June 1, 2019
The button tuft accent is such a sweet and subtle touch! Its perfect in combination with the shape of the backrest. I love this chair, it looks great, it is so worth it!

Should have went with the leather instead of the cotton fabric, I have a feeling it would have been a better upholstery for the design of my living room, not a huge deal but it being a custom order I didn't want to go through the process of returning and then ordering a different one

Scandinavian style especially anything from Finn Juhl is always remarkable and never fails to impress me, this was a great purchase for my living room

feminine shape and strong build
May 23, 2018
The curved form of this piece is exquisite, it has a feminine shape with a strong build which looks exceptional in my living room furnished with mostly rigid and bulkier designs

artistic but conventional
May 3, 2018
Backrest is such a beautiful and unique shape, it slightly resembles a heart but isn't overt which I love about many modern designs. They have an abstract and artistic beauty about them so I keep coming back to them - this chair happens to be my favorite furniture purchase in the past 3 years, surpassing in comfort and quality a few other items I've ordered from other places.

acquire about fabric swatches beforehand
May 3, 2018
Trouble with upholstery as I did not attain color samples / fabric swatches beforehand and took my chances on a fabric color I thought was the same as another item I ordered from this site. It turns out that unless it's made by the same maker or manufacturer the colors can vary from item to item even if the colors share similar names - my mistake but I wanted to put that out there for other buyers.

eye-catching in golden yellow
February 6, 2018
Special ordered in golden yellow upholstery and walnut frame - the yellow gives it a up-to-date, contemporary feel while the design itself has a more transitional look, it's really a great piece, comfortable as well as eye-catching
