Great reasons to buy the Cuero Hemp Canvas Butterfly Chair

  • Hemp is one of the oldest cultivated crops and it's fibre positive qualities are recognised world wide for thousands of years. 
  • Hemp is extremely good for the environment and has been known to be used for food, fiber and fuel.
  • Given its natural properties, hemp is surprisingly versatile: it feels cooler in summer yet you´ll stay warm in winter. Air which is trapped in the fibers is warmed by the body, making the canvas butterfly chair a truly comfortable four-season furniture.

The story of the iconic Butterfly 'Mariposa' Chair

The Butterfly Chair is one of the most recognised chairs in design history, originally designed in 1938 for an apartment building in Buenos Aires by architects Jorge Ferrari-Hardoy, Juan Kurchan and Antonio Bonet, this chair is a landmark of iconic design. The designers were inspired by a folding chair called Tripolina that was being used by the military. They admired the simplicity and portability of the Tripolina and went about creating the Butterfly Chair in its likeness. You can find this iconic chair in the lobbies of five-star hotels, on the front cover of luxury design publications and in the homes of the most stylish. 

The Cuero Hemp Canvas Butterfly chair is defined by a large sling that hangs from the highest points of it's tubular frame. This creates a cocooned space when you are seated, the air trapped in the fibres is then warmed by the body. 

The Canvas Butterfly Chair is available in 3 natural colour tones - white, black, and crude nature. This versatile modern lounge chair has been created with superior comfort in mind whilst valuing the importance of the environment.

I just wanted to express my thanks again for your great customer service. I ordered my items less than 24 hours ago and I’ve amended my order- yet I still have my order here with me now. You went out of your way to deliver my order and I’m very grateful. I wish more places had people like you :-)

I couldn't be happier with the custom made sofa bought through the online store. It is perfect and made all the more enjoyable by buying it through the guys at utility. Ben and Paul who delivered the sofa were amazing, kind and really helpful in a difficult situation (of course the lift broke when I was getting something delivered). Would highly recommend!

Just wanted to message and say that I'm a big fan of the Utility Stores and the types of products you guys sell. I work close by to the Manchester store at University Green, so I'm popping in a fair bit generally for cards, gifts, etc. I just nipped in again this afternoon about one product I'd bought earlier and the staff were super helpful and attentive. It made it really easy, and I was in and out in no time.

Just wanted to drop you guys a quick note to say how happy I am with the service I have had. Especially the two guys who delivered/carried into an awkward space/built/then took away the packaging, not to mention then gave me a lift into town. Thank you. Plus the sofa looks amazing. I will definitely be using you guys more in the future and will highly recommend you to anyone who will listen.
