A Pair of Safari Model Leather and Mahogany Armchairs, by John Tabraham for Kallenbach's
The price is for the pair.
Two authentic John Tabraham gentleman's club chairs, fully restored with new full grain leather and the sapele mahogany wood stripped and newly sealed.
The original chairs came with bonded leather, which we replaced with the thickest (3,2 mm) veg-dyed leather available in South Africa, from one of the oldest tanneries, Leather from Heart, in Pietermaritzburg. The thickness of the suspended leather was important, since thinner leather would stretch.
Veg-tanned leather is the ancient art of tanning leather with vegetable based tanning agents, such as bark extracts and oils. This natural method creates an incredibly strong material that develops its own unique patina with age, making such leather perfect for creating pieces that last. The leather has a strong organic feel.
John Tabraham is widely regarded as South Africa's top mid-century modern furniture designer.
Dimensions: 78 (d) x 77 (w) x 74 (h) and 38 cm seat height
