Barcelona Day Bed by Mies Van Der Rohe
Mies Van Der Rohe, the German / American designer, was synonymous with the world of interior design and there was one collection of furniture in particular which formed the foundation of his reputation - this collection being his iconic Barcelona furniture. Originally designed and released in 1929 for the World Exposition in Barcelona, it was a revolutionary design that found instant favour with both those at the event and a wider audience of consumers following the event. The Barcelona collection most typically encompasses a chair, sofa and day bed (the latter of which is pictured). Mies Van Der Rohe's Barcelona collection is one of those timeless classics in interior design and it is just as acclaimed today as it was almost a century ago.
