I actually grew up in the 40s and 50s at FLW's Fallingwater where modern design, especially Scandinavian, was and continues to be a part of my nature. So, after embarking on my engineering career I furnished my home with Scandinavian furniture. I bought my first copy of Danish Modern several years ago from Amazon and was enthralled by the illustrations of some heretofore undiscovered Scandinavian designers in the 20th century. As noted, I enjoy a lot of classical Danish furniture and objects shown in the book and if I can believe the auction sites, the fine craftsmanship and design of Danish Modern furniture has more than kept up with inflation. It is a good investment! This book provides an excellent summary of the history of Danish furniture and provides fine examples in excellent photos of the universal design principals therein. I purchased a second copy for myself after giving my first copy to a friend who is more appreciative of Danish design that I am; she is married to a friend from Denmark.
