Our Exhibition Sofa is based on the popular Mies van der Rohe Barcelona style chair, the iconic chair originally created for the Pavilion of German Representation at the 1929 Universal Exhibition in Barcelona, Spain.

Shown here with Autumn Tan 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. The geometry of the frame is accurate to the Mies van der Rohe original design. 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 80 individual top-grain leather panels; each piece is cut and hand-sewn using a handrolling welting technique not found on similar sofas 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. Compared to other similar sofas on the market, ours is much more comfortable. Please read our Buyers Guide for Mies Barcelona Sofa for more details on our sofa.

Modern Classics Furniture offers two levels of Top-Grain Italian Leathers. Each of the these groupings feature:
  • Top-grain Italian leather from Grade A hides
  • Semi aniline-dyed (standard) and 100% aniline-dyed (premium)
  • Made in Italy and imported to our factory
  • Have a UV and Moisture Guard built into the dye
  • Are not split hides or bonded leather
We are happy to mail you a physical piece of leather so you can hold it in your hands.

Below are the leather colors we offer for our Barcelona Collection. 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. 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.
