Our Products: Barcelona Chair Replacement Parts

Barcelona Chair Replacement Parts

This item is the Strap (or belts) which fit one of several models of the Iconic chair designed by Mies van der Rohe in 1928, known worldwide as the Barcelona Chair. Since we began offering our belts, we have come to learn that there are generally 3 different models of the Barcelona Chair made over the past 60+ years. The strap requirements differ for each model. So double check your chair model before ordering to ensure you order the correct size belt.

 
Sort by:
Knoll Barcelona Chairs:
First, of course, are the the Knoll brand Barcelona Chairs which uses screws (on the older models) or rivets (on the newer models) to attach the straps. There are 17 straps per chair and 7 straps on the ottoman. The 28.5 inch straps will fit both the back and seat cushions. These straps are 1.5 inches wide.

Replica Barcelona Chairs:
Next, there are the replicas from Italy and China which generally use rivets to attach the straps to the frame. There are 17 straps per chair and 7 straps on the ottoman. The 28.5 inch straps will fit both the back and seat cushions. These straps are 1.5 inches wide.

Argentina Made Barcelona Chairs:
And finally, there is an Argentina brand of chair which were made in the 1960s through 1970s (more or less). These models have bolt together frames and have straps that wrap around the frame and are sewn or riveted together at each end to form a loop. There are 16 straps per chair and 6 straps on the ottoman. The straps for these chairs need to be longer and wider:  32 inch straps will fit both the back and seat cushions; and these straps are 1.75 inches wide.

Both our standard straps (28.5 inch) and Argentina Style straps are made of "belt grade" cowhide leather.  When you order 17 standard straps, we will include the snap kits you see in the photo. When you order the Argentina Style straps, we include the 4 fasteners needed to secure the belt with the loop.
