Juhl first exhibited the chair in 1949 at the Cabinetmakers’ Guild in Copenhagen, during which King Frederick IX (the maternal grandfather of the Crown Prince Frederick of Denmark) sat in the chair, causing a journalist to suggest calling it the “King’s Chair.” But Juhl preferred a different name and replied, “You had better call it a Chieftain’s Chair.”
There is something both tribal and elegant about the shape of its armrests and its padded back with protruding wooden corners. Its seat slopes floor-wards and its back reclines, making it an inviting and visually stunning.
