New from veteran design writer Heather Smith MacIsaac: Lars Bolander's Scandinavian Design, a must-read for anyone interested in Nordic style (it tells the story of Scandinavian design according to Bolander, the much-lauded Swedish designer). Projects profiled range from Gustavian interiors to modern summer houses; although he's now mainly based in Palm Beach, Bolander's two sons continue his interior design practice in New York (including the Lars Bolander Showroom in the Fine Arts Building on 59th Street). Lars Bolander's Scandinavian Design is $26.40 at Amazon.
