Swallowtail Chair in Cherry
Created by Brian Fireman
Shown with a cherry frame and walnut seat, the Swallowtail chair has a split back whose shape pays homage to the wings of the swallowtail butterfly. The North Carolina based artist is known for flowing, organic designs that abstractly reference natural elements: animal bones, the stance of a bird, or in this case, the swallowtail wings he sketched frequently as a child. Low-set arms easily slide under a dining table, making the chair equally suitable for dining or living room.
