The Butterfly or BKF chair was designed by the Argentinian architect Jorge Ferrari Hardoy in 1938 while working for the Austral Group, in Buenos Aires, Argentina. His partners, Antonio Bonet and Juan Kurchan, were also in the Austral Group, so the chair was named “BKF” after them.

Featured in the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) it is a timeless classic and lends itself to many settings. We are in love with our new white canvas and brown cowhide butterflies and we think they may just be perfect for your wedding or event!

 

We are super excited to be able to offer our clients our fabulous new white bentwood chairs:

They look absolutely stunning as can be seen in Nadia Coppolino and Nick Bartel’s wedding, you can see more of their incredible day here.

We think they look amazing in all kinds of settings whether your style is country rustic, urban minimalism or something in between. Teamed with our fabulous recycled teak tables they create the perfect foundation for your personal style to shine.

We also have white bentwood bar stools for canapés and the bar scene after dinner to create a cohesive look for the entire day:

A sneak peek at Jana and Kurt’s stunning wedding at Deux Belettes Guesthouse. Styled and coordinated by Frank and Joy, many thanks to Fleuriste and Your Gourmet. Bleached recycled teak tables, white tiffany chairs, mirrored candleholders, classic white wicker and crisp hemstitched linens provided by Frank and Joy created a fresh clean base for the beautiful florals and stunning detailing on the table names and menus.

What can I say, I just adore bentwood chairs. The gorgeous curves, the timeless elegance..they simply transform a table setting. Whether for an informal family gathering with a rustic feel or for an over the top sensory overload of an extravagant gala dinner, they always work. Many thanks to Mr. Michael Thonet!
