I’ve had my butterfly chair since I lived in my very first apartment down on Elizabeth Street. The folding chair is a classic design, and it’s also pretty comfortable to sit in. My chair’s cover is about to need replacing, which has made me start to wonder if I should keep it at all. I can’t decide if the wire-framed seat makes me think of some sleek mid-century interior or a dorm room. Maybe it’s just my personal association of my chair with my 19-year-old self? (While Knoll originally manufactured the chair, today it is available everywhere, including Target, where it is categorized as dorm furniture, ahem.) What do you think? Is it a 'do' or a 'don’t' for a (mostly) grown-up apartment?
