I've always had a total love affair with Mies van der Rohe's Barcelona Chair.

Van der Roe designed this piece for the 1929 Barcelona Exposition and the rights to manufacture the chair were acquired by Knoll in 1953.

There have been many knock off variations inspired by this classic design but the original will always be considered a work of art and a timeless classic.

I love nothing more than mixing these understated classic lines, contemporary in nature with traditional elements as shown in the photos above. The design is sexy and sleek and creates a perfect balance when paired with softer classic elements.

I'll take TWO, please!
