Our Exhibition 2-Seat bench is inspired by the design of the popular Mies van der Rohe Bench, also known as the Barcelona Bench". It is a great compliment to any of the pieces introduced and made famous during the 1929 Universal Exhibition in Barcelona, Spain.

The frame of our Exhibition 2-Seat Bench is constructed from premium grade hardwood (walnut or ash) - 4" wide x 1.5" thick - with 5 finish choices. 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 40 individual top-grain, aniline dyed leather panels; each piece is cut and hand-sewn using a hand-rolling welting technique not found in other similar benches on the market. Inside the cushion is high resilient - high density polyurethane foam. The cushion is supported by leather straps screwed to the frame and whose top match the leather color.

  • Top-grain leather from Grade A hides
  • Smooth or Textured, depending on the color
  • Vegetable Drum Dyed with Moisture and UV protection built into the dye
  • Made in Italy and imported to our factory
  • No split hides or bonded leather
  • Leather thickness is generally 1.0 - 1.2 mm

All our leathers are considered equally durable and are ideal for home or commercial use. To read more about leather, read our A Guide to Understanding Upholstery Leather: A Primer.

Below are the color swatches of the leather colors we offer, along with price level, Level 1 being the lowest cost and Level 4 being the highest cost. Not all leathers are offered on all products and have varying price levels, so please refer to each individual product page for which leathers are applicable. Our Standard Leathers (denoted with the prefix L1) are top-grain, aniline-dyed, and then color corrected with a slight embossing to create a more uniform grain pattern. Our Premium leathers (denoted with the prefix L2) are also top-grain, aniline-dyed but have a soft feel to them and much of the hides natural grain patterns are retained.
