We got *NEWS* ✨
We are relaunching the Poet Sofa with Tapered Legs and we celebrate the comeback by manufacturing 50 Poet Sofas in Skandilock Sheepskin!
When House of Finn Juhl relaunched the small Poet sofa in 2001, some people asked why it was presented with rounded legs rather than the tapered legs. When working with the legacy of one of the greatest designers, these questions are far from rare. If you go through the archives of Finn Juhl's drawings, while studying the original, psychical furniture pieces, one will quickly discover that the details of Finn Juhl's furniture often developed over time. In short, "something" often happened as a drawing was transformed into a piece of furniture ⚡️ The cabinetmakers who worked with Finn Juhl usually imprinted their own style on the furniture as well. Therefore, it is rather common to see differences in details, depending on who manufactured Finn Juhl's furniture at a given time period 👌
The legs of the Poet Sofa were originally round, just like the legs of the Pelican Chair. Over the years House of Finn Juhl has experienced a great demand for tapered legs, which are also seen on the Poet Sofa in Finn Juhl's own living room, in his house north of Copenhagen. This particular sofa, however, is not one of the earliest versions of the Poet Sofa, but was manufactured during the 50s in a period where the Poet Sofa was retailed with tapered legs, as this was in style ☀️ Read even more on our website: www.finnjuhl.com
