The word ‘Scandinavian’ is regularly seen and used on this site and for good reason. Scandinavian design is so effortlessly cool and stylish. If you want to know just why, you might want to invest in Scandinavian Home: A Comprehensive Guide to Mid-Century Modern Scandinavian Designers by Elizabeth Wilhide.
Published by Quadrille, this 192-page book showcases Scandinavian design of the 1950s and looks at its enduring appeal as the decades have passed. Architects and designers from Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Finland transformed the way we designed homes and furnished homes. In fact it probably defined living in the modern era.
The book is a collector’s guide to classic products than have come out of the region, but also offers an insight into modern homes that use the Scandinavian aesthetic and offers advice on how to put together a Scandinavian ‘look’ using the design trademarks of the movement.
Basically, if you want to know about the subject, this is pretty much the pace to start. The book is published on 14th January but is available to pre-order now, priced at £19.99.
