1938 Leather Butterfly Chair $nzd 513 year of the butterfly. Inspired by the original "198 Hardoy Chair" (aka "Butterfly") designed in 1938. Who knew? It had a natural leather hide sling and not the ubiquitous fabrics on collapsible hairpin frames. Our butterfly is the monarch, ruling again in iconic style. Top-grain, full-aniline, vegetable-tanned leather hides hand-stitched in quadrants and hand-laced at the edges read pure vintage with a warm, natural saddle glow.
