Vintage Safari chairs have been popping up in spaces of those with an edge on design. The popular Norell & Klint designs took inspiration from the Campaign furniture that had resurged in the 1800s for use by British armies. Without scouring ebay and vintage stores, these chairs are quite difficult to come by today. We were able to find a few manufacturers with safari chair & campaign furniture-inspired pieces that are currently in production

This is POD’s official campaign for campaign chairs! We love them and want to see more of them!
