Finn Juhl's Source of Inspiration

The American Inspiration

Finn Juhl experienced an international breakthrough in the USA during the early 1950s. He subsequently designed a range of furniture with steel pipe frames, inspired by the American designers he had come across. The Table Bench was part of the range of furniture from this period and was also included in the large-scale exhibition called Design in Scandinavia. The exhibition, which was curated by Finn Juhl himself, travelled across 22 cities in North America between 1954 and 1957 and was attended by approximately 650,000 visitors.

As a result of this exposure and because of its light, elegant and timeless design, the Table Bench has always been a popular piece that has achieved extremely high prices at auctions worldwide.

The Characteristics of The Table Bench

A Timeless and Versatile Piece

The Table Bench is a unique, versatile piece that can serve an array of purposes in the home. The Table Bench is defined by an elegant, sophisticated design that remains truly timeless. The multipurpose piece embodies a stylish union of contrasting materials and textures. Whether used in a living room as a table to display books and decorative art pieces or accessorized with a cushion to create a comfortable place to sit in a hallway or bedroom, the Table Bench is one of Finn Juhl’s most popular pieces. The Table Bench can be ordered with two solid brass strips flanking the top of the bench which keep the cushion in place. By choosing the foldable cushion a place for personal objects is defined next to the seating area.
