About the Item

This pair of gorgeous burgundy leather 'Barcelona' lounge chairs by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe for Knoll Studios is double-signed on each piece, with Knoll Inc labels to the seat cushions and Knoll Studio embossing with Mies van der Rohe signatures stamped onto both frames. Be wary of buying any Barcelona chairs that are unmarked, so many of what is out there is fake, and often times dealers are unaware how to properly authenticate. The color is a beautiful burgundy color to the cushions and the straps with a deep red color in a high grade bovine leather - the kind of quality you would expect from a top notch brand like Knoll. Beautiful color combination and a great option for an interior designer. Considered to be the epitome of modern design, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Lilly Reich originally designed the Barcelona chair in 1929 to serve as seating for the king and queen of Spain in the German Pavilion. This was Germany's entry for the International Exhibition, hosted by Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. These frames were made with polished chrome hand-ground and hand-buffed to a mirror finish with black leather upholstery straps attached with aluminum rivets. The upholstery is fabricated from a single cowhide with each individual panel being cut, hand-welted and hand tufted with leather buttons. Whether you're a designer seeking a quintessential piece or a collector adding to your modern design collection, this iconic set of easy chairs stand the test of time. Ideal for a Mid-Century Modern, Contemporary or European Modern room but also appropriate for a living room, study, den or home cinema. They would also work well in a Traditional, Transitional, Classical, American Modern, Craftsman, or Mixed-Style hospitality lobby or corporate location, such as; a private members club, conference room or executive office. MEASUREMENTS: H 30" x W 30" x D 30" Seat Height: 17" CONDITION: Very good vintage condition. Only very minor wear is noticeable upon close inspection. A couple minor rubs to leather and a couple small touched up spots to straps. Very attractive examples ready for immediate use.
