It is shocking to think of Finn Juhl designing this sculptural chair in 1940 – that was more than 70 years ago, and the Pelican Chair is still “out there” by today’s standards. With graceful curves that befriend the body and wrap the sitter in its embrace, the Pelican is true to Juhl’s idea that “a chair is not just a product of decorative art in a space, it is a form and a space in itself.” And while the influence of contemporary sculpture is clear, Juhl was quick to clarify that “furniture is furniture, not sculpture.” The upholstery is hand sewn onto the frame; some colors (see below) are finished with tufted buttons. This original is an authentic, fully licensed product of Onecollection, House of Finn Juhl™. Made in Denmark.

  • Colors with tufted buttons: grey with red cushion and red buttons; teal with light blue cushion and light blue buttons; and cream with leather sand cushion and leather sand buttons.
  • Colors without tufted buttons: tan with brown cushion (no buttons); charcoal with grey cushion (no buttons); plum with plum cushion (no buttons); cream with cream cushion (no buttons)
