Finn Juhl was something of the enfant terrible of Danish design. Though his pieces are much adored and coveted today, during their initial release on the market, they caused a certain amount of controversy. When he presented his now iconic Pelican Chair at the 1939 Carpenter's Guild Exhibition, there was opprobrium. Perhaps it was the fact that he was self-taught in furniture design (he studied architecture) that made his designs so original and contrasting to his contemporaries. They were, however, rapturously received in America with Juhl becoming a feature of MoMA's Good Design exhibitions and presenting an interior scheme for their landmark Arts of Denmark exhibition. Indeed, in the US magazine Interiors, one reporter asked in 1950, 'Baby where have you been all my life?'
