What color leather are the Barcelona chairs? - I have a similar colored room and am thinking of the Spinneybeck Volo Tan VO945. Is that the color you used? Thank you!!

Those are definitely not Barcelona chairs. Look carefully and you'll see they have arms. Also, the legs are different from the iconic Mies design.

Tugendhat lounge chair by Knoll . Mies designed those chairs for the Tugendhat residence in 1930

It looks like the iconic Barcelona Couch. Although it may be a knock-off, I suggest always going with the real deal.

Slightly ironic that it's priced at $8K at a place called "Design Within Reach."

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Modern Icons: The Barcelona Couch
The daybed's low profile keeps spectacular views of Lake Michigan open. This apartment is in one of Mies's iconic Lake Shore Drive apartment buildings in Chicago.
This is a fresh take that honors the past in Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's iconic International style apartment buildings at 860-880 Lake Shore Drive, which enjoy sweeping views of Lake Michigan. The designers used iconic Miesian furniture. A well-placed Barcelona sofa keeps the view open while emphasizing low-slung horizontal lines.
