Scandinavian Modern, By Magnus Englund and Chrystina Schmidt
In Scandinavian Modern, Magnus Englund and Chrystina Schmidt of celebrated Scandinavian design store Skandium in London trace the development of the Scandinavian style, introduce key designers and their work and take a privileged peep into some of the most stylish and interesting homes in Scandinavia. The first section, Elements, takes a lively look at Scandinavian design in the context of materials: wood, glass, textiles, ceramics and so on. The second section. Living, offers an in-depth visual survey of 12 outstanding homes in Denmark. Sweden and Finland, ranging from modern country houses to sophisticated city-centre apartments. The accompanying text provides a fascinating insight into each home, describing its design, planning and evolution.
Magnus Englund, who wrote the text, and Chrystina Schmidt, who sourced the locations, are co-founders and director of Skandium, the well-known chain of stores selling modern Scandinavian furniture and homeware.
