Opening at 42 West Street in Greenpoint, Brooklyn in June 2023!
It’s a cold winter afternoon. Winds are howling outside your window. You sit comfortably in your Icelandic Sheepskin Mariposa Chair, holding a warm cup of hot chocolate. Gentle sparks are heard from your fireplace as you watch your favorite show on TV. Remember what it feels like when you wear a woolen jumper? This cozy chair is far better.
The Icelandic Sheepskin Mariposa Chair is as comfortable as it is beautiful. Sit down, get warm and relax. Read a book, watch a movie, play video games, take a nap. This chair is the very definition of the word cozy.
Sheep farming in Iceland is as old as the settlement of Iceland itself. To this day farmers are rearing their sheep by a method established by centuries of tradition, with most farms still family-owned and operated. The breed is still the same as in the time of the Vikings – sturdy small animals, well adapted to the environment.
Much of Iceland’s lamb production is simply based on sustainably harvesting the bounties of nature. The use of hormones is prohibited and antibiotics are strictly regulated. The Icelandic weather, unpolluted air and abundant supply of clean mountain water make the use of pesticides and herbicides unnecessary.
A warm and soft feeling of safety will rush through the body of anybody that touches our ecological Icelandic sheepskin. You will find that this sheepskin butterfly chair is larger than a normal butterfly chair. Combined with the soft characteristics of Icelandic Sheepskin, prepare yourself for a bomb of outstanding comfort.
Mariposa- A Better Butterfly
Our Mariposa 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 and sheepskin hide. The environment will thank you for using this chair. It’s clear that Cuero Design is a place where nature meets art.
When it comes to butterfly chairs, size does matter. Our Mariposa chair is more than 30% percent larger than the average butterfly chair you will find, providing superior comfort and better stability.
"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."
