Designed in 1946, the 109 Chair is manufactured in walnut. Its light, elegant and appealing designt is typical of Finn Juhl. Beautiful and a pleasure to touch, and very comfortable to sit in, the 109 Chair is the armchair companion to the 108 Chair.

As one of the leading figures in twentieth century furniture design, Finn Juhl is responsible for introducing North America to the Danish Modern movement through his work on the United Nations Headquarters in New York City. Originally trained as an architect, he began creating furniture for himself in the 1930's and soon gained widespread recognition for his organic forms and expressive treatment of wood, often taking the material past the limits of what was thought possible. Thinking with the mindset of a sculptor, his ambition was to design furniture with movement and life.
