Palermo Chair - Black & Natural

Free U.S. Shipping & Easy Returns

Dreamed up in 1938 by Argentine architects, the butterfly chair is an icon of modern design. Meticulously handcrafted from buttery smooth, vegetable-tanned saddle leather, this heirloom-quality piece ages beautifully – much like a fine wine.

We partnered with a small leather workshop in Buenos Aires to bring this timeless design back to life. To create these chairs, they use only the highest-quality leather from local polo saddleries. Each one takes three days to complete, all made under fair trade standards.

Also available in cognac leather and grey cowhide.

NOTE: Due to the size of this item, returns for a refund require a $65 total fee. Returns for store credit are always free.

Beautiful, super comfortable.

It is manufactured in a nice fashion. Leather looks great. Very well-made. Will buy another one, and can only suggest you get it if you are thinking about it. Customer service is quick and very helpful.

Image does not resemble leather

I understand how the leather will weather, but the image that you show should probably resemble the leather the Client is going to get or you could distress it to get it to that color.

We truly appreciate customers like you that take the time to share your experience with our brand and products - we’re still growing and learning and want to deliver the best experience all around. We’ve also shared your feedback with our Production team, but please know that this chair is made from carefully selected hides which are vegetable tanned and will just get more beautiful as they age. Thank you again for your continued support. Best, - The Citizenry Team
