How to choose your ideal sofa

Barcelona Table Replica

Before buying your beautiful Barcelona Sofa, take a look.

First of all, think about it first in what style do you feel more comfortable: Scandinavian? Shabby Chic?, or just eclectic?. For many people, the answer to this question is Mid Century Modern.

Second: measure your room. Length, width, and height of your space.

Once you are clear about your space and style, we can talk about the sofa itself.

Do you have any pets? children? If you have children or pets, this is going to affect the decision of the model or the material: Fabrics tend to be inconvenient with children and pets because of the risks of spills and animal hair. This makes leather, or fiber plastic a better alternative. You have to consider how many people will seat or sleep in the couch daily.

With these questions, you can decide if one single sofa is enough for you, or if you need a sectional or a modular solution. One solution, very common too, is to buy two sofas if this is the case.

And finally, take a look at your budget, to see which sofa is more adapted to your needs and means.

Always remember that you don’t have to pay a lot when it comes to a sofa. There are plenty of alternatives, like the replicas market. Barcelona Designs offers you the best alternative in prices in spectacular and gorgeous sofas, like the Barcelona Collection: Barcelona Sofa, Barcelona Loveseat and the Barcelona Chair.

What’s the Barcelona Collection about?

Barcelona Chair: Royal Comfort

Its the year 1929, and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, the pioneer of Modernism, was in charge of the famous German Pavillion of the International Exposition of Barcelona.

That Pavillion was a revolution in the world of design for its use of space and materials, but, unexpectedly, some “minor” exhibits emerged like classics of the furniture, like the Barcelona Chair.

Originally made to allow some rest to the Kings of Spain if they visit the Pavillion, the Barcelona Chair was an accomplishment in design due to its use of industrial materials, and its ‘X’ shape, made with reminiscences of the ancient Rome.
