Brand: House of Finn Juhl

Designer: Finn Juhl

The iconic Chieftain Chair is one of Finn Juhl’s absolute masterpieces, representing the peak of his career as a furniture designer. At its introduction in 1949, the chair marked a renewal of the Danish furniture design tradition. Today, it is perceived as one of the most important exponents of the Danish Modern movement in the US during the 1950s. For this reason, Finn Juhl is often considered the father of Danish Modern.

Inspired by modern art, the Chieftain Chair with its organic shapes, liberated itself from traditional Danish furniture design and strict functionalism in both shape, construction and materials. The chair is probably the most well-known piece of all of his chairs and a powerful design, which not only dominates in size and extravagance but also needs a lot of space around it to do itself justice. It is in true and proper fashion a chieftain. It has, with good reason, been called an icon of Danish furniture design.

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.
