Scandinavian Modern Home

by Elizabeth Wilhide (Quadrille; £30)
Gorgeous location shots of post-Gustavian Scandinavian design are there to be enjoyed in a brilliant new book mixing source directory and inspiring photography from all over the world.

The general idea is to offer an illustrated history of who, in Scandinavia, designed what and when, and then place everything into context.

It also shows how some iconic designs, such as Fritz Hansen’s Egg chair, can be updated using modern colours and materials to better suit the way we live today. To order, call 01256 329242.
