Product details

For tales of knights and Lear nonsense, our magical Surin storyteller's chair is a fabled Thai design. Superbly hand carved from warm, sun-blessed monkey pod wood, the generously proportioned chair follows beautiful bergere curves, and its intriguing sculptural motifs could just as easily be from a galactic star ship or King Arthur's court. All it awaits is your storyteller's imagination – we know of one customer who insists that everyone who sits in hers tells a story! Made exclusively for Myakka by a long-standing supplier from Chaing Mai, northern Thailand, the chair is full of original character and quality. Each unique one that's made takes many hours for a carver to complete.

Each Surin product is produced using an ethical approach to trading by supporting small, family run manufacturers and artisans in Thailand on a fair trade basis. Due to the nature of the product, the colour, grain and detail of the wood will vary adding to the unique charm. For more information please click on the Monkey Pod wood link below.

100% Monkey Pod wood with a hand waxed finish.

Fair trade furniture imported directly from Thailand.

This product is delivered fully assembled

Care

As this Surin Storyteller's Chair is hand waxed, we would recommend the use of coasters and mats to protect the wood from blooms caused by hot or wet items. In case of colour transfer, please also take care not to sit the product directly on light coloured carpet. We recommend this item for interior use only and would advise to avoid direct sunlight which may cause the solid wood to develop cracks.

Delivery & Returns

Regardless of the number of items you request, you only pay one fair delivery charge per order. Standard delivery is £4.95, larger pieces displaying a lorry symbol are priced in the grid.

Delivery+ denotes a pre-booked delivery, usually within 14 days, with your items being carried into the room of your choice and all packaging removed. UK Highland and Island deliveries or outlying areas are calculated by postcode as shown.

disappointing
, Antrim | 19 Jul 2017
I have looked forward to getting this chair for a long timer. In the catalogue it looked like a finely carved chair with a delicate feel to it. However, the reality was a chunky, heavy chair which looked awful indoors. Si it is now a really expensive garden seat. Couldn't even return it as you are mean to use the box it came in. Impossible as you have to hack your way into these boxes to get at the product. Very disappointed indeed.

A beautiful piece of furniture built to last
| 02 Jun 2016
This looks fantastic in the sun lounge. Everyone makes a bee line for it, then I insist whoever has the chair tells a story. So far, all have done so. The chair must be inspirational. Have added some lovely cushions, maybe Myakka could produce made to measure cushions as I had to be creative with my cushions but love the effect created.

Storys to write!
| 24 Jun 2015
Firtly I should make comment on delivery My first date was not suitable and I had to chase new date several times over nxt week with little response till Myakka intervened Staff however were pleasant and courteous. Secondly, I always liked the chair and saved for a long time to get enough money to buy it When I gave it a closer look it was bigger than it appeared or I would have preferred So it was needful to move furniture and change my room in the hope it would fit When the chair did come there is actually even move bulk than I thought ... it looked in the book as tho the arms curled in to a smaller seat but in fact its quite up and down Also the chair has more of a redness than the brown of the picture, which in fairness matches quite well with my other wooden furniture It must also be said its not the most comfy of chairs and seems a shame to cover the wood with cushioning, all of which may prove usful to prospective buyers! Thus said I love the chair, its solid, well made and unique, and would recommend it to others and intend to enjoy it myself! Storys to write and dragons to fight!??

Great Chair
, Cornwall | 30 Jul 2014
It's a great chair just what I was hoping for! I was delighted by the product and your company service - a phone call and email to say that product had arrived in depot and awaiting delivery.However, I thought the delivery service was rather slow especially since there was a carriage charge. After a week of no communication I had to chase up the item and as it was for a leaving present had to give a time ultimatum. The chair i was finally delivered after nearly 2 weeks from the depot!

A note from the team

Many thanks for taking the time to write a review. It’s great to hear that the item has arrived as expected and that you are pleased with your new purchase. We are sorry that the delivery time was a little longer than expected. We work hard with our couriers to ensure that we make deliveries of our large and heavy furniture, requiring a Delivery+ service, within 10-14 days.Through our sale period we do advise this time frame can be extended slightly to account for high volumes going through our warehouse.

A magnificent chair
| 10 Jun 2014
I fell in love with the Surin storyteller's chair when I saw it in a Myakka catalogue which came with another catalogue which I normally receive. I had never seen Myakka furniture before, but was convinced by the photograph in the catalogue that this was just what was needed for a certain space in our home. I had only once ordered through the internet previously. It would be an understatement to say that I was not disappointed when the chair arrived and it fitted perfectly into the space and is now the feature of the room. In fact, it absolutely makes it. Three friends have come in since and each said:- 'I love that chair.' It is a superb design, being a mixture of delicacy and sturdiness. The wood is a most beautiful colour and it is marvellous to the touch. I love the design as a whole, the depth and unusual length of the chair. Thank you so much. Oh - and the service was also fantastic. In fact, as the footballers say :- 'I'm over the moon with it!' Thank you.

Beautiful piece of furniture
| 06 May 2014
I have looked at this for months in the catalogue. Eventually I took the plunge and bought it. The service was excellent, the gentlemen delivering it brought it in and unpacked it, taking the packaging away as promised, and couldn't have been more helpful. The seat itself is beautiful, slightly larger than I have anticipated, but all the better for that. It is very well constructed, and the finish is a warm, deep colour. All who have seen it have admired it. I'm sure this will become a family heirloom.

Storyteller's chair

This is a really lovely chair, bought for my daughter's 21st birthday, as a 'lifetime companion piece'. She loves it. Only thing is, check how long delivery will be, as, since these are made individually, there can be quite a lead time on delivery - I decided it was worth the wait, and am very pleased I did, but it would be a problem if you were time critical.
