Handcrafted in Argentina by 

The Palermo Leather Workshop 

The Butterfly Chair is authentically Argentine: its inventive design and remarkable craftsmanship are iconic. Created in 1938 by Argentine architects, the 'BKF' style became widely known throughout the United States and Europe as a symbol of modern design.

Our copper chair is unlike any other. Producing such an extraordinarily brilliant and high quality finish in copper required almost a year of development to perfect. We think the effort was well worth it - this is the chair we can't wait to have in our own homes. 

Masterfully crafted by hand, the covers are made of beautiful speckled white cowhide.  Also available in cognac leather.
