Antoni Gaudí Furniture Photos

Antoni Gaudí, renowned architect of Barcelona, designed several pieces of furniture for some of his buildings. His chairs, cabinets and church objects are well known. Because Gaudi worked with several tradesmen and craftsmen, it is difficult to say how much of each design is due to him, but it is fair to say he inspired the works. These original images by Jim Steinhart are arranged chronologically to help understand the evolution of Gaudi's thinking.
