The Icelandic Butterfly 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.
'La Mariposa', or the 'Butterfly chair', designed in Buenos Aires in 1938, is also known as the 'BKF chair', named after its three creators Bonet, Kurchan and Ferrari. This icon is part of the MoMA collection and has also found a spot in the Frank Lloyd Wright house, Fallingwater.

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.
How to clean the sheepskin?
Brush and vacuum regularly to keep wool fluffy, soft and neat.
Small stains and minor soiling can be sponged off with a damp cloth. You can use special liquid for wool, mix it with water and use froth only to clean stains (do not use much water).
Leave skin to dry away from sunlight and direct heat. Do not put lambskin in the dryer. Fluff the hair back up by rubbing your fingers through it. You can also carefully brush it.
