The company makes chairs, desks, tables, lighting fixtures, storage options, beds, and every other type of home and office furnishing you can think of. Even better, they make it all at a great price without sacrificing anything in the way of looks, durability, or craftsmanship. They're an emerging power in the modern and contemporary American Furniture market, and Smart Furniture is excited to offer their products to our customers through our online store. Buy your own amazing Blue Dot furniture today!<br /><br />Since their inception, Blu Dot has had a fun and fascinating aesthetic. When you see one of their products, you can often recognize it immediately as one of their designs. They believe in modern looks, crisp clean lines, solid colors, and beautiful construction. Everything they make comes from the contemporary, fresh perspectives of their designers, and the furniture they're making is really turning heads in the design community. <br /><br />Smart Furniture has partnered with Blu Dot for the last several years in yet another attempt to bring great ideas, great designs, and great furniture to our customers online. Blu Dot furniture is some of the best around; it's modern, it's comfortable, and it's very affordable. We're proud to partner with them for many reasons, but none bigger than those three. They believe in the same things we do, and they make amazing furniture for the contemporary home and office. They're relatively new, having been founded just 13 years ago, but in a little over a decade they've made a profound and lasting impression on the modern American furniture market. Whether you're looking for tables, desks, chairs, lighting, storage, or any other kind of home, office and public space furniture, you can find what you're looking for in the catalogue of Blu Dot furniture.<br /><br />Blu Dot was a business born of necessity, just like ours here at Smart Furniture. We first opened our doors because we wanted to give customers access to the products they were buying; we wanted them to have a say in the design of their own furniture, aka, design on demand. Blu Dot furniture has a similar philosophy, and they're focused on excellence and affordability. All of the furniture they make comes from the same original, inspiring idea, the idea that started the company; beautiful furniture, and beautiful design, should be attainable. It's that simple, and that revolutionary. <br /><br />The company was founded by three college friends who were freshly graduated and ready to move into new homes and apartments. In college they had all bonded over their mutual interests in design, architecture and artwork. When they were ready to start their own homes, naturally they wanted to outfit them in a way that reflected their ideas, their tastes and their advanced notions about design and personal space. But there was a problem; they couldn't afford the great furniture they loved, and they didn't like the low-quality or big-box furniture that they could afford. For many customers, this is a very familiar dilemma. But the three friends decided to do something about it. They decided if there was no supplier for their fairly common demands, then they would have to make the furniture themselves. And that's how they came to form Blu Dot. <br /><br />In the years since the company was founded, in 1997, the three friends, John Christakos, Charles Lazor, and Maurice Blanks, have gone on to create some of the most comfortable, innovative, and beautiful modern furniture on the contemporary American scene. Blu Dot furniture is just as lovely and well designed as any other modern furniture maker, and the business has stayed true to it's initial imperative; to keep the furniture amazing and the prices low. They created elegant desks, funky chairs and seating options, cool lighting systems and decor. And to top it all off, they made it affordable. That solved the problem they'd had right after college, when their taste level was much higher than their income level. Business born of necessity; just like Smart Furniture. <br /><br />Blu Dot has mastered the art of making affordable furniture that never looks cheap and that can boast levels of craftsmanship and aesthetic excellence measuring up the standards of any furniture maker in the business. Like Smart Furniture pieces, Blu Dot furniture is heavy on quality and low on cost. It's a business and a whole system of furniture that believes in democratic design, and in serving the customer first and foremost. Beautiful design shouldn't be the sole province of museums and high income Americans, it should be available to everyone at a reasonable price. Blu Dot furniture believes that, and so do we at Smart Furniture; that's why we make such great partners, and that's why we're so happy to bring you the whole roster of amazing Blu Dot furniture online.</span>

Buttercup Chair
designed by Blu Dot

Let this Buttercup Chair cradle you in a wonderful, swiveling recline. Seat made of bent plywood and base in satin plated steel. Blu Dot chairs add a stylistic edge to any space, and the distinctly modern look of this chair makes it accent any contemporary setting.

The Blu Dot Buttercup Chair combines a modern design style with show-stopping molded plywood to create a comfortable reclining swivel chair for you to enjoy. Blu Dot strives to design stylish modern pieces that are affordable and well-made for all to enjoy. They have succeeded with the Blu Dot Buttercup Chair. The design of the chair resembles the flower it is named for. The seatback of the chair cradles the user's back and flows around to connect with the armrests and seat of the chair.

The armrests curve outward similar to a buttercup's petals and connect to the seat in one fluid piece of bent plywood. One unexpected feature of this Blu Dot piece is the reclining swivel option available on all Buttercup Chairs. While the chair would be a great piece for any contemporary space without this added option, we're glad Blu Dot thought of everything and included the recline and swivel features for added comfort and functionality. The Buttercup Chair is a great piece for a room where you want to relax in style.

The versatility of the chair allows this piece to transition seamlessly no matter what the occasion. Whether you are entertaining guests or relaxing peacefully at home, the Buttercup Chair can fit your needs by providing style and comfort.

The materials used bring added interest to this piece. The molded plywood used to create the chair is smooth and inviting. Reminiscent of the molded plywood designs of the 1970s, Blu Dot used this pliable material to create the Buttercup Chair. The base of the chair is constructed from satin plated steel, completing the polished look of the chair.

The color palette for the Blu Dot Buttercup Chair includes rift-sawn white oak, graphite on oak, or walnut for the seat, back, and armrests of the chair. When choosing the color for your chair, click on the sample color swatches to see an enlarged picture. If you are still unsure about which color wood to choose, please contact us, and we will send you a free color swatch to make your decision easier.

The color you choose for your chair may depend on the room or space you plan to place the chair in. The walnut and rift-sawn white oak colors better highlight the natural grains of the wood, creating a smooth look, while the darker graphite on oak color appears as a solid sleek color. The color palette available for the chair includes three neutral colors that fit nicely into many contemporary spaces and settings. All three colors available for the chair come with the satin plated steel base, a nice complement to the rich wood of the chair's seat.

Once ordered, the Blu Dot Buttercup Chair usually arrives within to four to eight days from the time the order is placed if the delivery location is within the Continental United States.

    Comments about Blu Dot Buttercup Chair:

    Great overall quality and very striking. Perfect in our modern basement bar/lounge area. Graphite color perfect with other dark/espresso pieces. For a swivel lounge has very small footprint, not bulky at all and looks fantastic and clean from all angles, including the back/sides. Assembly with supplied hardware is frustrating and needs to be addressed by Blu Dot but dont let it dissuade you - can be overcome with store bought hardware as needed. If not for harware its a unique 5 star product.
