Finn Juhl Chieftains Chair Reproduction


The sculptural form of the Chieftains Chair is what makes it one of Danish designer Finn Juhl’s stand-out pieces.

Juhl first exhibited the chair in 1949 at the Cabinetmakers’ Guild in Copenhagen, during which King Frederick IX (the maternal grandfather of the Crown Prince Frederick of Denmark) sat in the chair, causing a journalist to suggest calling it the “King’s Chair.” But Juhl preferred a different name and replied, “You had better call it a Chieftain’s Chair.”
