In spite of its minimalist appeal, the Barcelona Couch has a luxurious feel about it that will bring to mind the rich setting of old time psychologists with their mahogany furniture and wooden accents. Of course, the Barcelona Couch is made for the modern Sigmund Freud. With its geometric shapes, sleek lines and clean surface, it is hard not to imagine lying on it while revealing one's deepest, darkest secrets.

Designed by Mies van der Rohe and manufactured by Knoll, the Barcelona Couch is made up of 74 individually-cut, hand-welted, and hand-tufted panels from a single cowhide. The Barcelona Couch is completed with a Sapele Mahogany platform, polished stainless steel legs and a single cylindrical cushion.
