A tribute to the classics: The Barcelona Chair

My favorite chair of all times could be the Swan. And I will definitely pay tribute to that beauty very soon. But if I had to pick another favorite it would {no doubt} be the Knoll Barcelona Chair.

Created by genius Ludwig Mies van der Rohe for the 1929 Barcelona Exposition... "the Barcelona chair features the pure compositional structure that now epitomizes Modern architecture"

{no kidding!}




The child's Barcelona chair and stool are 85% scale of the original!



Exclusive manufacturing and sales rights accorded to Knoll by the designer in 1953 AND
KnollStudio logo and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's signature stamped into the frame of each piece.




Interested???

The Stainless steel Beauty will set you back about $6907
While the Child Chair another $3840

YIKES! But totally worth it {if you ask me}

Why you asked? Because, this chair holds the Museum of Modern Art 1977 Award. That's why.


Check out Knoll you guys!!!
