Restaurant Palægade in Copenhagen is passionate about indulgent versions of the classic, Danish open-faced sandwiches, which are served for lunch. In the evening, the restaurant focuses on a sublime Danish & French experience. The restaurant opened in 2017 and is viewed as a cornerstone of the Copenhagen lunch scene. Restaurant Palægade has been rebuilt due to a fire that ravaged the premises in March 2020. The freshly rebuilt restaurant has yet again been filled with classic, handpicked pieces by Finn Juhl.
The luxurious masculine interior and calm environment instantly makes you feel that the people working here know exactly what they are doing. The restraurant is decorated with classic, handpicked pieces by Finn Juhl which include the Reading Chair, the classic Panel System and the colourful Circle Rug. Palægade's ambitions are high, and the team aims to be the best lunch restaurant in Copenhagen.
The Reading Chair at Restaurant Palægade
Discover more about the Reading Chair that is used as a dining chair at Restaurant Palægade. In 1953, Finn Juhl designed this simple, unpretentious, yet thoroughly well-designed and visually pleasing Reading Chair. The chair is perfectly fit for private homes, hotels, restaurants and conference facilities alike. The Reading Chair is manufactured in solid oak with a back piece in plywood of oak and walnut with an outer layer in walnut or in a fully black painted version. The seat is upholstered in either textile or leather. The chair is also available in a version with a veneered seat.
The Circle Rug at Restaurant Palægade
Finn Juhl's Circle Rug in the colour 'Orange/Green' is used as a stunning decorative feature hanging on the wall of Restaurant Palægade. In 1963, Finn Juhl designed a series of characteristic circular patterns for the Danish carpet manufacturer, Vittrup. The simple circular pattern is enhanced by a striking use of colour, creating a unique design that embodies the trends and vibrancy of the era of the ‘Swining Sixties’. The rugs are produced in two sizes and come in four different colour combinations: 'Grey/Black', 'Orange/Green', 'Blue/Navy' and 'Beige/Nature'. The carpets are hand-tufted in a wonderfully dense 100% looped wool.
