Haaaappy Friday peeps! Can’t wait for the weekend – we’re heading back to Honkers this afternoon for a couple of days of much needed relaxation. What are you folks up to??
So today I thought I’d take a look at the absolutely-and-insanely-bonkers-gorgeous Butterfly chair, also known as the BKF chair. Can you tell I’m a fan?!
Designed in Buenos Aires in 1938 by the Grupo Austral, it is formed of a solid folding frame and a fabric/leather/cowhide/whathaveyou seat attached to the frame’s four corners.
From the first time I set eyes on this beaut I have been totally obsessed – not surprising really as I’ve been having a long run love affair with Argentina since travelling in Latin America years ago.
I think my fave application of the piece is in an outdoors setting, especially combined with a firepit or outdoors fireplace (err, or more randomly Moroccan lanterns, you know me…):
But it’s also pretty increds in a safari / glamping kinda situation:
And here are a few interior piccies also – sorry, seem to have got a smidge over excited about it…
Double-swoon – love it here on the RHS with the dark wood floor and trad chandie:
Can’t go wrong pairing it with a cowhide rug:
It seems to very often be draped with a sheepskin rug/throw, which looks pretty fabulous also:
Slightly obsessing over this sleek scheme on the RHS here:
