Finn Juhl’s Cocktail Table was designed for Baker Furniture in the United States to match the sculptural Baker Sofa.
The economy was booming and prosperity on the rise in the US during the 1950s. Hollywood and the new upper class had made cocktail parties immensely popular and Finn Juhl was readily impressed by this newfound American extravagance, which he got to experience through his new and influential American friends.
The elegant three-legged coffee table is a further development of his earlier eye shaped tables, but as we know, everything had to be bigger and 'better' in America. Despite its size, thanks to its organic shape with no sharp corners, the table allows for free movement around it.
The Cocktail Table is light and elegant with refined design detail. The table is manufactured in walnut or oak with a veneered or white glossy table top.
