While many pieces of kid-sized furniture are all about fun and playfulness, STIN.com's Mies van der Rohe-inspired Barcelona-style Chair for children is much more about showing your little ones that you can be stylish, no matter how old you are. Available in a variety of premium leather shades, from sleek, understated browns and blacks to vibrant red, it can fit into any home, and at just two-thirds the size of the original design, it is exactly the right proportion for you child to curl up in with their favourite book.
Mies van der Rohe created the Barcelona Chair as part of his design of the German Pavilion for the 1929 International Exposition in Barcelona. It was initially designed to seat the King and Queen of Spain. Drawing upon inspiration from the Emperors of Ancient Rome, Mies van der Rohe developed a collection that 'harmonized the old and new in our civilization'. The Roman influences are particularly apparent in his signature criss-cross square frames. And with the reduction in size of this model, it is the perfect addition to your little one's bedroom or play area, adding a sprinkling of luxury to playtime.

Ludwig Mies van der Rohe was a German-American architect and is regarded as one of the most important figures in the history of architecture. His ‘less-is-more’ approach to design became the gold standard for many generations of modern architecture. The simple forms and extravagant materials Mies van der Rohe used to design the Barcelona Pavilion have inspired many modern minimalist buildings including Capel Manor in Kent, England.
