The five countries known collectively as Scandinavia have been the source of some of the most important furniture designs of the twentieth century.

Today, a new generation of designers continues that tradition, creating pieces that are functional, comfortable, and visually appealing. This book, the first American summary of modern Scandinavian design in more than two decades, updates the history of design in the Nordic nations, and illustrates more than 500 of the best current furniture from over 70 producers, most of them in full color. It also includes detailed product specifications and sources, biographies of important Nordic designers, and a comprehensive bibliography. It will appeal to everyone with an interest in modern furniture, as well as designers, architects, collectors, and students with a special interest in Scandinavian design. 500 color & 400 b/w illustrations
