Butterfly Chairs


New on Zazous, just in time for Christmas, is the gorgeous Butterfly chair. Handmade by artisans in India in sumptuous thick buffalo hide with a powder coated black steel frame. Only £185 with shipping included.


 


The Butterfly chair was designed in Buenos Aires in 1938 by the architects Antonio Bonet, Juan Kurchan and Jorge Ferrari Hardoy and was developed for an apartment building they designed in Buenos Aires.






 In the early 1940s, it was produced in the US by Artek-Pascoe, Inc., New York. After the war, the US production rights were acquired by Hans Knoll, who had recognized its commercial potential in 1947 and added it to the Knoll line.







 



The chairís commercial success led to a surge in unauthorized replicas. After a losing a legal case for design-infringement, Knoll ceased production in 1951.


Since then, the butterfly chair continues to be produced by many manufacturers from many countries.

Frank Lloyd Wright AirBnB on Lake Michigan


In the small town of Two Rivers on the shores of Lake Michigan is a Frank Lloyd Wright designed house from 1940. You can stay there. We did. 

The house was designed for a Life Magazine article in 1938 to demonstrate a 'dream house' intended for a forward thinking American family with an income of $5-6,000 a year. The house was eventually built more or less to that design 2 years later for local businessman Bernard Schwartz who lived in the house with his family until 1971.

The house is extremely original, all of the 1940 bathroom fittings remain (and work just fine) and the house is reputed to have the oldest working underfloor heating system in the US. We were not able to test that theory as we were there in August. There is no air con but among the many period accessories are some pretty lethal art-deco electric fans. Watch your fingers.

A combination of exposed brick, polished concrete floor and extensive wooden paneling combined with high ceilings and large windows make the home feel simultaneously cozy and airy. A neat trick. The pierced wooden blinds at clerestory level and the galleried landing also lend the house a sophisticated air. We didn't have the cigarette holders so had to make do with gin and tonics...

We enjoyed our 2 nights there very much indeed and can definitely recommend the house, Two Rivers in general and the Susie Q fish market too!
