Description from Design Within Reach
Finn Juhl designed the Poet Sofa (1941) for use in his own home, located in Charlottenlund, a rural area north of Copenhagen. Today, the Juhl house which is an early example of open-plan design and offers views to its garden from every room is part of the Ordrupgaard Museum. Being connected to the landscape was something that Juhl both lived and practiced, and the influence is notable in the organic forms of his furniture. Being a true sensualist, Juhl created his furniture to be comfortable, made with the best craftsmanship traditions and showing an appreciation of materials. This original is an authentic, fully licensed product of Onecollection, House of Finn Juhl. Made in Denmark.
