ABOUT THE READING CHAIR

Finn Juhl designed the Reading Chair as both a dining room chair and as a reading chair. It is designed to be equally comfortable whether you choose to sit facing the front or the back. This might sound both odd and complicated, but thanks to Finn Juhl’s genius, the result was a simple, unpretentious, yet thoroughly well-designed and visually pleasing chair.

The Reading Chair is manufactured in oak with a backrest in teak or walnut. The chair is also available in a black painted variant. The seat is upholstered with either fabric or leather.
