The Barcelona style was created by Bauhaus director Mies Van der Rohe for the International Exposition of 1929, held in the eponymous city. As the King and Queen of Spain toured the German Pavilion, this ottoman and its matching chair were provided as somewhere to pause and talk for a while. Later in his career, Van Der Rohe’s Barcelona Chair & Ottoman and his other designs became widely-recognised classics. Timeless and sophisticated, the quilted leather and perfectly proportioned stainless steel frames of the Barcelona range became a byword for contemporary elegance.
Our Classics’s Barcelona Ottoman is made from the highest quality Italian leather and stainless steel, and is available in a range of colours, ideal as both home and office seating.
