    POET SOFAS BY FINN JUHL AT DUBLIN AUCTION

    Sunday, April 26th, 2015
    A rare pair of Poet sofas by Danish designer Finn Juhl (1911-1989) – whose house north of Copenhagen marked the very beginning of open plan living – come up at de Veres design and art auction at Kildare St., Dublin on April 28. The sofas, regarded as a triumph of early Danish design, are from a private Irish collection.  He designed the sofas for the Juhl house at Charlottenlund north of Copenhagen.  The house was revolutionary and offered garden views from every room.  The sofas are estimated at 3,000-5,000.
    They were acquired in Copenhagen in 1950 by the vendors parents, who visited Denmark and Sweden with Ivan and Myrtle Allen.  The auction is on view today, tomorrow and Monday. Another lot is a pair of Progetti open armchairs by Giorgetti  (1,400-1,800).  The sale offers 20th century design furniture and about 40 lots of contemporary Irish art.
