In the store: Finn Juhl coffee table

My SIL found this beautiful Finn Juhl coffee table on a buying trip out of state not long ago. Much to our dismay, it was damaged on the trip home, despite very careful blanketing and tying. We were heartsick, doubting that it could be repaired. All was not lost, however, because Hank Tosh of Toshmahal made it look showroom-new again. The piece is part of the 500 Series designed by Juhl in 1958 for France & Søn.

France & Søn, one of Denmark's finest furniture manufacturers, was originally called France & Daverkosen. The company name was changed to France & Søn when Julian France joined the business. The company was sold to Poul Cadovius in 1964, and its name was changed to CADO 
Møbelfabrik. Finn Juhl designed for all three incarnations of the company.


  1. Even the logo has style. I LOVE the concept of doing something with that level of pride and art.

  2. @DearHelenHartman: I'm always impressed when a design that simple can convey so much elegance.
