INTERIOR INSPIRATION SCANDINAVIA

INTERIOR INSPIRATION SCANDINAVIA

SFr. 37.00


An all-you-need guide for anyone interested in the history and aesthetic of Scandinavian design

Includes 30 DIY projects
by Sonia Lucano

Natural materials, neutral colours, elegant lines: the Scandinavian look is one of the most popular in contemporary interior design. Rooted in the desire to create beautiful everyday objects that are practical, affordable and accessible to all, which emerged in Scandinavia during the 1930s, it is the embodiment of a cultural mindset that values the collective over the individual, shared by all five Nordic countries – Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden and Iceland. 

This book is both an introduction to the history of Scandinavian design and a style sourcebook. Featuring concise profiles of such great designers as Arne Jacobsen and Stig Lindberg, and such key furniture and textiles manufacturers as littala and Marimekko, it also includes 30 step-by-step DIY projects that show readers how to customize furniture and objects in the Scandinavian way. 

Designed in the style of a magazine to reflect its functionality, this book is a rare combination of information and practical advice, which is sure to seduce anyone enamoured of Scandi style.

Sonia Lucano writes widely on crafts and interior design. She is the author of numerous books on the subject, including Tote Bags in Thames & Hudson’s new ‘Craft Studio’ series.

In some, the books are hidden or not immediately recognizable — in others they take center stage and even interact with the design to create the finished composition. The definition of “bookshelf” is expanded to include, chairs, tables and even lamps that function as storage. There are a myriad of ways to shelve a book, but chances are, you’ve never thought of these…
