Finn Juhl's Original Handmade Home

Design Milk

Finn Juhl (30 January 1912 - 17 May 1989) was one of the founders of the Danish design movement and introduced "Danish Modern" to the United States. His 2,200 square foot home has been preserved and contains his collection of furnishings and art, all acquired over his lifetime. The striking thing about this home is that, though it is clearly a testament to the modern aesthetic, it feels entirely liveable and warm.

Design Milk got an exclusive, in-depth tour of Finn Juhl's home in Ordrup, Denmark (just outside Copenhagen). Finn designed, built and decorated the house, Kratvaenget 15, in 1941-42 with his first wife, Inge-Marie Skaarup. He lived there until his death in 1989. Since that time, the 2,200 square foot house and its furnishings have been restored to the condition believed to be accurate to when Juhl was alive.
