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 top-grain, 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.

Below are the swatches of the leather colors we offer for the Mies van der Rohe Collection. Our standard leathers (denoted with the prefix L1) are top-grain, semi-aniline-dyed, corrected with a slight embossing. Our Premium leathers (denoted with the prefix L2) are top-grain, 100% aniline-dyed and 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. We do not use split hides leather. Leather thickness is generally 1.0 - 1.2 mm depending on application of seating component for stretching and tailoring the upholstery design and condition. Both the Standard and Premium Leathers are considered equally durable and are ideal for home or commercial use.
