Butterfly Inspired by the Hardoy Chair

year of the butterfly. Inspired by the original “198 Hardoy Chair” (aka “Butterfly”) designed in 1938. Who knew? It had a natural leather hide sling and not the ubiquitous fabrics on collapsible hairpin frames. Our butterfly is the monarch, ruling again in iconic style. Top-grain, full-aniline, vegetable-tanned leather hides hand-stitched in quadrants and hand-laced at the edges read pure vintage with a warm, natural saddle glow. Rich grain and inherent markings enhance the natural beauty and character of the hide, left un-dyed and protected with a water-based lacquer. Displayed in all its glory on a substantial tubular iron frame antiqued zinc (it doesn’t fold…it’s here to stay). Super easy assembly, no hardware required. We like four in a conversation circle. Iconic “Butterfly” design Tubular iron frame with antiqued zinc finish; water-based clear matte powdercoat Seat is top-grain, full-aniline leather protected with water-based lacquer Each leather panel will have natural variations in color and markings; each chair is unique Hand-stitched hides; hand-laced leather edging Minimal assembly; no hardware required Made in India (via 1938 leather butterfly chair in chairs | CB2)
