Our Exhibition Daybed was inspired by the design of popular Mies van der Rohe Sofa, also known as the "Barcelona Couch". This design was first introduced and recognized as a signature modernist furniture model in architect Phillip Johnson's New York apartment.
Our Exhibition Daybed is close to the size and geometry of the original design. The wood frame is constructed from premium grade hardwood (ash) - 4" wide x 1.5" thick - with 5 finish choices. There are two stainless steel bars under the frame for support. 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 78 individual top-grain, Italian leather panels; each piece is cut and hand-sewn using a hand-rolling welting technique not found in other versions 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. The bolster pillow features tufting at each end and is attached with buckled straps. The bolster measures 8 inches in diameter by 36 inch long.
Shown here in Buff Tan leather and Dark Walnut Frame with 9 inch legs.
