1938 tobacco leather butterfly chair


We are sorry, this product is currently not available.

"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 read pure vintage in soft black, hand-stitched in quadrants and hand-laced at the edges. Rich grain and inherent markings enhance the natural beauty and character of the hide, 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 light 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 markings; each chair is unique -Hand-stitched hides; hand-laced leather edging -Supports up to 325 lbs -Minimal assembly; no hardware required -Made in India"
