Designed by Finn Juhl in 1949 and today an icon within Danish furniture art. The Chieftains Chair is in itself a space filled with symbols inspired by weaponry and customs from foreign shores. Made by the very best craftsmen in carved walnut, this chair now exudes extreme grandeur. It is upholstered in the finest leather.
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.
