Skovshoved Møbelfabrik’s OGK safari chair shares the same simple aesthetics as the OGK daybed, both designed in the 1960s by Ole Gjerløv-Knudsen. The convenient chair comes in a linen bag with a shoulder strap and it’s fast and easy to assemble – no screws or tools are needed. The frame is made of soaped beech and the cover is natural linen. The twisted sisal ropes and long back legs are an essential part of the structure and double as beautiful details. The OGK safari chair is perfect for lounging in any space – living room, bedroom, terrace and outdoors.

”First time shopping with Finnish Design Shop and I had a real easy, smooth experience. I had one return item and that was handled effortlessly.”
”Both my purchases were excellent quality, priced at a very reasonable level and delivered in a matter of days despite me being the other side of the World. There is simply no way to describe that kind of a Company except amazingly good.”
”I ordered a HAY side table that was on back order everywhere else. It was a few hundred crowns more at Finnish Design Shop, but shipped the next day and was delivered to my door two days later, which I think was worth the extra cost. It came well-packaged, protected and the item is in perfect condition. I’m happy and would shop here again.”
