The Pelican Chair Returns in Sheepskin from Gotland
As autumn turns into winter, Finn Juhl's characteristic Pelican Chair returns with upholstery in sheepskin from the Swedish island of Gotland. The upholstery adds an individual and unique expression as the natural warmth of the sheepskin emphasizes the organic shape of the sculptural Pelican Chair. The supply of sheepskin from Gotland is seasonal and therefore the quantity for sale is limited. Please reach out to one of our trusted retailers for more information.
Our Showroom in Central Copenhagen
The building which houses the House of Finn Juhl showroom is nothing short of history. Since 1879, it has been the home of music trading and publishing in Copenhagen. Through five generations, the Wilhelm Hansen family has run a music publishing house, note printing business and a sheet music shop from here. The Wilhelm Hansen Music Publishers were the biggest in all of Scandinavia and grew to become synonymous with the treasure of Danish music. Here, all of the greatest artists were gathered under one roof.

Finn Juhl designed furniture with the human body in mind. This characteristic made him stand out from his midcentury peers in Denmark and Scandinavia alike. Rather than limiting himself to thinking in terms of practical construction, Finn Juhl adopted the mindset of a sculptor when shaping furniture.
