La Mariposa, or the Butterfly Chair, was originally designed in Buenos Aires in 1938 by Jorge Ferrari Hardoy, along with Antonio Bonet and Juan Kurchan. This classic chair is also known as the Hardoy chair or BKF chair after its creators.

In the late 1990's Lars Kjerstadius created the most comfortable and well proportioned version of this chair design to date. By making changes to the original open design Lars made a chair that was better suited to the size of 21st Century humans: The chair itself has been made 30% larger, the position of the leather has been adjusted and the steel frame is flat-packed for easy delivery to any location. We call this version of the design the Swedish Butterfly Chair.

To produce the new Butterfly Chair Lars Kjerstadius created the company Cuero ('Leather' in Spanish). Today the company is still family-owned and run by his son and daughter-in-law. The Butterfly Chair is made deep in the Swedish forests with a clear focus on quality and sustainability. 

Made of a double-layered, 100% water and UV-resistant fabric from the famous French textile manufacturer Sunbrella, the Sunshine Mariposa Butterfly Chair is a perfect outdoor lounge chair. Featuring galvanised chrome or black steel with a zinc undercoat and an epoxy-painted frame, the chair is purpose built to keep out moisture and avoid corrosion. To drain all rainwater away from the chair there is a hole at the bottom of the cover making the chair dry faster. The chair also has hidden velcro attachments in the 'ears' to secure the cover in windy weather.
