Press release: Model Safari
The ultimate safari chair



What can we do to create the ultimate safari chair? Eilersen answered this question by looking back to a time when furniture was mostly handmade. And now, it is this handwork that allows Eilersen to launch the ultimate safari chair.

Eilersen uses its very own upholsterer, trained in this noble craft and tasked with the production of the new safari chair - a product that is made by hand, evaluated visually and where each piece of leather is specifically selected.


Made by an upholsterer

In 2016, Eilersen re-launched its safari chair because a simple, light chair is the perfect accompaniment to a soft and comfortable sofa. Now, Eilersen is ready to present an upgrade of the same chair - a safari chair with a leather seat and back, hand-sewn and worked by an upholsterer.

Apart from the excellent craftsmanship, Eilersen also pays special attention to the leather and the way it is worked. To get a softer, more refined look, the leather is treated and finished with beeswax, which is also an old treatment method.

The seat, back and armrest are available in natural untreated, cognac and black, and they are attached to a solid frame of oiled, soap treated or black lacquered oak.

Since the 1930s, many design firms have come up with their definitive offering for trendsetting furniture design, and in the 1960s, Eilersen's furniture designer Erik Woertz was asked to come up with his own version of a safari chair. With its slender appearance and simple design, the Safari chair is now an icon in the modern history of style. And now, after the chair has been sidelined for several years, Eilersen is ready to offer a luxury safari chair.

The Safari chair is intended to be a luxury self-assembly kit, as each part has a function. The frame consists of eight parts, which must be screwed together with eight Unbrako screws while the back, seat and armrests are mounted. The chair is assembled on delivery.
