San Rafael Safari Chair

Easy 30 Day Returns

A modern take on the classic safari chair. Luxuriously thick leather, vegetable-tanned and sun-dried (no chemicals here!) to enrich its warm caramel hue. Paired with an all-natural wood base and slingback style, this chair has major lounge appeal.

Style as a duo with the San Rafael Stool to make the ultimate “kick-back-and-relax” statement.

Handcrafted by an award-winning workshop in Mexico City, each chair takes 7 days to complete. All made start-to-finish in a fair trade environment.

Every chair is one-of-a-kind. Leather tones will vary and darken over time. We only use the highest quality, ethically-sourced hides – expect slight knicks and markings that add a bit of character.

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

Great chair

I bought 2 of these and the shipping was fast and they were well packed without excessive materials :) assembly is super easy and the chairs look beautiful. They are pretty comfortable and I assume overtime, as the leather wears in, they will be even more so. Very cozy if you put your feet up on the coffee table so I see why they make a matching ottoman ;p The only negative for me is that the metal studs holding the seat bottom on don’t have some kind of “nut” to lock the two pieces securely inplace. The middle studd on both chairs keeps detaching from the leather. Not a big deal since the other 3 plus the weight of a person are enough to be sturdy but just a bit annoying. I hope in the future there are replacement leather slings in different colors so you can swap them out if you want :)

Simple elegance

Although I love the look of this chair, it is a bit uncomfortable right behind your knees. At first I was a bit disappointed because the color was so much darker than any of the pictures (more of a dark cognac) but it's still a great looking chair. I'm going to pair it with a Lawu stump stool as soon as they're back in stock to really make it pop.

Hi Paula, Thank you for your honest feedback — we’re so sorry to hear that you didn’t find this chair as comfy as you’d hoped! While we appreciate aesthetics as much as anyone else, we would never sacrifice form for function. So we’re sending your note along to our Production Team to check this latest batch of chairs to ensure they meet our high standards for both. I am glad to hear that you have been in contact with our Client Experience team regarding the construction of the chair, hopefully we were able to help make this beauty more comfortable with some minor adjustments. Thank you again for your feedback. Hopefully we’re able to prove our commitment to quality, excellence, and craftsmanship to you down the road! Sincerely, The Citizenry Team

Accurate as photographed

The picture is accurate. I agree with other comments that the chair under bar under the legs is not comfortable. This is not a chair for a guest to watch a film in, if you want them to stay. HOWEVER, the ottoman alleviates the pressure point on the chair. Every thing arrived slightly spotty or stained, but given its a very soft, it’s going to get worn. I’d take a photo if that was an option (if it is, I cannot find it). Also, the ottoman should match the chair’s wood styling. The ottoman has rounded ends. The chair’s wood is squared. Customer service on a minor delivery delay was excellent.
