The design

The High Back hardwood chair is one of our original designs, with those hand built twenty-five years ago still giving sterling service. They are ruggedly constructed with great care and attention to producing perfect mortice and tenon joints that will ensure the integrity of the chair for generations to come.

The curved, angled, backrest make this a very comfortable chair, ideally suited to more formal settings. The chair is designed to have a solid wood seat (our standard) or genuine bovine leather upholstered seat (all African Touch chairs look stunning with upholstered leather seats).

Materials used

The high back hardwood chair can be built from Zambezi Teak (Rhodesian Teak), African Bloodwood (kiaat) or Plantation Hardwood (eucalyptus species).  Both an oil and a lacquer finish are available, but we only recommend the lacquer for interior use.

Where the High Back Chair is used.

This chair is often bought with our Shangani Table  or Restaurant Table and is excellent as an upmarket restaurant chair. It has been used in camps and lodges all over southern Africa. I visited a lodge in 2018 that had chairs bought in 1993, and they were still in great condition!

Maintaining your Safari High Back Chair and leather

Maintaining your Safari High Back Chair and leather

Leather covers.

To protect and nourish your leather covers, we recommend you use Hide Food from Stapol. We carry stocks of Hide Food in our outlets should you require it.

Firstly clean the leather with a damp cloth. Hide Food should always be applied using a lint free cloth, a natural or synthetic sponge using an even circular motion. Drying is temperature related but the cream generally dries in a couple of minutes after which it can be buffed with a polish brush or soft cloth. It will renovate and provide an elegant lustre. It also provides a good degree of water resistance.

Timber Frame

To protect your lacquered timber frame place furniture away from direct sunlight (this will also protect the leather). 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.
