The Oliver Twist Of Your Design Collection

You are the owner of a book shop. A customer comes in and asks you for Oliver Twist. You suddenly realize that you have forgotten to include it in your collection. How can a book shop not offer a classical masterpiece?

Forgetting a Leather Butterfly Chair in your design collection is the same.

We Perfected The Butterfly Chair

My father always had a problem with the Butterfly Chair.

It was uncomfortable to sit in, and he thought that the edges were too pointy. They broke the harmony of a perfectly decorated room. So, he embarked on a design Odyssey that took more than 15 years. The result was this beautiful lounge chair that you see here.

This version is considered by many to be the most beautiful butterfly chair in the world. And it is also one of the most comfortable design chairs.

Today, my wife and I are still producing the same chairs that my father perfected. We make them in Sweden with the best leather there is on the market. Our hope is that you and your loved ones will be able to enjoy it for several generations.

Our Customers Say It’s The Best Butterfly Chair In The World

Our clients are willing to pay a little extra to get the very best comfort and quality. They don’t care if they can save money on a chair that might break or be uncomfortable to sit in. So, naturally, they buy what they think is the best.

The reason we know this is because we have very good relationships with our clients.

We always ask our customers why they choose to buy our chair and not one of the countless other cheap versions in the market. The answer is always the same:

They have been looking for a butterfly chair for a long time, performing both extensive online research and visiting shops to compare physical chairs with each other.

After their careful research, our customers have come to the conclusion that this is the best butterfly chair in the world.

“I received my pampa Mariposa chair in crude nature finish and i have only one word to describe it…. WHOAH !!!! It is as beautiful as the pictures of the website, the quality and the thickness of the leather is impressive and it is sooooo cumfortable. Regarding its quality, it is, by far, the best quality for money deal of all the market ! Thank you so much for being one of the few companies (and there are less and less) which propose a really high range product at an affordable level of price. You are the proof that some companies still believe that their goal is to create good products, made for lasting….and not only good marketing campaigns (as so many others do !)”

Crafted To Perfection 

The very best Italian leather is combined with Swedish steel to create state of the art interior decoration.

The Butterfly Chair is made deep in the Swedish forests with a clear focus on quality and sustainability. Modern machines are used to cut and bend our steel with robotic precision while a human touch is required to carefully select the best leather. The environment will thank you for using this butterfly chair, as it is made of vegetable tanned leather and shipped in a flat package. It’s clear that Cuero Design is a place where nature meets art.

4 mm thick leather guarantees that your chair will maintain its shape forever.

In the beginning, my father used to make the chairs with 3 mm leather. It was standard practice and why shouldn’t he do the same?

Only he quickly realised that after using the chair for a few months, the leather started to stretch. It made the whole chair sink down and it lost its beautiful shape. It also became more uncomfortable to sit in.

He was not proud of his chair at that point and he wanted something that you can pass on for generations.

In his search for a tougher chair, he came to the conclusion that he needed to go up one millimeter in leather thickness. This was a very tough decision for him to make because he knew it would increase the final price of the chair a lot.

You see, the cost of producing leather is by weight. The heavier the leather, the more tannins you need to make it. And one millimeter may not sound much but between 3 mm and 4 mm, there is a 33% increase in production cost!

Standing there on the crossroad, he decided to take the path of amazing quality instead of letting you think that you were saving money by buying a chair that will turn out to be no good after just a few years.

That’s the only reason why this chair is more expensive than other butterfly chairs. Unlike many other famous design companies, we do not charge extra for our brand name. We only charge for the great quality materials that we use.

  1. Didi Sutisna, Singapore

    We received the butterfly chair – in Singapore – nicely packed and pretty fast. During the delivery process we were kept updated and the Cuero team was always available for our questions. And we can truly say that we are happy with it! We love the colour and material! We also bought the corresponding Otto man. Which is already a great stand alone piece of furniture.

    It was a dream of mine to have a butterfly chair and after a couple of visits to the Cuero website, we decided to order one. We are very satisfied and impressed with Cuero’s service and quality.

    And we have the feeling that this will probably not be the last time that we will order with you Cuero again.

