Barcelona Couch

Mies van der Rohe's Barcelona chair is as iconic a piece of furniture as exists — but as with most single-seat creations, it can get kind of lonely. Make room for some added company with the Barcelona Couch. Designed in 1930 a year after the chair — and the pavilion for which it was created — debuted, this rectangular couch is basically flat, with a top made from 74 individually-cut, hand-welted, and hand-tufted panels from a single cowhide, a Sapele Mahogany platform, polished stainless steel legs, and a single cylindrical cushion at one end. Elegant, simple, and unlike most couches, built to last a lifetime.
