Our Exhibition Sofa is based on the popular Mies van der Rohe Barcelona style chair, the iconic chair originally created for the Pavilion of German Representation at the 1929 Universal Exhibition in Barcelona, Spain. 

Shown here with Autumn Tan Leather, our frame is constructed from premium grade solid bar stock stainless steel. All joints are fully welded, sealed, and seamless. The frame is hand-polished to a mirror finish. The geometry of the frame is accurate to the Mies van der Rohe original design. Four snaps attach the back cushion to the frame; 2 snaps and a belt attach the bottom cushion to the frame.

The cushion surfaces consist of 80 individual top-grain leather panels; each piece is cut and hand-sewn using a hand-rolling welting technique not found on similar sofas on the market. The seat and back cushions are filled with high resilient - high density polyurethane foam that is CAL117 flame test rated. The cushions are supported by heavy saddle leather straps riveted to the frame and whose top and side edges match upholstery color. Compared to other similar sofas on the market, ours is much more comfortable.

Modern Classics Furniture offers two levels of Leather for the Mies van der Rohe series: Standard and Premium Leather. 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

Below are the swatches of the leather colors we offer for our Barcelona Style Chair. 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. 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.

We are happy to mail you a physical piece of leather so you can hold it in your hands. Just go you our material sample request form. Also, if you don't see the color you want, just let us know and we can try to source it.
