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 #304 grade solid bar stock stainless steel, 12mm thick. 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. For an extra charge, we can powder coat the frame in one of our 8 standard colors or specify your own.

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 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. Buttons are about the size of a dime and are made with the same leather as the cushions. 

Compared to the other similar chairs on the market, ours is much more comfortable and better made. Please read our Buyers Guide for Mies Barcelona Chair for more details on our chair.

Modern Classics Furniture purchases leather from a variety of tanneries in order to provide our own collection of colors. Not all leathers are available for use on all products. Each product in our catalog will indicate which leather is available for that piece of furniture. We have divided our leather selections into two groups, Standard and Premium with different price levels within each group. All the leathers we offer feature:

  • 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. Also, we are happy to mail you a physical piece of leather so you can hold it in your hands. Click on any of these swatches to see an enlarged view.

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.
