Created by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe for the German Pavilion at the 1929 Barcelona Exposition, the Barcelona Chair and Optional Stool features the pure compositional structure that now epitomizes modern architecture. This piece is truly a classic in every sense of the word. From the comfortable leather upholstery, right down to the sleek silhouette--the Barcelona Chair and Stool are modern furniture at their finest. The Design
From the hand-buffed frame to the forty Spinneybeck leather panels carefully hand-welted together and hand-tufted with leather and buttons--the Barcelona Chair is a hand-crafted modern masterpiece. Mies van der Rohe's original 1929 design has managed to stay relevant today, fitting in seamlessly with almost any decor--from casual to formal--the Barcelona Chair is a modern must-have. Each chair is a tribute to traditional craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail.
