The Look for Less: Vintage Barcelona Chairs

Even if you don’t fancy yourself a home decorating expert, there are certain famous furniture designs that almost anyone can recognize: Phillipe Stark’s Kartell ghost chair, the Saarinen Tulip table, Wegner’s wishbone series, and Ludwig mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona Chairs. Of course, owning an icon doesn’t come cheap, and brand new, original designer furniture pieces can fetch upwards of $5,000 or more.

While there’s always the option of purchasing a reproduction for far less … we say why settle for something that isn’t authentic? Because it’s our goal at The Local Vault to offer the best-quality, most stylish furniture at a more attainable price, we’re always on the lookout for designer classics, and we recently jumped at the chance to pick up an iconic silhouette for our inventory: enter this gorgeous pair of vintage Barcelona chairs in brown leather.

To purchase a set of two Barcelona chairs brand new would cost about $12,000 … but you can own both of them from TLV for a third of that. We’re selling the pair of Barcelona chairs for $4,000!

In case that alone isn’t enough to get you daydreaming of exactly how you’d arrange these beauties at home, we put together a few fabulous inspiration photos that show just how versatile and stylish these chairs can be.

They’re perfect stationed across from a minimalist sofa in a living space.
