Luangwa Field Chair


The African Touch Field Chair is a fine example of how simple design can produce a chair of superb comfort and functionality. The self tightening reinforced canvas seat and carefully designed angled backrest give a practical field chair that is very comfortable to sit in. The Chair folds into a perfect flat pack into which a 400 x 400 Safari Folding Table can be slid and the whole carried in a canvas cover. Ideal for packing into your Safari vehicle or as a great chair on the verandah at home that can be put away when not needed.

Recommended weight limit 80kg (180lb). Please do not rock back and forth on any chair.

For more information on the Field Chair, please see Product Information below.

The Field Chair, the epitome of a good folding picnic chair, is named after the iconic Luangwa National Park located in northeastern Zambia. It is one of the best-known national parks in Africa for walking safaris and where we feel our Field Chair would be a great fit.

Constructed from carefully selected timbers of African Mahogany. Emphasis is places on straight grained pieces that ensure maximum strength to the Field Chair. As one sits on the canvas seat, it stretches, giving a taught, comfortable base. The flexible legs of the chair settle with the weight onto the floor, even when that floor is uneven,  giving a stable seat.

The light weight and compact design of the Field Chair makes it the ideal folding picnic chair for sporting events, weekend visits to your local park or camping trips. The timber is treated with our special outdoor furniture oil, which is very easy to re-apply once the rich mahogany timber colour starts to fade. It is used in many similar situations to our Director’s Chairs, Safari Chair or Roorkhee Chair.  They are ideal for large events where the rich colour and grain of the timber and beautifully stitched, quilted, waterproof, canvas adds so much more class than the standard plastic chairs sometimes used at such occasions. Safari Camps love them for seating around the fire at night and swapping yarns, or for organising bush dinners or game drive drinks stops for guests.

Oiled product.

Your oiled Field 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.

The African Touch will not in any circumstances be liable for any claim which falls outside the scope of our warranty or for any consequential damages whatsoever.

We offer 10% discount for large orders and to Professional designers and decorators. Please contact us to arrange your discount.
