An outstanding pair of 'Safari' lounge chairs, wood, black leather and brass, Peshawar, Pakistan, 1970s.


This 'Safari' armchair is a classic. ‘Roorkee’ chairs are campaign chairs that were commonly used by British officials from the late 19th century through to mid 20th century. The collapsable teak frame complements the hand-stitched black leather seat. Makers mark to the teak frame. An elegant and well designed line, in combination with carefully crafted wood joints.


The arms are distinctive leather straps held by chic brass buckles. The black leather with multiple straps completes this chair's characteristic safari-look. The slightly tapered wooden legs are very elegant and show a smart and basic construction.
