The ulitmate in modern tufted furniture is of course the iconic Barcelona Chair – a 1929 design from Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. These chairs are great because they can easilty fit into almost any kind of decor.
The DWR version is made from supple VOLO leather and is absolutely gorgeous! I want it in a really lovely carmel color! My sister has a vintage classic one she got from my aunt and uncle…hers is in white.
Here are you options…either the real deal from DWR or pretty good looking reproduction from a New York based dot com called ModernReproductions.
In this case, I am a bit of snob…I think I would go with the DWR version because of the detailing in the tufting and the quality of the leather.
Design Within Reach (DWR) – Barcelona Chair – $4083
ModernReproductions.com – Barcelona Pavillion Chair – $829
The ultimate to me is the Barcelona Couch. A beautiful large daybed with a neck roll. Very chic. Put one across from a modern OR classic sofa. For fun party and entertaining seating…instead of couches use two facing each other in a living room.
