Barcelona Ottoman Reproduction

If you're one of the many fans of modern furniture, check out the options for cheap Barcelona ottoman reproductions and replicas and pick one up today!

Having lasted nearly a century and outlived many other flash in the pan designs, the Barcelona furniture has endured as a modern classic, found in museums, modern homes, and other settings all over the world, beloved for its design and history.

And while many shoppers prefer the "real" thing when it comes to famous works of art, savvy budget shoppers will enjoy the many Barcelona ottoman reproductions available at their fingertips.

Is a Barcelona stool replica as good as the real thing?

And what's the difference between the replica and the real thing?

The naming dispute over the Barcelona chair and its companion pieces goes back to the 1920s, when Mies van der Rohe designed the chair, the stool/ottoman, coffee table, and daybed, for the International Exposition in Barcelona, Spain, for visiting Spanish royalty. It was kind of a big deal.

Because it looks so cool, Knoll bought the rights to the furniture and began selling it under the trademarked name, Barcelona, to fans of modern furniture all over the world.

But since the copyright to the design has expired, it means no one owns the rights to the design itself. Anyone can make a knockoff and charge whatever they want. Which is great for most of us, because Knoll charges a few thousand dollars per piece of furniture that bears the Mies van der Rohe name. And the only difference between the "authentic" piece and the knockoffs is the name of the designer stamped into each piece.

So the cheaper Barcelona stool replica models are sold under the names "Barcelona-style," "Exposition," or "Pavilion," reflecting its history while avoiding the name dispute.

So, where do we get one?

Barcelona Chair and Ottoman replica sets

Buy a set and save!

As you can see, buying the ottoman by itself is not always the easiest thing in the world to do, though Amazon is likely your best bet, as the listings above show.

You're more likely to find a Barcelona chair and ottoman replica set, sold together, which can be found at pretty good prices too. Buying in sets will give you some leeway on color, too, beyond the classic black or white.
