ABOUT THE READING CHAIR

Juhl designed the Reading Chair as both a dining room chair and as a reading chair. It is designed to be equally comfortable whether you choose to sit facing the back or the front. This might sound both odd and complicated, but thanks to Juhl’s genius, the result was a simple, unpretentious, yet thoroughly well designed and visually pleasing chair. 

The Reading Chair is manufactured in oak with a backside of either walnut or teak. The seat is upholstered with either fabric or leather. The chair is also available in black stain.
