Before & After: Mies van de Rohe Barcelona Chairs
Looking at them straight on, these Barcelona chairs don't appear to be in horrible condition. Upon closer inspection, however, you notice the scratched and worn leather, the deflated cushions, and then there are those straps! It appears a repair was attempted at one point, but not a very good one. We were happy to get these in our workshop and glad to have the opportunity to restore them to their original condition.
Ah, much better! Ludwig would be proud. Another Barcelona restoration can be found here and here is a set of Barcelona stools that were restored.
