Barcelona, Day One
- Bubbling with an electrical energy and warmed by the Mediterranean sun, Barcelona is unsurprisingly one of Europe’s liveliest destinations.
- Layer by layer, a crumbling 18th-century flat in the middle of Barcelona finds new life at the hands of architect Benedetta Tagliabue.
Designed by Patricia Urquiola, and released by Kettal, the Maia line of outdoor furniture—which features intricate, handwoven, Alhambra-tiled plaiting—feels even more relaxed with this newly added footstool.
- On our second day in Barcelona, fueled by café con leche and enough jamon to kill a horse, we excitedly settled into a breakneck tour of modern Catalan design and architecture.
