Casa Calvet furniture

Taburete Casa Calvet
This is a beautiful corner stool with smooth curving lines. It has a small backrest which resembles the central balconies on the rear facade of Casa Calvet. The legs, as well as their joining parts, are straight, creating an interesting contrast. It is characterised by its simplicity and comfort. This stool was devised by Gaudí to fit into one of the corners of the director’s office in Casa Calvet.

Material: varnished solid oak
Measurements: 58 x 65 x 41 cm.
Sillón Casa Calvet
The style of this piece is halfway between the furniture designed by Gaudí for Casa Calvet and the items that he later designed for Casa Batlló. The round seat, which is rather austere and free from ornamentation, is attached by a support to the distinctive heart-shaped back. From this same support, the two arms project, each ending in an arch-shaped hand. Gaudí designed this armchair for the director’s office in Casa Calvet.

Material: varnished solid oak
Measurements: 65 x 70 x 52 cm.

Banco Casa Calvet Flores
A great work of ornamental carving. The back is composed of three large flowers, which are in turn surrounded by a further three floral motifs. Worthy of note is the fact that the arm is joined to the back by a cantilever structure, which makes this item of furniture both very graceful and fragile, in spite of its considerable size. It is remarkable for the richness of its decoration. This beautiful two- or three-seater bench took pride of place in the meeting room at Casa Calvet.

Material: varnished solid oak
Measurements: 118 x 95 x 54 cm.

Silla Casa Calvet Flores
This chair was designed by Gaudí for the meeting room in Casa Calvet. It has a very richly decorated design with an elegant central motif on the chair back. Its trapezoid shape makes it especially graceful. Gaudí used geometrical patterns of interlaced circles and coffee beans. The seat has five aligned holes to prevent the person sitting on it from slipping. Of particular interest is the use of a single support to join the seat to the backrest.

Material: varnished solid oak
Measurements: 52 x 94 x 54 cm
