The 53 Chair - Designed by Finn Juhl
Finn Juhl

First exhibited at The Cabinetmakers’ Guild Exhibition in 1953, The 53 Chair has since become one of Finn Juhl’s most sought-after pieces. The chair's sculptural expression is defined by its elegant and organic form, which seamlessly blends wood and upholstery to embrace the seated person with genuine comfort. With legs available in walnut or oak and a variety of textiles and leathers to choose from,

The 53 Chair is customizable to fit any interior. The 53 Chair is an extravagant and desirable piece of furniture that integrates the lightness and elegance of a wooden chair with the comfort of an upholstered corpus. Finn Juhl's design approach of separating the carrying elements from the carried is at play in The 53 Chair, achieved through sophisticated means that add lightness and elegance to the chair's expression. The rear legs protrude from the floor, completely free from upholstery, and in a single, unbroken motion they change direction to expand into an organically shaped armrest, almost animalistic in nature. The armrest wraps around the upholstery as if it is levitating, to arrive in a smooth and upwards point, begging to be touched. The delicate transitions from rounded to sharp elements stimulate the senses and highlight the beautiful wooden grain.

The Finn Juhl The 53 Chair is not only an exceptional piece of design but also a functional piece of furniture that fulfills practical needs. With its spacious seat, it invites people to sit and relax. It is well-suited as a free-standing piece for the living room of private residences, as well as for lounge areas in hotels and corporate settings. With its relaunch by the House of Finn Juhl, the chair is now available in American walnut or European oak and can be upholstered in a variety of fabrics or leathers, allowing it to fit into any interior. The optional cushion, which has hitherto only been seen in Finn Juhl's beautiful watercolor painting of the chair from 1953, is now available to order, adding an extra level of comfort and customization, please call our team to add this to your order.

The Finn Juhl The 53 Chair is a timeless piece of design that will elevate any space it inhabits.
