Designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe in 1929, they were to serve as seating for the king and queen of Spain at the International Exhibition in Barcelona.
Produced by Knoll and available through Design Within Reach, they are insanely expensive but classic, iconic and divine!
Being that I have an unnatural hatred of brown, I thought that black or white were my only options. Until I saw the navy Barcelona ottoman's in Elle Decor, January/ February 2008. Love!
Until today I actually thought they were navy leather (which is a custom option through Design Within Reach), but it turns out they're actually upholstered in Camelot Wool by Donghia.
I think I still want mine in navy leather!
