San Rafael Safari Chair

Free U.S. Shipping & Easy 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.

Wanted to love this chair

We were SO excited about these chairs. We had a few different places that we could put them in for different uses and they were so beautiful but SO u comfortable - even as a “put on shoes chair” instead of a “hang out and watch TV chair” they were completely unacceptable. As someone who is willing to sacrifice comfort for aesthetic, I was truly baffled as to how anyone could keep these in their home. The only use I could imagine them being appropriate for is in a retail store where the store wants to appear to offer a chair, but they really don’t want you staying long or getting comfortable in that chair!

The Citizenry

Hi Blaine, 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 aesthetic as much as anyone else, we would never sacrifice form for function. So we’re sending your note along to our Production Team to triple check this latest batch of chairs to ensure they meet our high standards for both. Again, we’re sorry that this was your experience with us this go around. We’d love to prove our commitment to quality, coziness, and (yes!) aesthetics down the road. And we truly hope we’re given the chance to do just that. Sincerely, The Citizenry Team

This chair is right next to our fireplace in our living room and you can see it as soon as you walk in the door to our house. It’s incredibly comfortable and stylish. I would definitely recommend!

Beautiful Chair

It’s exactly as pictured—a very lightweight, airy-looking, elegant chair. The leather is a gorgeous color and it blends the classic safari chair with modern aesthetics perfectly

Lovely statement piece

This is a well made chair. Was a bit surprised that I had to stretch the leather seat myself but it was easy to accomplish. Lovey statement piece! Waiting for the foot rest!

Love love love

I love its design. Just perfect! It took two person to snap the leather into the buttons. Once it is on, it is secured. The leather is in great quality. It is thick, sturdy, and with that beautiful leather sheen!!!

Nice design

Design is nice; however leather is a bit too long so back of legs rest on front bar and causes pain. Will try to shorten leather. Also, holes do not line up, so unable to secure front edge of leather to front bar.
