House of Finn Juhl

Finn Juhl was an architect and one of the leading figures in the creation of "Danish design" in the 1940s. He gave a soft edge to the lines of wooden modernist chairs, favouring organic shapes which often took the wood to the limits of what was possible. He generally used teak and other dark woods, unlike many of the other proponents of the Danish Modern movement who often used oak in their designs.

Chieftains Chair

Chieftains Chair – designed by Finn Juhl in 1949 is an icon within Danish furniture art.   The Chieftains Chair is in itself a space filled with symbols inspired by weaponry and customs from foreign shores. Made by the very best craftsmen in teak and walnut, this chair now exudes extreme grandeur. It is upholstered in leather.
