- Consider buying a replica.
As you’re probably already aware, there is a certain sense of prestige and elevation that comes with owning an authentic designer piece, whether it is an article of clothing, an accessory like a handbag or wristwatch, or something else. But unless you are true design devotee and it is a real passion of yours to collect authentic modern design pieces, there is really no reason to own an original Barcelona Chair when there are so many high-quality replications of it available on the market. As long as you research the manufacturer you are buying from, you can rest assured that these reproduction pieces will last as long as the original would. The only difference, aside from the name, will be that you can save hundreds if not thousands of dollars than if you bought an authentic Barcelona Chair. Additionally, replica designs have a bit more creative freedom than the original design. They can come in a variety of colors and finishes, and oftentimes these manufacturers create pieces of their own to complement the overall look, such as footstools.
- Spruce up your study or office space.
The Barcelona Chair makes a great easy chair to curl up in with a good book. All you need is a lamp and a side table to create the perfect reading nook. The armless Barcelona Chair is streamlined enough to fit even in small offices or study spaces, whether you have an extra chair set up for a guest or want somewhere to take a break and relax.
- Accent piece in your bedroom.
The metal legs combined with the classic upholstery create a unique and transitional look that fits in pretty much any room in your home. Maybe you don’t have a separate office space or study room, but you still want somewhere to sit and relax. The Barcelona Chair can fit nicely in your own bedroom when you want a space to yourself to read a book, sit on a laptop, or anything else. With its simplistic appearance, sturdy base, yet considerable size, the Barcelona Chair is a great way to take up some extra space in your bedroom.
- Family room or lounge.
