Hello, hello! It's Mari here from Arcadian Home blog where you'll find lots of fabulous home decor inspirations. As part of my job I often get to visit lovely blogs like The Home Look to share some of the great interior design and decorating ideas I discover in my online travels.
Today's guest post is about the ever popular fanciful Butterfly chair, also known as the Hardoy chair and the BKR chair. With millions of copies sold over more than 70 years, the appeal of this design shows no sign of waning.
Take a look below at how versatile this simple chair is. It seems right at home both indoors and out, looking just as beautiful in many of today's eclectic spaces as it does in classic Mid-Century modern rooms. You might be surprised by some of the places where the iconic Butterfly makes an appearance. Please enjoy!
Seemingly drawn to the flames of a fire pit at The Parker Palm Springs, these white beauties gave rise to the title of this post—Fanciful Butterfly Chairs.
