Palermo Tripolina Chair

natural
Easy 30 Day Returns

One cannot easily claim "heirloom quality," but we use the term to describe our handcrafted chair - without reservation.  

Our Palermo Tripolina Chair's cover is made of thick 100% Argentinian vegetable-tanned polo saddle leather that, like a fine wine, ages beautifully. All hand-dyed and stitched in a small workshop in Buenos Aires. The supporting frame is hand-carved from high quality guindo wood, a lightweight but incredibly durable timber, and assembled with iron hardware. Its compactness when folded makes it easy to take along on any adventure, without suffering style or comfort.

Originally designed in 1855 by a British engineer, the ‘Tripolina’ style became widely known in Europe as an officer’s chair used on military campaigns. But it also grew in popularity with safari hunters, explorers, and adventurers worldwide. 

Notable for its elegant form and versatile function, this chair serves as a stylish addition to any living space or companion on your next journey.

NOTE: Due to the size of this item, returns for a refund require a $65 total fee. Returns for store credit are always free.

Beautifully designed and incredibly comfortable; it makes for the most perfect reading chair. Great addition to my studio! It also arrived earlier than expected, which was a wonderful surprise.

High quality beautiful chair

We purchased two of these chairs for our three season cottage in Maine. They are the perfect size for our small “camp”, move easily to view the lake, and provide the contemporary rustic look that we wanted. I highly recommend these chairs!

Gorgeous!

This chair definitely turned out to be as beautiful as the pictures! I was able to figure out how to put it together pretty quickly (no tools needed!) and it is comfortable too. I got the foot stool as well. It does make a slightly creaky noise if you move around a lot, but otherwise is a stunning piece!
