More On Finn Juhl

Finn Juhl was born in Frederiksberg, Denmark in 1912 and was steered initially into a career in architecture by his father. He studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts under Kay Fisker who was considered a leading architect at the time. Juhl excelled and was later awarded the C.F. Hansen prize for young architects. After working for several years at Vilhelm Lauritzen's architectural firm Juhl designed his own family home and left the company to set up his own design study focussing on his love for interiors and furniture design.
Juhl was a designer who would become known as the founder of the danish modern movement and was credited as one of the designers that brough the style to worldwide recognition. Often considered ahead of his time, his iconic designs are much admired and sought after to this day. There are many of his designs worthy of mention, an example is the instantly recognisable Pelican chair designed with its sumptuous curves inviting you to take a seat. The Grasshopper chair, named for obvious reasons was one of the pieces that catapulted Juhl into designer legend status. The sleek and beautiful Chieftain chair with its curved armrests famed for its comfort is considered one of the best of his work. Although well known for his chair designs, Juhl designed desk, tables and some notably bold coloured sideboards combined with beautiful wood. read more

Handsome sideboard bought in mid December, and delivered to Germany 10 days later (despite chaos at Dover). The sellers made this a neat straightforward transaction, and wrapped it, for the journey, with TLC.

I recently brought an Art Deco dressing table from the furniture rooms. The piece was exactly as described and Im very pleased with it. They were extremely easy to deal with, prompt with their replies, and the delivery arrived exactly when arranged. Very good service all round

We bought two club chairs from Toby and Katie. The chairs are great and good value, and they were very reliable and organised sellers. However the best thing was that - without being asked - they offered for us to check the condition of the chairs when they were delivered and to take them back if we were not happy. This was incredibly fair. In the end the chairs were exactly as described.
