Butterfly chairs quickly evolved into a modern design classic soon after they were first conceived.

The versatility of the butterfly chair consists in the fact that it looks good in just about every room. Use it in the living room around the coffee table, in the bedroom, in your reading nook, even at the dining room table. You can also take the chair outside, on the balcony, on the terrace or on the deck. It’s very comfortable and the leather version is also more resilient. What also makes these versatile chairs wonderful is the fact that they take little floor space and are just as comfortable as a robust armchair, if not even more.
