Our Story

Founded in 2009, Basil Bangs designs premium outdoor homewares that inspire the imagination and enrich life in nature.

Headed up by husband-and-wife duo, Mike Durante and Krista Huebner, Basil Bangs is guided by the desire to make timeless collections that celebrate the vibrant energy of summer while enhancing daily rhythms.

Not only for the home and beach, Basil Bangs proudly works with the trade and commercial sector, bringing sophisticated shade and custom designs to leading venues worldwide.

With a focus on superior materials, bold geometries and uncompromising quality, the company has established a creative legacy transforming art into practical coastal essentials to be enjoyed inside, outside and every day.

our first products

Le Pixel

Comprising of six designs, our very first collection of beach umbrellas was a celebration of bolt prints and vibrant colour. You might say that Basil Bangs made a bright statement from day one! Featured here is our best selling print, Le Pixel.

Our family expands...

The Love Rug

Inspired by the arrival of our own 'Baby Bangs', our family of products also expanded to include our iconic Love Rug. Changing the game for picnics and playtime forever, our spill-proof, padded and printed rugs have remained popular for babes of all ages.

We think differently

Why choose us?

With design at our core, we approach all product design from the ground up; nothing we make is sourced 'off the shelf' and rebadged as our own. We are constantly iterating, improving our materials and working on our finishes to keep delivering outstanding products that make your time outside even better.

We acknowledge the traditional owners of country throughout Australia and their continuing connection to land, culture and community. We pay our respects to elders past and present.
