Every year, three leading Danish home interior magazines – Bo Bedre, Boligmagasinet and Costume Living – nominate a number of furniture items and other design products for the home for awards in different categories.
One of the furniture nominees in the category “Comeback of the Year” is designer Finn Juhl’s dining chair from 1953, also known as the Reading Chair.
The horizontal surface of the backrest provides the chair with more sitting positions than the usual – such as the Danish design critic Henrik Wivel explains: “Everyone knows about the desire to sit in a chair backwards with your legs spread and your arms on the backrest. Finn Juhl knew about this desire and designed a chair specifically for this purpose with a small frame to put the arms on, so it was comfortable, and the position could be taken for long – and with just desire. ”
The Reading Chair is constructed with an oak frame, while the backrest and the top are available in teak or walnut. The chair is also available in a version with a black-stained frame. The seat can be upholstered with fabric or leather.
