This is a high quality chair inspired by the iconic chair originally created for the Pavilion of German Representation at the 1929 Universal Exhibition in Barcelona, Spain.

Our Exhibition chair was inspired by the Mies van der Rohe lounge chair known the world over as the "Barcelona Chair" Shown here with Espresso Brown 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-like finish. 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 40 individual top-grain leather panels; each piece is cut and hand-sewn using a hand-rolling welting technique not found in other similar chairs 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. Front and top corners of the cushions have no exposed seams. Compared to the other similar chairs on the market, ours is much more comfortable.Features:
  • Polished Stainless Steel Frame

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.

I have long wanted a "Barcelona" chair. I was prepared to buy one for my library, when I found Modern Classics. I spoke to the owner at length about the leather and ordered the MC version. The chair is fantastic. It is heavy duty, not flimsy; the stitching is extraordinary; the seat is comfortable as well as beautiful. The chair blows away other replicas (Room & Board, you should hang your head in shame) and makes me smile almost every time I walk by it. Great quality, more than fair price, winning customer service; why go anywhere else?

We are delighted with our purchase of an Exhibition Chair from Modern Classics. It was packaged extremely carefully so that it survived its cross-country trip perfectly. As well the company was easy to deal with and it arrived almost overnight!
