The butterfly chair is an absolute design classic. The iconic 1930s design is largely attributed to Jorge Ferrari Hardoy, which is why it's sometimes also known as the Hardoy chair. By the 1940s, the butterfly chair was considered one of the “best efforts of modern chair design” by the director of design at New York's Museum of Modern Art. Its popularity soared.
With its folding frame, the butterfly chair is brilliantly versatile. But the butterfly chair from ROOMOX has an advantage! Unlike other models, this chair's folding mechanism is subtle; the design maintains its sleek, high-end appearance thanks to a clever tubular frame. As well as looking great, the metal tubes are quick and easy to assemble and dismantle.
The leather for the ROOMOX butterfly chair's sling is sourced from Brazil. This luxurious high-grade Brazilian leather is available in three classic colours: grey, brown or black, so whether you prefer a warm tone or a neutral one, there's a shade to suit your own interior. Simply slide the cover's four rounded corners onto the frame and you're ready to relax in style. The frame also features protective rubber feet, preventing scratches and scrapes to your chair as well as your floors.
Its foldability makes the butterfly chair hugely versatile. When you fancy a change of scene, simply fold it up and move it where you want to go – the bedroom, lounge, conservatory or even out on to the balcony or terrace. When you need a bit of extra room, simply fold the armchair up and store it away for later.
For even more versatility or to add a splash of colour to your home or garden, the butterfly chair is also available with a waterproof nylon seat in a huge range of colours, from vibrant orange or turquoise to a more muted grey or beige. Choose the nylon butterfly chair with a glossy stainless steel frame or a cool black powder-coated frame.
