal quest to find lovely yet affordable quality outdoor furniture to enhance our family’s outdoor living had always been an unfulfilling one. Each year, I’d explore the options available to me from the big box hardware stores’ low-price low-quality options to mid-range (but not inexpensive) boring options from reputable furniture stores, and then finally perused designer-type collections only to be jolted back to reality when I peeked at the 5-figure price tag.
I realised that other mere middle-class mortals like myself shared the same general frustration, so decided I could do something about this. The result is Outside Space. Now in our fifth season, despite our growth, we remain a family-run business.
My background is in Marketing having worked for big private and listed companies for 20 years, and my partner, Steve has a long history in the retail industry, having founded Amazon Surf Wear which he grew to 40 stores across NZ. He now runs an Asia-based design and sourcing business helping retail clients in NZ, Australia and China with their commercial fit outs.
So, we both know a thing or two about what people really want and how to get it to them.
Enjoy shopping and ask us anything.
Our Auckland warehouse and beautiful showroom!

Otherwise, contact us anytime, as we are receiving online orders and delivering our furniture 7 days a week.
We are very aware that our product needs to suit New Zealand’s harsh and unforgiving elements. We also understand that New Zealanders have a ‘love hate’ relationship with their outdoor furniture- They buy their beautiful-looking outdoor furniture in the hope that ‘this one will last the distance!” but are sometimes disappointed with the lack of longevity they achieve from their purchase.
We have done our homework and have chosen high quality reputable materials, such as quick drying foam, Sunbrella ® and Tuvatextil Agora® fabric in the manufacturing process and have partnered with long-established manufacturers that supply to an impressive list of retail and direct clients worldwide. One of our manufacturers supplies outdoor furniture to one of the major cruise liners-and they talked to us about their full understanding of the impact of saltwater and sun on outdoor products from their experience over the years.
It is in our best interest to source quality product, and we do warranty our product.