    Thank you very much for the beautiful chair!

    • Nils Kjerstadius

      Thank you so much for the kind words Budi. We are really happy that you are happy with your butterfly chair and with our service. We wish you many cosy evenings with your leather butterfly chair.

  2. Lara G. Sigurdardottir

    I have had an eye on the butterfly chair for many years and finally decided to go for it. After carefully looking at different producers I decided to go with Cuero. I had couple of questions about the chair and always received thoughtful and thorough answer within a day. We received the chair shipped to Iceland in perfect condition. The chair looks so nice in our living room and adds such a character to it. And it kind of wraps around you while relaxing in it, especially with the Icelandic sheepskin that we added on. I already am thinking about the sheepskin version of it and would definitely order again from Cuero. I highly recommend this company, both the service and products. It is one of the most honest one, if not the most honest one, I have had business with.

    • Nils Kjerstadius

      Thank you so much for your kind words Lara! I hope you are still enjoying your chair.

  3. Justin Michael

  7. Adrienne Yarme Hoelz

    We could not be happier with our mariposa butterfly chairs from Cuero. The Butterfly chair is for me not only a design classic and a lifestyle statement but it holds a personal memory of childhood visits to the MOMA in New York where I saw the BFK for the first time. Since then, I have always hoped that one day I would have my own butterfly chair. After much consideration and research and comparison between the many companies offering butterfly chairs, I always came back to the Cuero design.

    The Cuero butterfly chair has a pure and reduced aesthetic, the proportions are wider and therefore more comfortable, especially for lounging. The leather is supple and has a wonderful, natural color and feel. Attention has been given to the base where floor protectors are integrated in the design. I was somewhat unsure as to which color I should choose for our home and decided to send a few photos of our living space to the Cuero team, asking for their input. I received a prompt reply with kind and helpful advice. The Cuero company is competing at the highest level internationally and yet my individual concerns were taken into thoughtful consideration. The choices I then made were indeed perfect for our home. We love the two Cuero mariposa chairs that we have. Thank you.

    • Nils Kjerstadius

      Thank you so much for your wonderful words Adrienne! They really mean the world to us 🙂

  8. Carolina Collepicolo

    We received the Mariposa chair in Germany and WE ARE AMAZED! What a chair! It’s way beyond our expectations.
    Nils was great at communicating from the start. Delivery was so fast and the chair looks and feels beyond amazing. We are absolutely delighted with its customer services and the quality/design of the chair.
    The canvas is thick and strong, yet malleable and comfortable from the first time you seat on it. The leather has a beautiful natural color and finishing. Attention to detail was given to all the parts of the chair, from the proportions to where the metal frame touches the floor and the canvas. I love just seating and relaxing with a book on it as it allows the perfect posture for lounging.
    Thank you, Nils & Cuero team.

    • Nils Kjerstadius

      Thank you so much Carolina.

      It was a pleasure to help you with your butterfly chair.

  9. David Sutton

    I love this chair. The leather is such good quality and I imagine it will last well beyond my lifetime, I’m 40. I think I’ll have to get another so my children don’t fight over who gets it. It’s visually stunning, incredibly well made and Extremely comfortable. It’s the perfect seat to lounge and read a book or snooze away the afternoon in.
    Nils and his team were incredibly helpful, answered all my questions and came up trumps with the perfect seat for our living room.
    I won’t hesitate to recommend Cuero to all who admire the chair, and there will be many.

    • Nils Kjerstadius

      Thank you so much for your kind comment David. It was a pleasure to help you!

      Wishing you many happy years with your chair.

      Kind regards,

    Thank you to the team for a very professional and fast delivery of the 2 butterfly chairs for our holiday home. The chairs are amazingly beautiful. The quality is spectacular and where at first I thought they would be merely beautiful design chairs that I dreamed about for years, I can now say that they are extremely comfortable as well. We are going to enjoy them so much! I couldn’t be happier to have chosen Cuero!

    • Nils Kjerstadius (verified owner)

      Thank you so much Valnea. It’s a pleasure to have you as our customer.
