Butterfly Table

The Butterfly Table, designed by Finn Juhl in 1949, is a very rare table. It was practically never produced at its time of creation. The Butterfly Table was displayed alongside the iconic Chieftain Chair, Chieftain Sofa and Egyptian Chair during the famous 1949 Guild Exhibition on behalf of cabinetmaker Niels Vodder.

About the Butterfly Table

The three-legged and organically shaped coffee table is a very typical Finn Juhl design and stands as a testament to detailed beauty and craftsmanship.

The very unconventional table looks deceptively delicate and is today produced as the original in solid teak with a leaf in Oregon pine or entirely in walnut. Both variants come with a circular brass inlay.
