Modern Images: The Barcelona Sofa

In the event that you are a lover of Mad Guys, the piece furniture I am going to show you could remind you of Betty Draper chainsmoking at her therapist’s office while relaxing atop it. Bauhaus expert Ludwig Mies van der Rohe created by this day-bed and is known as The Barcelona Sofa. Mies began this line-in 1929 to furnish the Pavilion in the Barcelona International Exposition, his contemporary building, but the Barcelona sofa wasn’t designed until a year after.
