Product Description


Twentieth century Danish furniture design is simple and clean, mixes well with other design styles, and has an inherent value and history beyond its beauty. In "Danish Modern", Andrew Hollingsworth explores the history of Danish design, from the earliest cabinetmakers' guilds in the 1770s through the impact of two world wars, and its evolution into the twentieth century. Through beautiful photos, the book emphasizes how well Danish Modern furniture works in contemporary and traditional homes. It includes a market guide with tips, facts and resources that discusses veneer vs. solid wood, places to find Danish Modern furniture, and how to care for it; and an extensive resource section.

There aren't many good books on Danish interior design. This is probably the best one.
Also good value for price.

5.0 out of 5 stars More than I expected 20 Sep 2009
By Photography lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I was absolutely shocked when I got this book. Having many design books, I thought this looked like it could be a good one, however I had no idea that it was going to be as good as it is. The layout and organization are amazingly well done by a team that is obviously extremely familiar with this design genre. This is a present for a friend however you can believe that I'm getting another copy for myself as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great reference book is also beautiful 3 May 2010
By Johanna Lindsay - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The sneak previews didn't give much sense of the book, so I was a little nervous about ordering it. It turns out to be a beautiful coffee table book - but is also an excellent reference. It covers more than the 50's/60's era furniture most often associated with this style - interesting for those who like a little more background on how styles develop.

I love this beautifully illustrated book. Lots of gorgeous photos and ideas for rooms with a Scandinavian aesthetic. I come back to this often and find a new idea each time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Danish Modern is Pleasant Reading 27 Aug 2012
By EAmigo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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.
