You don't want a beautiful chair that's no good for sitting on because it's stuffed full of cheap foam. Also check the cushions don't move about on the frame. The best quality reproduction Barcelona chairs have strong poppers and rivets which securely attach the cushions to the frame. Cushions which are too loose can again impair comfort.
In 1950, the original design was improved upon by Mies which resulted in a fully welded object in which additional braces at the welding points were eliminated. The one-piece frame made of stainless steel offered higher strength and spring.
The resultant effect is that this exquisite chair has remained exclusive. Royal influences have endowed it with a reserve that has increased instead of diminishing over time. It retains the ability to enoble itself to a discerning market, predominantly the tasteful and appreciative rather than the average consumer.
There are many reproductions of this classic. Designer Furniture stores all around the world offer this chair at a fraction of the original price which has made is much more affordable without compromising quality. It is also available in many wonderful colours and fabrics. From bright orange cashmere to red to purple to tan leather, there are enough colours to suit everyone's taste. Usually the leather chairs are available immediately however with the many cashmere colours a wait of 8 weeks is not unusual as they are made to order.
