Scandinavian Modern Home: Elizabeth Wilhide: Books
It’s a great book on Scandinavian history, it details by regional variations such as Danish, Swedish, Finnish and Norwegian. Then, in the directory, goes by each designer and their famous designs. There is so much to go through, you can learn about the famous Egg Chair, Tulip Chair, Womb Chair and so many more. There are textile designs, glassware, lighting and more. It’s amazing how many of these gorgeous creations are from early to mid 1900’s and they are still in style to this day. Shows what great design can do. This is one of my new favorite books and I know I will be referencing it for years to come.
So much great design historically has come from the Scandinavian region. Even stuff from centuries back has a fresh quality about it.
ive always loved scandinavian design, but have never been able to pull it off successfully... maybe once i get this it'll magically give me the ability.... if not, at least it will be a good read :D
