Iconic Butterfly Cowhide Chair

So many new items are arriving daily!! This Iconic Butterfly Cowhide Chair is so fun! An icon of Latin American modernism butterfly chairs are one of the most copied designs of the 20th century.
Some furniture designs become so ubiquitous that their creators get relegated to the footnotes. Such is the case of the Butterfly chair, originally called the BKF or Hardoy chair after the trio of Le Corbusier alums—Grupo Austral’s Antonio Bonet, Juan Kurchan, and Jorge Ferrari Hardoy—who created it in Buenos Aires in 1938.
