Iconic Modern Classic Furniture Reproductions from the Bauhaus, Mid-Century and Scandinavian Modern Eras
The Barcelona Daybed or Couch was designed in the late 1920's by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Lilly Riech, his companion and working partner. This iconic Daybed was created for a one of the many projects they were working on at the time, although it is unclear when exactly this was created.
We manufacture our Mies Barcleona Daybed reproductions very close to the "signature" design using full-grain, 100% aniline-dyed leather and high quality hand polished stainless steel frames. There was only one height daybed that was originally designed, however, we offer our daybed in two different heights: 15 and 18 inches. (No one else is selling this taller version, by the way.)

Below are the swatches of the Premium leather colors we offer for the Mies van der Rohe Collection. There is generally a 12% - 20% up-charge for all Premium Leathers. Our Premium leathers are full-grain, 100% aniline-dyed. Our Premium grade leathers have a soft feel to them and much of the hides natural grain patterns are retained. They are also a little shinier than the Standard Leather. Premium leather thickness is generally the same the standard leather: 1.0 - 1.2 mm depending on application of seating component for stretching and tailoring the upholstery design and condition.

We currently offer 4 standard finishes choices. Because we do our own finishing, we can usually custom make a item in a finish not shown, for an extra charge and a 25 piece minimum. Another advantage of in-house finishing is the same stain can be used across our entire product line, no matter who the designer. Something that DWR can't even do at three times the cost!
