Details: The original design was created in 1946 by Finn Juhl for use in his own home in Charlottenlund, Netherlands. The home is now part of a museum and the Poet Sofa considered a work of modernism art. The frame of the poet sofa curves with artistic intent. Recapturing the organic curves and angles of the original is not a simple undertaking. The whimsical use of coordinating and contrasting fabric color combinations on the body, the seat and buttons, reiterates the artistic flair of the piece. Kardiel respectfully adheres to responsible standards when reproducing original designs. Details such as frame construction, dimensions overall and within, angles, seam finish, pleats, tufting, fabric selection.

This fabric is sturdy and features a smooth overall appearance with a mottled color. About Cashmere Cashmere wool fiber is obtained from â€œCashmere goats.â€ Historically, fine-haired Cashmere goats have been called Capra hircus laniger, as if they were a subspecies of the domestic goat Capra Hircus. Cashmere goats produce a double fleece that consists of a fine, soft undercoat or under-down of hair mingled with a straighter and much coarser outer coating of hair called Guard Hair. For the fine under-down to be sold and processed further, it must be de-haired. De-hairing is a mechanical process that separates the coarse hairs from the fine hair. After this separating process the resulting premium â€œcashmereâ€ is ready to be dyed and converted into yarn. About the Original Designer Finn Juhl was born in Denmark in January of 1912, just before the outbreak of WWII. As a young boy, Finn Juhl did not wish to become a furniture design but rather had aspirations of becoming an art historian. His father, often described as having an authoritarian personality convinced Finn to become an architect instead. Finn studied architecture at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts from 1930-34. Finn began with cabinet designs of which were initially all limited in production to 80 or few individual units. Nearly all of these early cabinets would be reintroduced for production in later years. Finn Juhl's designs were a fresh take, complimenting modernism architecture and turning their backs on the traditionalist elements. Finn himself may have been ahead of his time. Many of his designs were not well received and he did not gain the notoriety of peers such as Hans Wegner and Borge Mogensen. Many of his designs were ahead of their time as well. One look at the Poet sofa and it is hard to believe it was produced in 1941. The Pelican chair received positive responses from the visionaries of the time but a significant portion were critical of the design. Finn Juhl passed in 1989. As time moves forward, more people are viewing his designs as a stroke of genius. Modern architecture is plentiful in cities around the world. While his designs were considered perhaps too cutting edge even for the newly forming modernist movement of his time, they express well today. His works are being re-introduced as masterpieces in varying reproduction qualities around the world.
