Don't sit on my couch. . . I mean, cake!

Have you seen this couch before?  It's the Barcelona Couch by Mies van der Rohe.  You can buy the non-cake version of it at Design Within Reach ( on sale now for $7,527 (previously $8,856).

Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886-1869), a German architect, is widely regarded as a pioneer of modern architecture.  Many of his iconic buildings are in Illinois like the Farnsworth House, the Illinois Institute of Technology, and the Seagram Building and 860-880 Lake Shore Drive in downtown Chicago.  He also designed 2 buildings for the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, TX.
