READING CHAIR

In 1953, Finn Juhl designed a simple and elegant dining chair for the furniture manufacturer Bovirke, which is as suitable for private homes as for hotels, restaurants and conference facilities.

ABOUT THE READING CHAIR

Juhl designed his Reading Chair as both a dining chair and a reading chair, which is 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 thought through and visually pleasing chair. 

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