I seem to have a thing for chairs, especially mid-century modern ones. I can’t stop collecting photographs of them. I’ve already done a montage of the Bertoia diamond chair, and I’ve been hording images of the Eames lounge, the Saarinen tulip chair, and the Panton chair. Today I must be feeling a bit subdued (summer’s not my season) since I’ve chosen Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona chair. It’s an absolute classic, obviously, and works pretty much anywhere, but interestingly, as you’ll see, almost all the interiors that include the chair (or chairs, as they’re most often seen in pairs) are rather quiet, neutral, formal even, in the strict modern sense. I don’t particularly lust after the Barcelona chair, though I would love a Barcelona daybed upholstered in white leather. Anyway, here’s what I found:
And, my favorite, the Barcelona daybed in white . . .
