One Collection Reintroduces Baker & Wall Sofas by Finn Juhl

We're excited to share the news! Two sofas by celebrated designer Finn Juhl will be reintroduced to the market by Danish company OneCollection. Both designs are from the early 1950s and are great examples of Juhl's style.

1 - 3 The Baker sofa is built from upholstered pieces mounted to a walnut or teak frame. Originally designed for Baker Furniture in 1951. On the original plans for the Baker sofa, Finn Juhl wrote: "This sofa tries to solve different problems. Good support for the small of your back in normal position, relaxed position with your feet up in both corners, and even then rest for your elbows, as well as for your head — this effectuated by the dividing up of the back in two parts — good rest!"

4 - 5 The Wall sofa is unique in that it is asymmetrical and designed to be mounted to a wall for support. It was designed in 1950 for The Nordenfjeldske Kunstindustrimuseum— Norway's National Museum of Decorative Arts in Trondheim, Norway.
