Trappeur Chair by Samare
by sabine7 / July 1, 2010


Samare's new collection is based on the legacy of the Canadian interior or Pays d'en haut where much of the nation-building logging and fur trade once took place. This Montreal-based studio shows how contemporary design can borrow from tradition.

Trappeur Chair and Stool in beaver

Local materials were key to the survival of the trappers and traders. The Trappeur Chair is the reinterpretation of an old legend from the days of the fur trade: apparently lying on a fur would re-energize the trappers after long days in the woods.

The Trappeur chair and stool are made up of a steel framework with back and seat in beaver or sheepskin. Draped over the chair is the Surface Fleche, a blanket woven with the design traditionally used for belts for the trappers.
