Originally designed to accompany the iconic Chieftain Armchair, Chieftain Sofa and Egyptian Chair during the famous 1949 Guild Exhibition, on behalf of cabinetmaker Niels Vodder, the unique coffee table's organic shape is now regarded as an exclusive, typical Finn Juhl design. Defined by its beautifully curvaceous tabletop, finished with a distinctive rounded brass inlay, the table has been expertly crafted from solid walnut, forming a sophisticated, timeless design that is perfect for a living room environment.
Finn Juhl was born on the 30th January 1912 in Frederiksberg, Denmark.
Although trained in architecture, it was his modern furniture designs that made him an international name. His first pieces of furniture were designed for his own apartment and were manufactured by the young Danish carpenter, Niels Vodder.
In 1946 Juhl got his first major interior assignment at Bing and Grøndahl’s store at Amagertorv in Copenhagen. This later became one of his main works and was awarded with the Eckersberg Medal in 1947. Soon after, he was given the opportunity to help furnish the new headquarters of the United Nations in NY - something which established his name with the American audience.
