In 1954 France & Daverkosen accounted for 60% of all Danish furniture exports and the factory employed 350 people at its peak. In 1957, the company changed its name to France & Son, when his son James France joined the company. In 1966 the company was sold to Poul Cadovius.
The FJ 136, or the France Chair as it is also known, was designed for the American market in the late 1950s and was originally delivered flat-packed, which was France’s business idea and the main driver for his phenomenal success on the American market.
Onecollection has chosen to relaunch this beautiful Finn Juhl chair from 1958.
