Polished stainless steel legs add to the beauty of this modern classic design. About the original Lilly Reich Barcelona chair Her work was strict, orderly and pristine. She amazed her colleagues with her design for a Barcelona chair, a scaled down version of the modern Bauhaus architecture, meant to occupy, augment and explain the design concept. Did she know how deeply his small version of a settee would influence the furniture industry? It did. Furniture companies picked up on her ideal and, in time, New York apartments became the sophisticated repositories of the sleek, fashionable, and unadorned furnishings we have come to think of as "Modern". Accessories were next to adopt the style, with crystal appearing in square columns as vases, and coffee tables that matched the streamlined sofas. Owning a replica of a Lillian Reich Barcelona chair is like owning a piece of architectural history. It represents the beginning of an age when designers began to see architecture in terms of pure geometry. The Barcelona house was a plain and simple rectangle, easily understood and adopted to a residential scale, and the furniture industry, under Lillian Reich’s influence, followed suit. The motto, "Form follows function" was the mantra of the day, and the chair designed by Lillian Reich is the epitome of this dictum. The metal legs are straight, sturdy, and minimalist in true Lillian Reich fashion. An unadorned rectangular slab of wood sits atop the legs on the chair, and strapped to the wood is a tufted leather cushion. Fair use interpretations of these chairs are offered by RegencyShop in white or black chair. The white chair would be well placed in a bedroom; the black—appropriate in a study or foyer. Think how interesting one of them might be, used as a coffee table in front of a soft-as-butter black leather sofa, or perhaps at the end of a black pedestal bed. Although Lillian Reich led the Bauhaus seventy-some years ago, her influence is still felt today in homes, offices and restaurants that enjoy the ambience of a classic, chic modern style. Even as fair use interpretation, Lillian Reich would recognize the clean lines and rich materials of her chair that led to a revolution in furniture design and lasted through a century.
