Revolving Decor: Butterfly Chairs

September 30, 2014 by Ariana | 1 Comment

As a teenager, I can remember my mom wishing aloud that she had kept an old dress, handbag or coat that had come back into style.  Now, with my own ‘tween’ daughter, I find myself often thinking the same thing.  The best comebacks, however, are those that are refreshed, restyled and revolve into something “new school.”  Now that we’re getting older, there is a lot more historical experience we can rely on!  First up?  My favorite butterfly chair.  My white canvas butterfly chair was my favorite item in my tween and teen years.  I love how this modern classic has revolved with updated materials.  Think cowhair, suede and leather.
