The 46 Sofa was designed in 1946 for a smaller upholstery company named Carl Brørup. At that time Finn Juhl was very much inspired by modern art especially by Picasso and Henry More.
The Sofa is fully upholstered and hand-sewn with legs in oak, teak or walnut. To match the sofa he designed the eye-shaped Sofa Table FJ 4850 with – as usual with plenty of details.
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.
