The Barcelona Chair, and the entire Barcelona Series, is probably the crown jewel of the Mies van der Rohe furniture catalogue. The Barcelona Series defines elegance, a stripped-down but highly polished and keenly drawn series of furniture that's razor sharp when it comes to style. Leather and steel combine to form a swooning, but simultaneously sturdy and level appearance that works perfectly with modern, pre-war, and even contemporary furnishings and rooms. At home in the office and well suited to the home, this is truly museum quality furniture that can go anywhere. Other Mies van der Rohe designs available from Smart Furniture and Knoll Furniture include the Krefeld Series (a chair, bench, settee, side table, coffee table and sofa), the Brno Chair, and the MR Series, including both chairs and tables. It's easy to find the right piece for the right room with this many options.
Mies van der Rohe is one of those titans of international design, a name instantly recognizable to any fan of 20th century architecture and furniture design. His furniture and buildings brought him instant and constant acclaim during his lifetime, and his work has only grown in stature and importance since its long-ago debut. Much of van der Rohe's work was done in conjunction with the Knoll Furniture company, the home of some of the very finest interior design anywhere in the world, and a veritable stable of internationally renowned designers and stylists who called it their manufacturing and distribution center. Smart Furniture is very proud and excited to be able to offer our customers access to this incredible furniture - though it was created and produced about 80 years ago, it's every bit as fresh and bold as the latest and greatest in interior design.
