This is a reproduction of the popular Mies van der Rohe Daybed, also known as the "Barcelona Daybed" or "Barcelona Sofa". This design was first introduced and recognized as a signature modernist furniture model in architect Phillip Johnson’s New York apartment. 

Our reproduction of the Mies van der Rohe Barcelona Daybed is true to the size and geometry original design. The frame is constructed from premium grade hardwood (walnut or ash) - 4" wide x 1.5" thick - with 4 finish choices:  medium walnut, dark walnut,  rosewood walnut, or ebonized black ash. The stainless steel legs are hand-polished to a high luster finish, are 1.5 inches in diameter and have a smooth plastic foot. There is a choice of seat height: either the standard 15" height (using 9 inch legs) or 18" seat height (using 12 inch legs).

The cushion surfaces consist of 78 individual top-grain, aniline dyed leather panels; each piece is cut and hand-sewn using a hand-rolling welting technique found on the "signature" brand, but not found in other reproductions on the market.  Inside the 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 the leather color.  The bolster pillow features tufting at each end and is attached with buckled straps.  The bolster measures 8 inches in diameter by 36 inch long. 

Shown here in Autumn Tan leather.

Modern Classics Furniture offers two levels of Leather for the Mies van der Rohe series: "Standard" and "Premium". Each of the these groupings feature:
  • Top-grain leather from Grade A hides
  • Semi aniline-dyed (standard) and 100% aniline-dyed (premium)
  • Made in Italy and imported to our factory
  • No split hides or bonded leather
We are happy to mail you a physical piece of leather so you can hold it in your hands. Just go to our swatch request page. Also, if you don't see the color you want, just let us know and we can try to source it.

Below are the swatches of the leather colors we offer for the Bauhaus, L’Epirit Nouveau and Mid-Century Modern Collections. 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.
