Many South Africans will have fond memories of the Globe Chair, which is a real classic from our shores. These simple solid wooden chairs were manufactured in Durban from the early 1920’s until the 1940’s, and they’ve been a kitchen classic ever since.

Now furniture designer Haldane Martin is revisiting the Globe Chair,  getting it back into production – this time in a range of contemporary colours.


Haldane Martin’s Globe Chair will be launched at Rooms on View, opening in Joburg today.
