Forgetting a Leather Butterfly Chair in your design collection is the same.
We Perfected The Butterfly Chair
My father always had a problem with the Butterfly Chair.
It was uncomfortable to sit in, and he thought that the edges were too pointy. They broke the harmony of a perfectly decorated room. So, he embarked on a design Odyssey that took more than 15 years. The result was this beautiful lounge chair that you see here.
This version is considered by many to be the most beautiful butterfly chair in the world. And it is also one of the most comfortable design chairs.
Today, my wife and I are still producing the same chairs that my father perfected. We make them in Sweden with the best leather there is on the market. Our hope is that you and your loved ones will be able to enjoy it for several generations.
Crafted To Perfection
The very best Italian leather is combined with Swedish steel to create state of the art interior decoration.
The Butterfly Chair is made deep in the Swedish forests with a clear focus on quality and sustainability. Modern machines are used to cut and bend our steel with robotic precision while a human touch is required to carefully select the best leather. The environment will thank you for using this butterfly chair, as it is made of vegetable tanned leather and shipped in a flat package. It’s clear that Cuero Design is a place where nature meets art.
4 mm thick leather guarantees that your chair will maintain its shape forever.
In the beginning, my father used to make the chairs with 3 mm leather. It was standard practice and why shouldn’t he do the same?
Only he quickly realised that after using the chair for a few months, the leather started to stretch. It made the whole chair sink down and it lost its beautiful shape. It also became more uncomfortable to sit in.
He was not proud of his chair at that point and he wanted something that you can pass on for generations.
In his search for a tougher chair, he came to the conclusion that he needed to go up one millimeter in leather thickness. This was a very tough decision for him to make because he knew it would increase the final price of the chair a lot.
You see, the cost of producing leather is by weight. The heavier the leather, the more tannins you need to make it. And one millimeter may not sound much but between 3 mm and 4 mm, there is a 33% increase in production cost!
Standing there on the crossroad, he decided to take the path of amazing quality instead of letting you think that you were saving money by buying a chair that will turn out to be no good after just a few years.
That’s the only reason why this chair is more expensive than other butterfly chairs. Unlike many other famous design companies, we do not charge extra for our brand name. We only charge for the great quality materials that we use.
