This is a high quality footstool inspired by the popular Mies van der Rohe Barcelona Footstool introduced and made famous during the 1929 Universal Exhibition in Barcelona, Spain.

Our Exhibition Wide Footstool was inspired by the Mies van der Rohe footstool known the world over as the "Barcelona Stool." Shown here with Terra 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. The wide version of our footstool is 4.5" wider than the standard footstool, you can see a side-by-side comparison in the photos. Four belts with buckle attach the cushion to the frame.

The cushion surfaces consist of 20 individual top-grain leather panels; each piece is cut and hand-sewn using a handrolling welting technique not found in other versions on the market. The seat cushions is filled with high resilient - high density polyurethane foam that is CAL117 flame test rated. The cushion is supported by leather straps riveted to the frame and whose top and side edges match upholstery color. The cushion corners have no exposed seams.

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.
