With the variety of contemporary style furnishings available, buying a chair can be challenging at times. The chair selected should cause you to feel better as well as boost the look of the house. The Barcelona chair is one item of contemporary furnishings, which is considered as innovative and fashionable furnishings created in the last millennium. The chair was initially developed for the king and queen of Barcelona and it is the reason the chair got its name.

Mies Van Der Rohe developed the first Barcelona chair in the year 1929. It is said that the chair was a result of combined effort of Rohe and designer Lilly Reich. In fact, some experts say that Reich was more powerful in making the chair's style. It is said that his motivation was foldable stool and Egyptian chair which was most commonly used by the pharaohs and Romans.

The preliminary style of the chair consists of frames which were attached together. It was then remodeled in 1950 using steel and metal frames which provided it a better look. The structure is created by embedding two items of steel cafes in the front and rear of the chair. Steel gives the chair high durability and easiness to handle the chair. Cushions are completely covered with rubber and foam.

The Barcelona chair has Green guard certificate which indicates that it is eco-friendly and hence, will not create any kind of pollution. The raw materials used for making this type of chair is costly and is properly checked before starting the manufacturing to ensure the quality. The chair is sleek and is smooth to sit on. On the other hand, the steel frame indicates that the complete shape can be created with one piece of steel.

In 1953, Rohe provided the license to Knoll Company and they are still holding all trademark rights. Although it is the only certified company to manufacture Barcelona chairs, a lot of other companies also creating same chair. Some are excellent while others are reasonable enough. However, a unique Barcelona chair is still the most suitable furnishings of the current millennium. The quality of material used in manufacturing and craftsmanship cannot be compared with original with duplicate which are manufactured by other companies. But, if you cannot go for the unique one, a reproduced chair with similar style can be used and which can fit into your budget, will also work. Other chairs which are most popular are tomato chair, pony chair, heart chair and corona chair.

The Barcelona chair, because of its increase to reputation and record, has experienced reputation and increase in sales and development globally. It was almost eighty years before when the first item was completed, and now, it has taken the globe by making some changes in its style from the time it was first manufactured. The Barcelona chair is a work of art that is highly recommended by architects and builders and also considered as one of the best products of its kind for those who want to purchase the unique chair.
