About Safari Chairs

Considered to be one of the first "build-it-yourself" pieces of furniture, the safari chair can be easily disassembled and put together thanks to its unique construction. Designed in 1933 by Kaare Klint, its design was based on a British officer's chair depicted in a travel guide to Africa. The safari chair makes a great accent chair for a contemporary or retro living room. Add it next to a fireplace or display it alongside a side table to create an accented corner. Use these chairs as dining table chairs to add character to your dining parties. These folding chairs can be easily tucked away to create more space. In addition, their light, airy look can create a natural mood for an organically inspired setting. The chairs come in beautiful oak wood and rosewood finishes with leather covers, buckles, straps, and brass or metal bolts. To choose from different styles, browse the vast inventory on eBay. Chairs with cream-colored fabrics are great for creating a beach inspired setting in a sunroom. Place these chairs in your patio or garden to create an earthen charm. Add two identical chairs in dark accents to your home office or library. They are also good for reclining and casual seating with friends and family.
