Finn Juhl, a Danish architect born in 1912, started his own practice in 1945 where he specialized in designing both interiors and furniture. His works were of high standard and technologically advanced for the time. He was also known for working together with designer Niels Vodder resulting in well-known works such as the Chieftain and Pelican Chair.
Our “Spade” armchair (named after the typical armrest design) originates from the early 1950s when France & Son was still named France & Daverkosen, and has been re-upholstered in exclusive dark blue mohair:
The mohair has a beautiful sheen, and due to its fabric qualities, it will keep its luxury appearance without pilling, wrinkling or showing signs of use for years to come.
Condition: Overall good, some signs of use on the wood frame. Re-upholstered.
