The Barcelona Chair

The Barcelona chair is one of my favorite pieces of furniture. It was designed by Mies Van Der Rohe in collaboration with Lilly Reich for the International Exposition of 1929. The sleek stainless steel legs are inspired by the campaign and folding chairs of ancient times. The tufted back and seat adds to the elegant at the same time modern feel to it. The chair is also available in white leather but it's the black leather chair that serves as an icon of the Modernist movement.
