Butterfly Chair  furniture design

Summer 2015,
The Butterfly Chair, a labor of love was dreamed up as I explored the beautiful architecture, design, and yes, chairs, so many chairs, of Scandinavia. This chair has a frame inspired by the symmetrical wings of a butterfly. The upholstery and colors were chosen from an arsenal of Scandinavian textiles, with inspiration form Svenskt Tenn and Marimekko. The seat features a cantilevered base that allows for a breathtaking flex when you lean into it. The frame is composed of exposed mortise and tenon joints with interior dowel joinery.
