Press release: Model Butterfly
Butterfly with a Bohemian touch



Eilersen is renowned for its comfortable furniture. Furniture that helps you enjoy your time off and lets the family relax. Now, Eilersen is launching a collection consisting of two- and three-seater sofas that come with an armchair. Butterfly is designed around a delicate frame with down-filled seat and back cushions and armrests.

This new model is called Butterfly.

Danish-Japanese partnership

Eilersen cannot take full credit for the Butterfly concept. Butterfly was conceived and sketched by Japanese designer Yuzuru Nishiyama, in collaboration with Jens Juul Eilersen. The idea behind Butterfly was to create a sofa that balances the formal and the informal.


Dual expression

Butterfly has two expressions. From the back, it appears slim, minimalistic and quite formal, whereas from the front its look is dominated by the soft, down-filled cushions with visible stitching. These stitches give Butterfly a softer look, with a Bohemian touch. With its tall cushions, the sofa is the best and most convenient place in your home to rest or just sit and chat.

With its slim body and slender, stainless steel legs, Butterfly is a light sofa, perfectly suited for smaller living rooms or as a soft touch in the dining room.


A wooden frame

With a knotless pinewood frame and down-filled cushions, Butterly is made of strong, solid materials, much like Eilersen's other sofas, so you can expect its shape and comfort to last a long time. Eilersen offers its large assortment of textiles, so each individual can choose the colour, texture and composition of the product.

At the design fair in Stockholm, Eilersen has decided to introduce Butterfly in a rough fabric, available in 4 colours.
