Stellar chairs go beyond simple seating and become a decorative piece of three-dimensional art. Particularly if contemporary versions use only the finest manufacturing processes and materials.

This is certainly the case for the Chieftain Chair by Finn Juhl, a statement piece of Scandinavian furniture.

The Full Story

With a back design reminiscent of heraldic shields, the Chieftain nobly carries a merger of different fluid forms, harnessed to a linear core. This strong, supportive chair also incorporates an aesthetically pleasing blend of leather and wood.

Internationally acclaimed Danish designer and architect Finn Juhl created the Chieftain chair in 1949. It is the epitome of the “Danish design” movement that Juhl greatly influenced. Many would argue that it is the finest example of his genius.

For Juhl, furniture should be organic in shape, with soft lines and quality wood to reflect this. He also believed in using the history of art, architecture, and society, as well as contemporary trends, as inspiration. When he first exhibited Chieftain chair, Juhl used images of weapons from anthropological studies as a backdrop.

For all its design brilliance, the Chieftain Chair does not compromise on comfort. As with many Finn Juhl pieces, the floating back and seat are ergonomically supportive and the luxury upholstering is pleasurably tactile.

We offer the Chieftain chair in a choice of wood types - walnut, ash and oak – and finishes, to add to its inherent versatility. This is seating for contemporary lounges, boardrooms or other rooms when good looks need to be combined with effortless functionality.
