The Carl Hansen Safari Chair, was inspired by a British officer's chair which designer Kaare Klint had seen in a travel guide for Africa. This is Klint's most successful design with Carl Hansen having sold more than 100,000 pieces since it was first made in 1933. Lightweight yet functional, the Safari Chair has been re-introduced and consists of 11 components, each of which can be simply detached and assembled without the aid of tools. This 'knock down' construction and absence of adhesive means the chair adapts to those seated. The tiltable backrest pivots to suit a range of lounging positions.

Klint's interest in classical furniture art is visible via the simplified forms and choice of high quality materials, in particular the belted and leg and back straps which holds the form together when assembled.

Safari is available in a range of options including an oiled ash or smoked ash frame. The seat, seat cushion and back rest can be selected in a blue, green, brown and nature coloured canvas with leather arm straps in a complementary hue. Alternatively, a leather seat and back can be purchased from four hues in Thor leather.

Fabric Description :
Canvas - 90% New Wool and 10% nylon. Durable with a semi-plain wave, its perfect for both domestic and contract use.
Thor Leather- This semi-aniline leather has a natural grain and its occasional slight scars and markings add to its individuality. Coated with a protective layer to increase practicality and withstand stains and fading, this leather will wear slightly over time adding to its appearance.

I just wanted to express my thanks again for your great customer service. I ordered my items less than 24 hours ago and I’ve amended my order- yet I still have my order here with me now. You went out of your way to deliver my order and I’m very grateful. I wish more places had people like you :-)

I couldn't be happier with the custom made sofa bought through the online store. It is perfect and made all the more enjoyable by buying it through the guys at utility. Ben and Paul who delivered the sofa were amazing, kind and really helpful in a difficult situation (of course the lift broke when I was getting something delivered). Would highly recommend!

Just wanted to message and say that I'm a big fan of the Utility Stores and the types of products you guys sell. I work close by to the Manchester store at University Green, so I'm popping in a fair bit generally for cards, gifts, etc. I just nipped in again this afternoon about one product I'd bought earlier and the staff were super helpful and attentive. It made it really easy, and I was in and out in no time.

Just wanted to drop you guys a quick note to say how happy I am with the service I have had. Especially the two guys who delivered/carried into an awkward space/built/then took away the packaging, not to mention then gave me a lift into town. Thank you. Plus the sofa looks amazing. I will definitely be using you guys more in the future and will highly recommend you to anyone who will listen.
