    DescriptionFor serious furniture collectors, Danish is more than a pastry-it's an art form. Twentieth century Danish furniture design is simple and clean., mixes well with other design styles, and has an inherent value and history beyond its beauty. In Modern Danish, Andrew Hollingsworth explores the history of Danish design, from the earliest cabinetmakers' guilds in the 1770s through the impact of two world wars, and its evolution into the twentieth century. The book includes photographic surveys of Danish Modern furniture in homes across the Unites States; a market guide with tips, facts and resources that includes discussions of veneer vs. solid wood, places to find Danish Modern furniture, and a guide to caring for it; and an extensive resource section. Andrew Hollingsworth first started collecting Danish Modern furniture fifteen years ago while living in Europe. Passion for the field led to the founding of his eponymous gallery in 2002 specializing in twentieth-century Scandinavian and contemporary European design. Since that time he has participated in many of the nation's leading antique and design shows, has made TV appearances and has been the subject of numerous press articles, including a feature story on the cover of Metropolitan Home in October 2004.

    Danish furniture from the mid-twentieth century, while modern in line and scale, transcends time in a way that makes it work in today's interiors. From 1930 through 1970, Danish furniture designers and makers infused the best of historical furniture design in an understated, matter-of-fact way reflective of their cultural identity and craftsman traditions. The result was a prolific renaissance of style, quality, and sophistication. Danish Modern highlights the birth and growth of Danish Modern furniture design and illustrates, through stunning color photographs, how seamlessly it fits into contemporary interiors. Learn about the style's defining features, historical influences, and most important designers and cabinetmakers, such as Kaare Klint, Hans Wegner, Finn Juhl, A. J. Iversen, Ole Wanscher, Borge Mogensen, Frits Henningsen, and others. A market guide and resource section provide information on locating, purchasing, and caring for Danish Modern furniture, giving you all the information you need for becoming knowledgeable about this timeless style and integrating it into your own home. Andrew Hollingsworth first started collecting Danish Modern furniture fifteen years ago while living in Europe. Passion for the field led to the founding of his eponymous gallery in 2002, specializing in twentieth-century Scandinavian and contemporary European design. Since that time he has participated in many of the nation's leading antique and design shows, has made TV appearances, and has been featured in Metropolitan Home, Architectural Digest, Art & Antiques, Elle Decor, House Beautiful, the Chicago Tribune, the New York Times, and more.
