Rhoorkie Empire Leather Campaign Chair

Named for the town in India that made it, "The Rhoorkie" was a popular choice for high-ranking British officers who enjoyed a lifestyle "under canvas" that allowed the transportation of luxuriously appointed furnishings, designed to travel well and serve their owners in the style to which they were accustomed.  Despite their substantial and stylish appearance, the pieces were cleverly designed to quickly break down and re-assemble without the use of nails or tools, in time for afternoon tea or an evening "encamp".  The solid functionality of these clever pieces lends itself well to modern interiors.  Classic proportions and elegant, distressed finishes add a lived-in, comfortable statement of character that will express the owner's reference to history and confidence in good style.  Slightly flexible, the chair is designed to sit well, even on uneven ground.  The original would have been made with teak wood, which is now endangered.  This one is handmade using hardwood maple with a rich patina finish and brass hardware.  Cushions are black suede hide trimmed with natural leather piping.
