Product description

Modern Scandinavian homes are enviably relaxed and welcoming, filled with furniture and objects that are practical, functional, and beautiful. For many people, Scandinavian style conjures up images of pale blonde wood and pared-down,clutterfree interiors. In reality, it's far from minimal. Scandinavian Modern introduces the most important designers and their work and explores some of the most interesting homes in Scandinavia. The first section, Elements, takes a lively look at Scandinavian design in the context of materials: wood, glass, textiles, ceramics, and so on. The second section, Living, offers a visual survey of 12 outstanding homes in Denmark, Sweden and Finland, from modern country houses to sophisticated city-centre apartments.The accompanying text provides a fascinating insight into each home, describing its design and evolution. Many of the homes featured are those of celebrated twentieth-century Scandinavian designers, such as the Dane Poul Kjaerholm or Finnish architect and designer Eero Aarnio.
