Comparison Guide: Mies van der Rohe Barcelona Daybed Reproduction

Base Price: $ 2,240

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.
