Favourite Furniture Fridays: Barcelona Day Bed

When Charmaine from My Best Friend Craig commented on last week's F.F.F saying she dreams of owning a Barcelona Day Bed, I knew that I had to feature this stunning piece. I too am a lover of the sleek design of the Barcelona series, and the day bed is so chic!
 
Designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe in 1929, this piece was created with a modern sensibility and has withstood the test of time. It still looks contemporary over 80 years later!

^Jen Ramos of Made By Girl has one, and we all know she has fabulous taste. Here's another shot of it in her former Las Vegas home:

Materials:
-handcrafted

-individual leather squares
-leather straps
-African ramim hardwood
-polished stainless steel legs


Do you prefer the white, the black or the caramel leather? I just can't decide. I'll take one of each please!

I totally forgot about these daybeds but every time I see one in a photo it stops me in my tracks! For the color, I love the caramel.

Thanks for the shout out Tiffany! Wow, 1929! I think my favorite is the caramel one, or white, or black. Heck, any color please! Someday...
Have a great weekend!
