the ELLIS

butterfly chair

$1350

Your throne for any space

A well-placed chair speaks from across the room, drawing you in. Our take on the classic BKF / Hardoy style butterfly chair designed in the late ’30’s -. The reason it’s been around for so long and the reason it’s iconic is not just that  it embodies a timeless style, but also how it feels to sit in — a cocoon of comfort  Nestle in for your favorite book, sipping your morning coffee, or your evening unwind  glass(es) of wine (I have it on good authority that it’s also a great place to write product descriptions). The sheer amount of comfy positions is astounding.

product information

Description

We collaborate with a local metal artist to create these lasting, beautiful frames.  As opposed to a lot of cheap imitations that will use plastic joints, the sweeping frame of The ELLIS is forged from a single piece of rebar. While it might not take flight like an actual butterfly, this chair is surprisingly lightweight at only 8 pounds. The classic look and light body mean The ELLIS works anywhere from a fancy living room to deck. Handcrafted from our new favorite Denver full-grain leather, the beautiful seat will age and patina will time and use.

Details

Leather: full-grain, Denver cowhide leather. Our Denver leather has a wonderful distressed look and the color-change pull up-quality of high-end hides.

Base: wrought iron rebar

Measurements

Ground to front edge 14”
Front arms 20.5” high, 29” wide.
Back arms  35” high, 31” wide
Depth 32”
Weight ~12 pounds

At some point, a company put "genuine leather" on a product to trick you into buying it. Don't be fooled again. Let us send you a sample of the leather we use so you can see the difference in quality and color options for yourself (e-mail : leather@uphilldesigns.com)

customer & product care

handcrafted

There is no mass-manufactured answer to human experience. We are two humans designing and crafting pieces that we are obsessed with - they begin as one of a kind concepts and small details change piece to piece. Our LEATHER is characterized by small differences in dye, aberrations, range markings and varying grain patterns. We ask that you rejoice in the differences found in your specific piece. Learn more about our leather manufacturing processes here.

guarantee

We built it - we'll fix it. We’re the humans behind your product and we are dedicated to making sure you’re over the moon about your new heritage piece. Your product is intended for a lifetime of use - so please contact us if anything needs repairing or replacing. The best way is to send images and any explanation of the issue to repairs@uphilldesigns.com and we’ll respond with next steps.

leather care

Leather is an amazing material and with proper care our products will last a lifetime. Here’s what we ask. Keep it away from salt water. Buff out scratches with either your hand, or leather oil - this will aid in the rich ‘patina’ that is only possible in full-grain leather. Leather conditioner can treat leather that, after time, has begun to feel dry or brittle. Please test any oil or conditioner on a small, non-visible portion of your product. Oils and conditioners will darken the appearance of your product.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
