Finn Juhl's designs were met with great acclaim in America in the 1950s, and in-turn he was gradually influenced by aspects of American culture. During the boom years of the 1950s, Finn Juhl was impressed by the decadence of the the cocktail parties he would attend there, and in turn designed the Cocktail Bench as a suitable piece of furniture for such occasions.
The Cocktail Bench was released by Baker Furniture in the USA, who named it the 'Rectangular Cocktail Table'. Finn Juhl referred to it as simply 'bench' in his original designs, a name reflected in this reissue.
With solid wood construction in oak or walnut, the Cocktail bench is well suited to use as a sturdy side table for drinks trays or objects of decoration. Indeed, the curved lip on the top was originally designed to ensure glasses and trays would not fall to the floor.
