If you’ve been following my Ultimate Wish List posts, you know that these are things I have no room or need for but must ultimately have one day. Item 5 on the list is the Finn Juhl Poet (or Poeten) sofa. This icon of Danish modern furniture was designed back in 1941 for Finn Juhl’s own home:

and I just love its slightly odd shape and those legs.

Remember it in Vanessa Bruno’s apartment:

Yup, still loving that apartment.

And the beauty of the Poet is it comes in so many different colors and color combinations.

I don’t know how I would ever choose but I guess we’ll cross that bridge when we get to it!
