Description

Bengt Ruda has crafted some of Sweden's finest furniture – this stunning 'Cikada' Safari Chair is no exception. Featuring a pared back design with a linear frame, it incorporates generous pieces of grained beech. We love the chair's thoughtful and refined design – maximising the potential of each material.

The design of the safari chairs was based on a traditional English chair used by hunters in Africa and and Asia. Made of beech and a slung canvas seat with hide leather arm rests, this comfortable lounge chair will make a statement in any contemporary space.
