Growing up in a home with Danish design I have always had a love for the classic furniture that lasts a lifetime and fits in, in any type of home. With a focus on craftsmanship, material and design Finn Juhl has created just such type of furniture. Furniture you don’t buy because of the latest trends, but because you want a solid piece of design that can tell a story about your everyday life, the day you decide to pass it on.
Last week I visited this beautiful showroom of Onecollection that has the exclusive rights to produce Finn Juhl’s iconic furniture from the 1940’s and 50’s. Since then, the company has re-launched a comprehensive range of Juhl’s designs. Along with the well-known Finn Juhl classics, Onecollection manufactures contemporary furniture of a very high quality.
Even though Finn Juhl’s furniture is designed back in the 1940’s I still find his design quite modern. My home is contemporary with a focus on minimalism, many of his furniture would fit perfectly into my home like the iconic Pelican chair that is designed in various colours and combinations.
One of my favorite designs is the 57 Sofa. A very elegant sofa with a unique and timeless design language. Also one of the very first of Finn Juhl’s design that Onecollection re-launched. I could see this in a nice creamy colour scale fit like a glove in my livingroom. See more of Finn Juhl’s designs here.
