The Chieftain Footstool | Finn Juhl | 1953

The Chieftain Footstool | Finn Juhl | 1953

This footrest was made for the iconic Chieftain Chair, one of Finn Juhl’s absolute masterpieces. Today the Chieftain Chair is perceived as one of the most important exponents of the Danish Modern movement in the US during the 1950s. For this reason, Finn Juhl is often considered the father of Danish Modern. Like the Chieftain Chair, the Chieftain Footstool is manufactured in walnut or oak and upholstered in leather.

About the Chieftain Footstool

A Footstool to Match one of Finn Juhl's Absolute Masterpieces

This footstool was made for the iconic Chieftain Chair, one of Finn Juhl’s absolute masterpieces.

Today the Chieftain is perceived as one of the most important exponents of the Danish Modern movement in the US during the 1950s. For this reason, Finn Juhl is often considered the father of Danish Modern.

Finn Juhl's Inspiration

Inspired by Modern Art

Inspired by modern art, the Chieftain Chair with its organic shapes, liberated itself from traditional Danish furniture design and strict functionalism in both shape, construction and materials.

Both the Chieftain Chair, Sofa and Footstool are manufactured in walnut or oak and are upholstered in leather.
