Safari or better known as Campaign furniture is one design trend you definitely want to get your hands on. Topolansky shares some insight into this trend and introduces their latest collections to entice the senses.
Safari furniture was originally made to be packed up for travel and for military campaigns. In fact, it was first designed to be ‘folded up’ and carried long distances that had been a feature of travelling armies over many centuries.
Today the trend continues and showcases some key elements that are most appealing. You can easily recognise Safari / Campaign furniture by its solid brass corners and leather strapwork which give it a distinct “campaign look”.
Durable, quality materials and high attention to detail; only the best artisans could make this uniquely styled furniture. Originally made from mahogany or teak, campaign furniture is now popping up in vibrant colours such as bright orange, deep ocean blue and even fuchsia.
Topolansky boasts broad experience in this range and has supplied many Safari & Luxury Lodges throughout Africa and many other parts of the world.
Let’s take a look at some of our favourite items from Topolansky’s current Safari Collection:
