Nyhavn Desk

During his career, Finn Juhl designed a series of tables with barely-there legs. The effect of this was to introduce a sense of lightness to a once clunky bit of furniture — all while retaining their distinct character and charm. The most famous is the Nyhavn Desk, designed exclusively for his creative headquarters in Copenhagen, and a staple of every stylish Scandi home since.

Product Description

The Nyhavn Desk is the ultimate interior power play. Thanks to its clean lines and plush finishes, it appears both visually light yet sculptural. Originally designed in 1945 it is the perfect example of Nordic flair. The magic is complete when paired with a matching drawer unit — a generous flourish that allows aesthetes to introduce colour into contemporary schemes.

Materials & Finishes

Furniture that looks good from every angle. That's the Chaplins Promise. Delve into the details, here...

Today the Nyhavn Desk is manufactured in different sizes and available with a veneered table top in oak, walnut, Oregon pine or black linoleum, with matching wooden toes on burnished steel legs. For painted steel leg options, we kindly ask that you contact the showroom.

The desk can be further customised with a tray unit with three drawers in a range of warm or cold hues. The tray unit is mounted with brackets, to further emphasise the floating lightness of the table.
