"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"
