This is a high quality replica of the iconic chair originally created for the Pavilion of German Representation at the 1929 Universal Exhibition in Barcelona, Spain. Our chairs are close reproductions of the Signature design.
We make and excellent reproduction of the Mies van der Rohe lounge chair known the world over as the "Barcelona Chair" Shown here with Premium Espresso Brown leather, our frame is constructed from premium grade solid bar stock stainless steel. All joints are fully > MORE welded, sealed, and seamless. The frame is hand-polished to a mirror finish. The geometry of the frame is accurate to the Mies van der Rohe original design. Four snaps attach the back cushion to the frame; 2 snaps and a belt attach the bottom cushion to the frame.
The cushion surfaces consist of 40 individual top-grain leather panels; each piece is cut and hand-sewn using a hand-rolling welting technique found only on the "signature" brand and our brand, but not found in other replicas on the market. The seat and back cushions are filled with high resilient - high density polyurethane foam that is CAL117 flame test rated. The cushions are supported by heavy saddle leather straps riveted to the frame and whose top and side edges match upholstery color. Front and top corners of the cushions have no exposed seams. Compared to the "signature" brand and other similar chairs on the market, ours is much more comfortable.
