This is a reproduction of the popular Mies van der Rohe Daybed or Barcelona Couch. This design was first introduced and recognized as a signature modernist furniture model in architect Phillip Johnson’s New York apartment. We manufacture this daybed using Italian top grain, 100% aniline-dyed leather, hardwood frame, leather belting and stainless steel legs.
Our frame is constructed from premium grade hardwood - 1.5" x 4" thick - with a choice between walnut stained medium or dark brown, ash with rosewood stain, or ash with an ebonized black stain. The stainless steel legs are hand-polished to a high luster finish and are 1.5 inches in diameter. There is a choice of 9 inch legs (standard) or optional leg height of 12 inches. The size and geometry of the frame is true to the Mies van der Rohe original design.
The "bed" consists of individual leather panels - each piece is cut and hand-sewn using tufted-sewing technique not found in other reproductions on the market. Inside the bed cushion is high resilient - high density polyurethane foam. The cushion is supported by heavy saddle leather straps screwed to the frame and whose top match upholstery color. The bolster pillow is attached with buckled straps and is 7 inches in diameter by 36 inch long. (Twin Bed size is 74.5 x 37.5) Dimensions:
Overall: 76.5"w x 37"d x 15"h (18" with 12" leg)
