Closer Look: Mies van der Rohe's Barcelona Daybed Replica



Following the popularity of the Barcelona Chair and Stool, Mies van der Rohe created the Barcelona Daybed in 1930. His pieces that were created during this time for the Barcelona Pavilion are held in a high regard due to the modern elegance it exudes that can be used most in any room, and the Barcelona Daybed certainly embodies this criteria. 

After the recovery from the Great Depression, the Barcelona Daybed was again catapulted in to high demand when Philip Johnson requested it for his New York apartment in 1953. Unlike other replicas, the Modern Classics Barcelona Daybed replica honors the modern elegance style, and enhances versatility by offering it in a height of 15 inches or 18 inches. The Modern Classics legs are crafted from polished stainless steel that supports a solid walnut frame. The cushion and straps are High Quality Italian Leather that come in 15 different color choices.


Come check us out at either our Chicago or Seattle Showrooms and see why this piece has remained so popular throughout the years!
