Finn Juhl, the master of Danish Modern, originally designed the iconic Chieftain Chair in oiled walnut and black leather in 1949.

Exuding grandeur, the Chieftain Chair’s shape was inspired by symbols of weaponry used on foreign shores. The oiled walnut frame takes on the shape of bows and arrows, whilst it’s shield-like back and comfortable low seat are flanked by armrests that resemble the shape of saddles. Upholstered in full-grain, vacuum-tanned, smooth aniline black Nevada leather from south German cattle hides, the chair’s leather is firm but supple with an exceptional grain.

Famed for its exceptional comfort, the large Chieftain Chair was designed to offer a wide array of seating positions. With armrests perfectly suited for lounging and a seat large enough to curl up on, this chair is certain to bring maximum comfort to any space.

The first Danish furniture designer to achieve international recognition, Finn Juhl is seen by many as the master of Danish Modern. A self-taught designer, he originally studied to become an architect but worked with the mindset of a sculptor when creating his designs. Rather than thinking in terms of practicality, Finn Juhl broke free from the constraints of conventional working methods to create truly innovative designs.
