House of Finn Juhl /  Finn Juhl & onecollection
One of my favorite Finn Juhl furniture is the 45 chair.
Today many of the Finn Juhl classics are made by Onecollection A/S, a company owned by the holding company Hansen & Sørensen ApS, which was founded in 1990 by Ivan Hansen and Henrik Sørensen in Denmark.

In 2000, Onecollection acquired the exclusive rights to produce Finn Juhl’s iconic furniture from the 1940’s and 50’s. Since then, the company has re-launched a comprehensive range of Juhl’s designs.

Today the great House of Finn Juhl collection includes more than 40 original Finn Juhl classics.

Bucket list - Your to-do list

A list of things to do before you die. Comes from the term "kicked the bucket".

Have you made a “bucket list”? What you want to do (places to go, people to meet, things to do) before you die ("kick the bucket")
It can be long or short, it can simple or complex, I don’t think it matters. Mine is pretty simple. Places or stuff I want to do.

Making a to-do list of what you really want to achieve, see, do, before you «kick the bucket» might help you to re-energize in a busy daily life or keep motivated in spite of the challenges along the way to do what’s on your list. We only live once, remember to enjoy life.
