The Design

We wanted a very upmarket Director’s Chair for clients who want to distinguish their properties from those purchasing our other Director’s Chairs. Richard Lowe thought long and hard about this, and decided to build a chair using all turned components in Zambezi Teak. Even the tenon joints are turned on the lathe by hand to exactly fit mortice holes that were pre-drilled into the square stock. The beautifully hand turned components are measured by the expert eye of our master craftsmen. We then commissioned the connecting hinges out of solid polished brass, and decided on an antique genuine leather double quilted seat and back cover. The result is a unique chair that has certainly grabbed the attention of many interior decorators.

The material used.

The Kruger Director’s Chair uses solid brass hinges compliment the hand worked Zambezi Teak. Zambezi teak is a very attractive red-brown timber and exceptionally hard. Our normal finishing coat is a lacquer, but an oil finish is also available.

Seat covers can be either quilted genuine upholstery leather or a high quality Auto seat canvas designed for top of the range SUVs.

Where is the Kruger Director’s Chair used?

Generally the Kruger Director’s Chair is purchased by upmarket Safari Lodges for their dining chairs. They have also been purchased as office chairs and for verandas.

To protect your lacquered finish please place your table away from direct sunlight. Apply a good furniture wax or polish, initially twice a month, thereafter once a month. Apply sufficient to thinly cover the surface. As it dries (becomes dull) buff with a clean cloth until a beautiful sheen is achieved. Between waxings, keep the finish clean with a soft cloth or duster, and buff without wax.


Your oiled Kruger Director’s Chair receives two applications of The African Touch Furniture Oil prior to delivery. Our outlets carry stock, should you require it. We recommend you re-apply when the finish looks faded or dry. The recommended application procedure is as follows:

  • Wipe surface down with a clean cotton cloth lightly moistened with mineral turpentine. (Ensure that all surfaces are completely dry and clean before proceeding with the next step)
  • Use a clean cotton cloth or soft bristled brush dipped in the oil and apply in light, short strokes, ensuring thorough and even distribution of the oil.
  • Leave the oil on the furniture for at least 1 to 2 hours (but not more than 24 hours), to allow absorption into the wood.
  • Use a clean cotton cloth and wipe off all excess liquid to leave a natural smooth finish.
  • Allow to dry for approximately 24 hours.

If a wet glass or similar is left on the surface it may leave a watermark. In this case please wipe the water off as soon as possible, and if necessary apply some more Satinwood 28 base. If the mark is still slightly visible you can rub with a little baking soda mixed with an equal part of water, wipe off with a damp cloth and re-apply the oil.

We cannot offer a warrantee on chairs except for defects in material and workmanship that affect the integrity of the chair under normal use and weight limits. The reason for this is that chairs can be subject to huge stresses (such as when a heavy person rocks back on the back legs) that are impossible to compensate for in the construction of the chair without compromising on the design appeal.

We build with timber harvested from natural forests. The charm of this material is that no two pieces are exactly the same in colour, character or grain, and they will contain natural imperfections such as knots, stress cracks and so on that enhance their authenticity and attractiveness. As a result no 2 pieces will ever be identical and products may have natural imperfections. However, these will never be allowed to compromise the quality of construction of your piece.

For orders of 20 Kruger Director’s Chairs or more we offer a 10% discount.
