Finn Juhl Pair of Chieftain Chairs by Baker

About the Item

Finn Juhl's 1949 masterpiece, the chieftain chair, employs iconography of tribal forms and Juhl’s innovative approach to design which accentuates the separation of the seat, back, and frame imparting a “floating appearance”. The distinctive “horns’ at the top corners reference a historic Egyptian chair design. This pair, from a 1997 edition by Baker Furniture have frames of walnut and are upholstered in a very light taupe colored leather.
