OK, they may be slightly overpraised (and overpriced), but they they do look plush.
The Barcelona chairs are a design classic. They are to a modern room like a string of Chanel's
pearls to a black dress. After all, they were designed for the Spanish King and Queen.
The Mies van der Rohe pavilion, where the chairs and the ottomans were first exhibited in 1929, remains one of my favorite places on earth. There you can really appreciate the beauty of van der Rohe's creation.
To be fair though, it must be said that they aren't all that comfortable.
But then again, I imagine haute couture isn't always...comfortable...either?
