The Barcelona chair is a leather lounge chair designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Lilly Reich. It was originally designed for the German Pavilion, that country's entry for the International Exposition of 1929, which was hosted by Barcelona, Spain. It was first used in Villa Tugendhat, a masterpiece of Mies van den Rohe in the City of Brno (Czech Republic).

How our barcelona cushions are made:
- First, a piece of high density, polyurethane foam is used as the base.
- It's wrapped it in a Dacron sheet (fire retardant)
- Measurements of the base cushion is taken to estimate how much leather it will require
- Then the leather is cut into squares for each panel.
- Once the leather is cut to the exact measurements, each square piece is sewn together, then the panel is sewn together.
- The piping is then prepared. Once the piping is complete, it is attached directly over each seam mark, to cover the seam.
- Once all of the above is complete, the buttons are sewn onto the cushions.
Chair is true to the original in dimensions and the corners of the cushions are seamless, just like the original
strong leatherette straps (leatherette straps were found to be more durable than leather straps) are used to attach the cushions to the frame of the barcelona chair
similar or identical colored straps are used to match the color of the cushions
