One of the most iconic designs in furniture, the Butterfly Chair was originally designed in 1938 by architects Jorge Ferrari-Hardoy, Juan Kurchan and Antonio Bonet. Taking inspiration from the late 19th century ‘La Tripolina’ model, the design applies Italian leather and wood in a foldable chair style. Taking the essential form of the chair, Lars Kjerstadius, founder of Cuero Design, elevated the initial design with a larger seat and a focus on comfort.
An excellent alternative to the Leather Butterfly Chair, the Canvas Mariposa offers breathability with a 100% cotton cover.
Inspired by the classic Argentinian 'Butterfly Chair' design, Lars Kjerstadius went on to develop his own design of the product. After spending years perfecting and improving the comfort and style of the chair, Lars crafted the ultimate modern lounge chair, beautifully adapted for the 21st Century.
Cuero, a family run business (by Lars's son and partner), has now launched the chair along with a range of other luxury leather and sheepskin furniture and accessories, combining the powerful force of nature and design.
