Reading Chair

By House of Finn Juhl

In 1953, Finn Juhl designed this simple yet elegant dining chair for the furniture manufacturer Bovirke, which we have relaunched under the name the Reading Chair. This chair is perfectly fit for private homes, hotels, restaurants and conference facilities alike.

Finn 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 front or the back. This might sound both odd and complicated, but thanks to Finn Juhl’s genius, the result was a simple, unpretentious, yet thoroughly well-designed and visually pleasing chair.  

Manufactured in oak, it features a back piece of oak and walnut or comes in a fully black painted version. The seat can be upholstered in either textile or leather. Additionally, a version of the chair with a veneered seat is also available.
