Brand: House of Finn Juhl

Designer: Finn Juhl

The Reading chair is one of Finn Juhl's more simple, yet elegant, pieces. The chair is characterized by intricate details and a quirky story. The chair was designed in 1953 and allows for multiple sitting positions - a unique design function which is typical for Finn Juhl's furniture. Earlier on, the Reading Chair has only been available with an upholstered seat, but it has now been relaunched with a veneered seat - as seen on the very first version, which Finn Juhl designed for the company Bovirke.

Finn Juhl designed the Reading Chair as both a dining room chair and as a reading chair. It is designed to be equally comfortable whether you choose to sit facing the front or the back. This might sound both odd and complicated, but thanks to Finn Juhl’s genius, the result was a simple, unpretentious, yet thoroughly well-designed and visually pleasing chair.

Authentic Nordic design

We exist to bring real and authentic Nordic style into British homes. Our collection of Danish furniture and lighting by world-renowned designers sit alongside an array of lifestyle items and home accessories from younger, emerging brands.

Design icons

Some of our pieces are almost a century old. The Nordic design output of the last hundred years (and the personalities of the designers) have become the retroactive benchmark used to critique contemporary Scandinavian design.
