What’s the difference between the Barcelona Chair and the Mies van der Rohe Chair?

If you are an enthusiast of Mid Century Modern Style, you will be at some point interested in the Barcelona Collection, and you know that the Barcelona Chair is a fundamental element of the collection. 

Actually, the Barcelona Chair is the element that holds all the collection together. Its iconic “X” frame and its comfortable leather cushions are reproduced in the other elements, like the Barcelona Loveseat, and the Barcelona Sofa. This brings a great coherence to the collection, to use it as a group or individually in any decor. 

But sometimes you can find on the web the expression “Mies van der Rohe Chair”. What does it name?. Well, the Mies van der It’s essentially the same as the Barcelona Chair. The Barcelona Chair was created by Mies van der Rohe in 1929 as a main element of the Barcelona Collection in the International Exposition of Barcelona. Is used that people and the industry itself tend to name products by their original Designer. For example, the Tulip Table, a worldwide icon of Mid Century Modern style is often called Saarinen Table, in reference to it’s original creator, Eero Saarinen. In this case, the Mies van der Rohe chair is just like the Barcelona Chair.
