House of Finn Juhl is now relaunching the “Little Mother” sofa because we find it beautiful and extremely relevant in a modern context. The sofa comes in two lengths and presents itself as a seamless design with a slight and natural curvature towards the center.
The organic shape and tight upholstery nicely accentuate the sculptural expression of the sofa. Its shape embraces the seated body, making it comfortable in any position. There are no sharp edges against the body, just soft rounded shapes that will lightly give in. The “Little Mother” sofa is entirely handcrafted, down to the smallest detail.
Today, 75 years later, the “Little Mother” sofa is just as relevant in decorating a home as it is in an elegant hotel lobby.
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.
