The One Who Introduced Danish Modern To Us

The One Who Introduced Danish Modern To Us

 

If one person can be credited with igniting the Scandinavian design movement that swept like wildfire across the United States in the 1950s and ’60s, it is Finn Juhl.

“A chair is not just a product of decorative art in a space, it is a form and a space in itself.”
-Finn Juhl

Few Americans had seen the work being produced by a group of Nordic talents whose form of modernism was more down-to-earth and approachable than that of their predecessors from Germany’s Bauhaus school.

Being commissioned to furnish one of the larger delegates rooms at the UN building in New York, and being represented at the Museum of Modern Art, made him well known outside of Denmark early on.

His many contacts led to collaboration with the American furniture industry making his furniture among the first to make Danish Modern an international phenomenon. Today, Finn Juhl’s chairs and furniture collection are seen in private and public places, as well as museums, around the world. 

Once you experience a Finn Juhl masterpiece, you’ll know exactly why he’s always referred to as a ‘sculptor.’ His furniture gives all mid century modern living rooms a touch of elegance, beauty and simplicity.

Still, he never forgot its purpose. “Furniture is not created just to be looked at,” he once said. "People should be able to use a piece of furniture."

At Eternity Modern, we pay tribute to one of the most influential design artists of all time. Our master craftsmen have recreated some of his most iconic mid century modern furniture designs. The Pelican Chair is a great piece to pair up with a mid century modern coffee table.

There’s of course, our special modern touch to it!
