Originally created for the German Pavilion of the 1929 International Exhibition in Barcelona, the chair design is world renowned and probably best recognized as the father of modern design. Designed to seat the king and queen of Spain, its regal presence is still an iconic piece even after 80 years. Made in Italy with the finest materials, quality is superb and truly fit for royalty.
Each chair begins with flat bar-stock steel, bent, and welded into form. The chrome steel frame is hand ground and buffed to a mirror-like finish. The cushions, including the buttons and welting, are made with 100% genuine Italian leather. Employing the Capitonne technique, individual panels of leather are cut, hand welted, and hand tufted to create a deep and precise tufting.

Top Grain (Corrected):
Top grain leather Barcelona chair has some grain correction. Typically the surface layer is removed of imperfections such as insect bites, scars, brands, grain variations, etc. by means of buffing or sanding. It is then dyed and the grains are "embossed" into the leather giving it a uniform grain appearance. The process is finished by an application of a pigment top coat protectant. Top grain leather, the "family-friendly" leather is more stain resistant and less susceptible to the environment, but generally not as soft and supple as uncorrected leather.
Semi-Aniline leather Barcelona chair offers pure aniline leather that has a small amount of pigment or clear finish thus allowing the natural characteristics of the hide to still show through while offering some of the benefits of color consistency and increased durability.
Full Grain Aniline (Uncorrected):
Full Grain Aniline, premium hide with minimal scarring, defects, etc. has not had any grain correction. The leather left in its most natural state is softer, suppler, and thicker than corrected leather. Less than 5% of all hides can be considered as full grain aniline. Uncorrected leather is generally higher in quality and therefore more expensive. The hide is aniline dyed with no pigment top coat protectant. Since no two hide is alike, each full grain Barcelona chair will exhibit a unique look and feel, not found in corrected leather.
