We grew up with butterfly chairs, and so we have a certain fondness for them. In our House Call: Diana Fayt, Diana has one (that she found on the street!) in her bedroom, and although we don't usually think of them as indoor chairs, it looks fabulous.
We see the old-school ones for sale on Craigslist from time to time, and we may just have to snap some up.
