About the Cocktail Table

The Extravagant Cocktail Parties

The economy was booming in the US during the 1950s. Hollywood and the new upper class had made cocktail parties immensely popular and Finn Juhl was readily impressed by this newfound American extravagance, which he got to experience through his new and influential American friends.

The elegant, three-legged coffee table is a further development of his earlier eye-shaped table, but as the expression goes, "Everything has to be bigger in America". Despite its size, and thanks to its organic shape, with no sharp corners, the table allows for free movement around it.
