Narrower and taller than a daybed, the Barcelona bench is available in three sizes and offers an attractive alternative to the traditional dining chair. It is padded leather upholstery makes it a good crossover piece, creating a visual bridge between sitting, eating and cooking areas in an open-plan home. The one-, two- and three-seat Barcelona benches are available in eight shades of aniline leather – why not buy all three and mix up the colours for a Mondrianesque effect in a monochrome interior?
