House of Finn Juhl is delighted to announce the relaunch of the Fireplace Chair, a timeless design originally conceived by Finn Juhl in 1946. Despite being out of production for six decades, the chair's distinctive design has been kept alive through the efforts of auction houses and media across the globe, solidifying its status as a highly sought-after design classic. The chair's desirability on the vintage market is no coincidence. With sensual details such as the paper-knife armrest and its lavish, informal comfort, the Fireplace Chair is a true Finn Juhl classic.

During the 1940s and 1950s, Finn Juhl designed a range of furniture for the Danish furniture company Bovirke, including the Fireplace Chair. These were predominantly manufactured in the city of Vejen, a small Danish town with a once-thriving furniture production industry. However, like in many regions of Denmark, most of these manufacturers have since closed.

Determined to preserve the rich tradition of Danish craftsmanship and local production, House of Finn Juhl acquired the Vejen-based and renowned Danish solid wood manufacturer Schou Andersen Møbelfabrik last year. This acquisition has expanded and future-proofed the Danish production of Finn Juhl furniture. The newly acquired facility will be responsible for the manufacturing of the Fireplace Chair, re-establishing the production of Finn Juhl furniture in the city of Vejen.
