The Chieftain Chair is one of Finn Juhl’s absolute masterpieces, representing the peak of his career as a furniture designer. At its introduction in 1949, the chair marked a renewal of the Danish furniture design tradition and today it is perceived as one of the most important exponents of the Danish Modern movement in the US during the 1950s.
The chair is probably the most well known of all his chairs and a powerful design, which not only dominates in size and extravagance, but which also needs a lot of space around it to do itself justice. It has, with good reason, been called an icon of Danish furniture design.
