The Barcelona Chair is the star of our Barcelona Collection and one of the most popular items among our Best Sellers. It’s an iconic piece that’s powerful enough to stand on its own but that can easily go great with any other mid-century modern piece.
We thought we’d take this concept one step further and curate a selection of 5 mid-century modern pieces that would go great with our Barcelona Chair replica. Now, don’t think of this article as an unyielding rulebook, but rather a springboard for your own adventures in home design.
Eames Lounge Chair
Our Eames Lounge Chair is probably the most iconic and recognized representations of mid-century organic modernism. This chair is perfect to contrast the style of Barcelona Chair.
Originally designed by American husband and wife Charles and Ray Eames, Barcelona Designs is proud to offer a faithful reproduction of this masterpiece, made following all original specifications.
This Mid-century Lounge Chair and Ottoman masterfully combine the nostalgic comfort of an old baseball mitt with a sleek, modern design that continues to distinguish this classic, authentic design among all other famous furniture pieces.
The Barcelona Daybed is expertly built following Mies van der Rohe’s exacting standards: The Barcelona Daybed sits upon on a polished tubular stainless steel base and a strong ash wood platform finished with a protective clear lacquer. Taken from a single cowhide, 72 individual panels are then cut, welted and tufted with leather and buttons, all by hand.
For additional comfort, its cushions are filled with high-end, fire retardant, urethane foam. For cushion support, 17 straps are stretched over a rubber webbing. Finally, its characteristic matching leather bolster, unique to the Barcelona Daybed, is secured to the cushioning platform with straps and lock snaps for additional support.
The Noguchi Table is the perfect combination of art and design that will go great along the Eames Lounge Chair. This iconic table was designed by Japanese sculptor Isamu Noguchi, joining a curved, wood base with a freeform glass top. Noguchi himself considered this table his only furniture success.
Le Corbusier LC2 Sofa
Chances are that your Barcelona Chair will be an iconic piece of your living room. But while you sit on your iconic mid-century modern throne, where are your guests, friends, and family sitting? Offer them an equally comfortable, elegant and iconic place to sit with the Le Corbusier LC2 Sofa.
The LC2 Sofa is one of the most famous and successful pieces from Le Corbusier furniture collection. With its comfortable, welcoming cushions, the LC2 Sofa entices anyone to sit down and relax.
The LC2 Sofa is also a fresh, modern take on comfortable, sofas typically found in the elite gentlemen’s clubs. There’s not a reason why your living room, with the LC2 Sofa and the Barcelona Chair combined, should feel the same way.
I don’t know about you, but when the weather looks and feels cold, there’s nothing I want to do more than curl up with a book in my favorite reading chair and under the warm glow of an arch floor lamp.
Separately, the Barcelona Chair and the Arco Lamp are statement pieces in any living room. Together, they’re a match made in modern decor heaven, making reading well into the night a luxurious affair.
You can find a true, high-quality reproduction of Castiglioni’s Arco Floor Lamp in our store. It’s one of our best selling pieces.
