Originally designed in 1929 by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe for the International Exposition hosted in Barcelona, Spain, the Barcelona Chair has since remained an icon of modern design and the inspiration for many counterfeits. It’s part of the Knoll Classics Sale and will receive 15% Off and FREE in-home white glove delivery* from Monday, February 25th through Sunday, March 3rd.
*For orders over $500 being delivered to the DC Metro Area.
Originally designed in 1946, the molded plywood chair established a long and successful relationship between Herman Miller and Charles & Ray Eames. With the formation and release of the Herman Miller Collection last year, Herman Miller has taken an elegant classic and updated it for 2013.
The most notable addition to the molded plywood chairs is seen in the upholstered seat and back option. With 6 different wood veneers, 3 leg options and 22 fabric and leather options, this chair is available in over 5000 configurations!
Our showroom floor model is an upholstered Lounge Chair with wood legs. The frame and legs are walnut and the seat and back is upholstered in Divina Melange ’931′.
Have you ever been online, in a store or even watching TV and seen a piece of upholstered furniture that drove your design senses crazy? Whether it was a great fabric, a bold leg design or other feature you just knew you had to have it! And then what happened? You did some shopping around and searching around but came up empty handed.
In that instance, Vastu loves to be able to provide completely personalized, handmade-to-order furniture. When Vastu co-owner Jason Claire returned from this year’s trip to the Salone del Mobile show in Milan, he had tufting on the brain. After seeing several vendors play around with this classic upholstery method he knew he needed something made for his home.
So he got in touch with Steven Anthony, our upholsterer out in Los Angeles, and this is what they came up with!
So with a concept in mind and the help of a Vastu designer, you really can make your design dreams come to life.

The sleeper sofa, love em or hate em they’re most definitely useful as they can make any space multi-functional. However, people don’t always find them to be comfortable or all that stylish, something that can be discerned by reading the comments section of a recent Apartment Therapy post on the same subject.
A little known fact is that a majority of the custom hand-made sofas we carry can be made as sleepers. All it requires is that you choose a frame that has loose seat cushions (so that you’re able to remove them) and that you pick a size that meets the minimum size requirements (66″ W for a full and 78″ W for a queen, in most cases). And if you’re worried about being able to see the sleeper component at the bottom of the sofa when it’s not in use, then don’t! We increase the size of the lower portion of the sofa (the apron) to conceal everything.
The sleeper component consists of a 4″ innerspring mattress and a 4″ inflatable air mattress. That gives you 8 inches of mattress that prevents you from feeling a crossbar making it comfortable to sleep on.
Co-owner Eric Kole actually has a Metro Sleeper Sofa in his own home that’s used by friends and family when visiting.
The best part of being able to custom make sofas is that we have full control over the design of our furniture. If you want a sectional sofa with a sleeper inside, in a grey fabric with wood legs and tufting on the back…it’s totally doable. Just for you.
Back when we learned that Herman Miller was not only going to be tweaking the Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman to more closely reflect the original design, but to also offer it in a White Ash finish…we knew we had to get one for the showroom floor! After what seems like forever, it was delivered this morning.
And it is AWESOME! Take a look below! Read more
