Finn Juhl was a pioneering figure within the Danish Modern movement of the 1940s and is known to have been a major influence in the introduction of Danish furniture design to America. His collaboration with master cabinetmaker Niels Vodder in 1937 saw the beginning of an exploration and deviation from conventional forms. Their impressive show at the 1945 Cabinetmakers’ Guild exhibition represented their development of expressive and sculptural furniture. One such item example is the ‘Model 45’ armchair (1945), which broke from tradition by freeing the upholstered areas from the wood frame.
The ‘Diplomat’ armchair, manufactured by France & Sons in 1952, was designed seven years later. The beautiful teak frame is in great condition, with original upholstered free cushions. This piece has a manufacturing label to validate authenticity. Price includes reupholstery.
