Finn Juhl Pelican Chair in Sheepskin | House Of Finn Juhl

The Pelican is a marvellous piece of design which beckons to every beholder. Its organic form is a good example of the way in which Finn Juhl has been inspired by modern ”free art”. Typical of Finn Juhl, the Pelican is very comfortable and manufactured according to the craftsmanship traditions with hand-sewn upholstery. The legs come in oak, walnut and black painted.

The Pelican in sheepskin takes Finn Juhl’s surrealist-inspired design to a new level of luxury, comfort and cool.

Over the years, sheepskin has become a popular natural material. It is now considered a classic choice in furniture design – taking its rightful place among textiles and leather. This can be explained by the fact that sheepskin enjoys many natural qualities, is a joy to look at and is wonderful to touch. At the same time, sheepskin is as if made for Finn Juhl’s organically shaped pieces, as these underline the natural softness of the material.

Careful selection makes it possible to achieve a unique product, which is exceptionally well suited for furniture upholstery. No two sheepskins are exactly alike. Therefore, each and every skin is carefully examined before the processing commences. Each hide is handled manually to avoid compromising the structure and density of the wool. Sheepskin is extremely durable and does not attract dust or dirt. It is also easy to maintain and clean. Furthermore, the sheepskin regulates temperature in a natural manner. This makes it exceedingly comfortable to sit in as the wool will keep you warm in cold weather and cool in warm weather.

The quality-conscious suppliers of sheepskin to House of Finn Juhl manage to combine traditional craftsmanship with environmentally friendly methods of processing. This enables them to preserve the natural qualities of the sheepskin while achieving unparalleled quality. To ensure an ethically correct way of raising sheep our suppliers are in close contact with the animal farmers and conduct regular visits. The raw material, which serves as the basis for production, is sourced from a Merino-hybrid from Australia and New Zealand.
