house of finn juhl


As I love the furniture designs of Finn Juhl, I am very happy to show you these gorgeous images of a house filled with furniture of this great Danish designer. First some background information for those who are not familiar with Finn Juhl.


Finn Juhl (1912-1989) was first and foremost famous for his furniture. In the 1940s, he broke with the established furniture tradition and designed a number of creations that regenerated Danish furniture design. However, the Danish designer was trained as an all-round building architect, not especially as a furniture designer, something he himself considered important to emphasize. On several occasions, he pointed out that as a furniture designer, he was purely autodidact. His oeuvre did, however, also comprise a broad spectrum of architectural works. He made an especially excellent contribution as an interior designer.


Today the license for producing Finn Juhl furniture lies solely with the company Hansen & Sorensen in Denmark. After producing the sofa Model ’57 since 1999 Hansen & Sorensen was given the license for the entire collection in 2001. Visit the Finn Juhl website to see which models are currently being produced.
