Hi guys, I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I am slowly cracking into a busy week after a pleasant and long weekend spent in the country side. I gave you all a sneak peek of this couch in my Instagram stories, and you went mad, it’s definitely a dream couch for many people.
The two-seater is of course the renowned Poet sofa by Finn Juhl that first saw the light of day at the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers’ Guild Exhibition in 1941. Since 2001 the sofa has been in production with House of Finn Juhl, but now it got an update with new tapered legs and with the new comeback they are manufacturing 50 pieces in Skandilock Sheepskin (25 in Moonlight color and 25 in Sahara color).
The legs of the Poet Sofa were originally round, just like the legs of the Pelican Chair. Over the years House of Finn Juhl has experienced a great demand for tapered legs, which are also seen on the Poet Sofa in Finn Juhl’s own living room, in his house north of Copenhagen.
OK, this sofa might not be the one you take endless naps in, but it definitely wins on looks and softness. Sitting on this sofa takes me straight to the clouds and I totally get why a Danish cartoonist in 1959 depicted the exact sofa as the place where a young poet would withdraw to contemplate the complexities of life, hence its name btw.

Paid partnership with House of Finn Juhl. I borrowed the sofa for the purposes of the shoot. Thoughts and opinions are 100% my own. Thanks for supporting collaborations that I am excited about and that have kept Bungalow5’s doors open.
