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.

Poet Sofa

Poet Sofa designed by Finn Juhl in 1941 for his own home was inspired by ‘free art’.   Today this sofa represents a part of Danish cultural history and modern furniture that exudes values that have more or less disappeared in these days of fleeting fancies.  The Poet Sofa is made to the finest manufacturing standards with hand-sewn upholstery, and its legs come in several different types of wood.
