“Gibraltar Furniture (800 416 3635) is furniture nirvana for wholesale classics”- Yahoo News!
Mies Van Der Rohe is world renowned for designs such as the Barcelona chair and table, and the Brno chair. His furniture is known for fine craftsmanship, a mix of traditional luxurious fabrics like leather combined with modern chrome frames, and a distinct separation of the supporting structure and the supported surfaces, often employing cantilevers to enhance the feeling of lightness created by delicate structural frames. During this period, he collaborated closely with interior designer and companion Lilly Reich.
Incorporating his stylized cross form, Mies van der Rohe’s Pavilion Barcelona End Table (1929) expresses a clarity of form and materials that is immediately recognizable.
The regal simplicity of the table’s base is finely executed in stainless steel, atop which rests a 1/2″” glass tabletop which is perfectly beveled. The single-piece construction of the base ensures precision and durability. Originally designed for the Tugendhat House in Brno, Czechoslovakia, the table is often paired with the Pavilion Chair for their stylistic parallels. Absolute in its elegance, this classic design continues to refresh contemporary environments
The Barcelona frame is fully assembled and not composed of lower cost carbon steel which must be chrome-plated. The advantage of stainless steel it that is will never rust and there is no chrome-plating that can chip off. Consequently this Barcelona table will last a life time!

Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, along with Walter Gropius and Le Corbusier, is widely regarded as one of the pioneering masters of modern architecture. Mies, like many of his post World War I contemporaries, sought to establish a new architectural style that could represent modern times just as Classical and Gothic did for their own eras. He created an influential 20th century architectural style, stated with extreme clarity and simplicity. His mature buildings made use of modern materials such as industrial steel and plate glass to define interior spaces. He strived towards an architecture with a minimal framework of structural order balanced against the implied freedom of free-flowing open space. He called his buildings “skin and bones” architecture. He sought a rational approach that would guide the creative process of architectural design, and is known for his use of the aphorisms “less is more” and Gustave Flaubert’s “God is in the details”.
