The Knoll Barcelona chair was introduced to the world in 1929 when Ludwig Mies van der Rohe was asked to design a chair that was fit for a king and that would sit inside of the famous German Pavilion in Barcelona, Spain. He took on the challenge and the result was the most sought-after and well known modern piece of furniture ever made available to anyone who wants it. This chair is actually still made by hand and that's saying a lot considering that nowadays everything is made by machine in order to cut costs and stay profitable. It's obvious why Knoll has not asked for the Barcelona chair manufacturing to change just by looking at the soft leather and the immaculate proportions of every angle and curve.
So why should you be the owner of a Knoll Barcelona chair? Here are just a couple of good reasons that we defy you to argue against.
- This chair has won the Museum of Modern Art award.
- The Knoll Barcelona chair is eco-friendly and certified by Greenguard, so you can feel good knowing that you are not harming the environment and are not getting a chair made of cheap PVC material.
- No other chair will add as much excitement to your home or office as this piece! And just wait for all of the great conversations that will be started when your friends and family sit on it and are amazed at how comfortable it is.
So there you have it, my favorite three reasons why everyone should own a Knoll Barcelona chair. And if you are worried about the cost, know that there are retailers out there who will promote the chair a couple of times a year so you can save some money and not break the bank!
