FINN JUHL! YOU KNOW HIS CHAIRS AND I LOVE THEM

Filed under: Finn Juhl — jherzlinger @ 12:24 pm

I was on the hunt for a perfect pair of chairs for a living room I am working on.  A very soft eclectic feeling, so a mix of a

stunning sofa in a navy almost black silk mossier, very 1940′s square arms by Christian Liagre, and I wanted a pair of danish chairs, particularly Finn Juhl’s

chairs, and I thought I would introduce you to a man who, without him we may not have as stunning as we do, eclectic projects, that inclued Danish Modernist inspiration!

Long sentence for an amazing talent!

Finn Juhl was born in 1912 and was a student of architecture at the Royal Danish Academy of fine arts. We know Juhl mostly for his iconic chairs, which I am sure you are familiar with, at

least one of the images.  Juhl gave a soft edge to the lines of wooden modernist chairs, favoring 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.  One of his hallmarks was the floating back and seat which is seen in most of his chair designs.

Its funny, as an interior designer to see periods of furniture go in and out of style.  

There was a time in the 80′s and 90′s when the influence of Danish design was not really sought

after.  But rest assured, this casual elegant, that we are all very onto now, includes pieces from the great master.

Enjoy!

Love,

Jamie
