In the middle of the twentieth century, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Finland, four countries with a total population no larger than New York City, impacted the world of design to a degree never before seen and unlikely to be repeated. Scandinavian Modern design already had a solid domestic audience, and the Post-World War II American consumer was ready for the distinctive style and the fine quality it offered._x000D_With a focus on more than 60 designers, this extensively researched book presents the furniture and household objects - especially those of wood and metal. of the Scandinavian Modern style, beginning in the 1930s and culminating in the 1970s. Hundreds of photographs and a comprehensive introduction, historical timeline, and appendices of furniture makers and designers, distributors, and sources are included. Detailed captions with current prices, a large bibliography, and an index make this book a valuable reference and a must for all collectors, dealers, and researchers of Scandinavian design. AUTHOR: Michael Ellison collects and deals in Scandinavian and other modern furnishings in Sarasota, Florida. Leslie Pina, a college professor, has written and co-authored many books and articles on decorative arts and design. She lives in Ohio.
