Barcelona Chair - Spot The Difference

Real VS Fake Barcelona Chair

It would not be an exaggeration to say that this is one of the most copied chairs in the world. We only sell the Authorised Original Barcelona chair and footstool. This is distinguished from a copy in several ways.

How to spot a genuine Barcelona chair. The signature of Mies van der Rohe is stamped into the base of each chair and every piece is labelled with an individual production number. The cushions are upholstered with 40 individual panels cut, hand-welted and hand-tufted from a single hide, using only high quality Spinneybeck leather in a choice of hundreds of colours.  A reproduction Barcelona chair uses one large piece of hide and the piping is added later. Seat and back cushions adapt to fit the curve of the frame. The sides and edges of upholstery straps are dyed to match the individual upholstery colour.
