Kipling Teak Root Armchair – Storytellers’ Chair.
A stunning high back chair that has been handcrafted from pieces of teak root and which makes the perfect storytellers’ chair
If you are looking for an armchair that is completely at home with nature, which can be used indoors or outdoors and which is individual and unique, then the Kipling Teak Root Armchair is for you.
Each one of these beautifully natural pieces of furniture is made from sections of a genuinely reclaimed teak root, which have been expertly cut and shaped by skilled craftspeople local to the overseas forests where the teak trees grow. Because every tree root is different, so every Kipling Teak Root Armchair is different, so you can enjoy your very own individual piece of outdoor furniture.
The chair makes a fun and stunning centrepiece for any home or outdoor area, but would also make a lovely storytellers’ chair or teachers’ chair, evoking as it does images of fairytales and wizards, elves and witches, jungle creatures and lords and ladies of imaginary kingdoms.
Beauty and comfort
Formed from sections of the tree root, the high backrest looks stunning and is slightly angled for comfort. Meanwhile the armrests and wide, spacious seat make the chair comfortable to sit on – and if you want to add that bit of luxury and colour, you can also use it with cushions.
Enjoy the qualities of reclaimed teak
Solid, sturdy and chunky, the Kipling Teak Root Armchair offers all the benefits of teak, which is naturally high in oils and has a dense grain, making it weather resistant and split resistant. The teak root looks natural, but has been treated and sealed with a light resin, so whether used indoors or out in the garden, this durable seat will stay looking beautiful for years to come with little or no maintenance. However, to prolong its life further, why not consider using one of Rattan and Teak’s teak care products?
