The Campaign Chair, also known as the Safari or Roorkee chair, was a mainstay of the British military for decades starting in the late 1800s. Originating at the British headquarters of the Indian Army Corps of Engineers in Roorkee, India, it was designed to be mobile, durable and practical. Because the chair has no fixed joinery, the legs and rails move, enabling it to adapt to uneven ground. The chair’s leather components tighten the legs towards one another as weight is applied to it. The act of sitting in it reinforces the structure of the chair.
In a few minutes, this chair can be assembled or broken down. It stores compactly in its signature waxed canvas bag. Portable and functional, the MillmontCampaign Chair adds unique style to outdoor events. Handmade of select walnut wood and premium leather, the chair is beautiful enough to be used indoors year-round.
