The house consists of two blocks standing at right-angles to each other. In one block is a large living room and a small study, while the second block houses the kitchen, dining room, bedrooms and bathroom. The two blocks are joined by an entrance hall which opens to the garden. The house is an early example of open-plan, with a characteristic view through its rooms. Although each room has its own clear function, it is always possible to look from one room to the next as you walk through the house and there is always a view of the garden.

The entrance to the house is painted bright blue and contrasts the excess white exteriors facing Kratvænget 15 in Ordrup, Denmark.


Entering the hall you can choose between going straight forward and directly into the living rooms or turning left into Finn Juhl’s study. To the right of the entrance you can see the painting Oiseau des forĂŞts, 1958 by George Braque.


In Finn Juhl’s study you can, amongst others, experience the black leather chair Office Chair, 1965 and Finn Juhl’s own artwork To krukker, 1934, located on the shelf above the desk.


If you go straight through the hallway, you arrive at the garden room. In this place, you can see the Japan Chair from 1958. This chair is one of Finn Juhl ‘s first industrially produced furniture pieces. To the right of the Japan Chair you can see the beautiful glass Vitrine from 1953. The furniture arrangement is nicely framed by a carpet made by the textile artist Anna Thommesen.


Turning left from the garden room you arrive at the central room of the house, with bright large windows on one side and a fireplace on the other. Here in the middle of the house you can find Finn Juhl’s most famous chair Høvdingestolen, 1949. Opposite Høvdingestolen you can see the sofa named the Poet from 1941. Above the Poet you can see the painting Portrait of Hanne Wilhelm Hansen, 1946 by Vilhelm Lundstrom. In the opposite corner you will find a small collection of Finn Juhl’s porcelain series from 1952.

In this corner room, you can see the FJ 44 chair, also known as the Bone Chair from 1944, which stands at the end of the table from 1968. In the same furniture group are two FJ 45 chairs. Both the FJ 44 and the FJ 45 chairs are considered amongst Finn Juhl’s absolute masterpieces and produced by cabinetmaker Niels Vodder for the Cabinetmakers’ Guild exhibitions. On the living room table Finn Juhl’s wooden bowls are displayed and on the wall above the built-in sofa you can see the painting Opstilling, 1938 by Vilhelm Lundstrom .


Ascending the stairs from the garden room, you will arrive at the dining room. Here, you can see The Egyptian Chair and Judasbordet from 1949. On the bright yellow walls in the dining room the paintings, Nattergalen, 1945 , Nattergalen, 1944 by Richard Mogensen and Syttakromba by Asger Jorn, 1949, are displayed.
