The Pelican Chair was designed by Danish master Finn Juhl, and is a perfect example of how the designer took much of his inspiration from ‘free art’. With its fluid and organic shape, which still remains modern in its design today, it is hard to believe that it was back in 1940 when this armchair was first introduced.

The Full Story

Juhl believed that a chair should be a “form and space in itself”, and has achieved this with the Pelican Chair thanks to its almost human shape; its curves were designed to embrace the entire body in a luxurious level of comfort. To create its sculptural form, Juhl took inspiration from artists such as Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth, but blended this artistry with a high level of comfort that was necessary for commercial success.

At the time of its design, the Pelican Chair was ridiculed by Juhl’s contemporaries, but it soon became incredibly popular outside of Denmark.

The chair features a seat that slants backwards for the ultimate in relaxation, while the oversized back and curved arms provide both support and shelter for the user. The four chunky wooden legs add to the boldness of the Pelican chair, and provide plenty of sturdiness and support too.

The Pelican Chair is manufactured using traditional techniques, with the upholstery - available in a wide variety of different colours - hand sewn to the frame. The thick and rounded legs can be chosen in any of a range of different types of wood, while the chair itself may be chosen either with tufted buttons or without.

The perfect easy chair for any contemporary living space, there is no denying that Finn Juhl’s Pelican Chair will create a true statement in any home, combining not just aesthetic appeal, but also the ultimate in comfort.
