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.
One Of The Most Expensive Butterfly Chairs In The World – And Rightly So
You have probably noticed that this chair is more expensive than the other chairs in the market. You may have seen that there are “butterfly chairs” that you can buy for as little as €200 and sometimes even less. But be careful before you try to save money on these products.
There is a huge risk that you will be fooled and very unhappy with what you get. Just read this story that we got from one of our customers in France.
“I was wanting a bkf chair three years ago and after having search different websites I found a photo of your product which was, to my opinion, the best in term of design (worldwidly speaking).
But, unfortunately, the photo of your product (at that time i didn’t know it was yours) was illegaly used by a scammer who used it to sell its bad quality product.
So, i ordered it there….and then i received a very bad quality product and found that i had been scamed and, of course, no possibility to contact the seller anymore .
So when i received this poor product, i continued my research and found, at last, that this product i wanted so much was yours…
So, ashamed, I dealt with my poor BKF chair for two years (I call it the chair of the shame…really…) dreaming of yours for Three years.And at last, i will have the real deal.”
– Jean-François, France
Don’t make the same mistake as Jean-François and lose three years living with a sad lounge room. Get it right from the beginning instead! Read on and you will find out what makes this chair different from everything else, and why it costs more.
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.
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 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 the chair will maintain its shape forever.
In the beginning, we used to make our chairs with 3 mm leather, only to find that the leather started to stretch after some use, making the whole chair ugly and uncomfortable to sit in.
We were not proud of our chair at that point and we wanted something that you can pass on for generations.
In our search for a tougher chair, we came to the conclusion that we needed to go up one millimeter in leather thickness. This was a very tough decision for us to take because we knew it would increase the final price of the chair a lot.
The reason for this is that 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 our crossroad, we 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.

Top 0.1% Leather In The World
Only the very best of the best is good enough for you. We take this policy very seriously.
So we only buy the finest 0.1% of all the leather in the world. This means that 99.9% of all the leather is discarded in our selection process.
What do we mean by this?
Well, first of all, we only use vegetable tanned leather which is only 5% of all the leather in the world.
Of this, we can only use the thickest part of a cow hide to find 4 mm leather. This part is found in the back of the animal and is the most expensive part. It stands for less than 20% of the skin, meaning we are now down at 1% of all the leather in the world.
Furthermore we look for the most beautiful skins. Out of 500 skins presented to us, we only buy 100 of them, taking us down to 0.2%.
Finally, since our chair is larger than other butterfly chairs, it consists of much larger pieces. These pieces need to be free from scars and insect bites so that you have a chair that is as beautiful as possible. To get these large pieces, we need to use half of the leather to make other smaller items such as stools, cardholders etc. When we arrive to the pieces of leather that work for our chair, we have selected away 99.% of all the leather in the world!
When you see, smell and touch this leather, you will feel like you are in a beautiful vineyard, surrounded by mountains and grapes.
This leather is a by-product from meat production.
