The concept of interior design has appealed to me for quite some time. From an aesthetic understanding, the nuances of arranging objects and furniture in a room to serve a certain purpose is ceaselessly interesting for me. Though I find certain stylistics to be icily cold, more often than not, there is something to admire in them.
Recently, I came across a copy of Golden Press’ A Treasury of Scandinavian Design. In it, there are pages and pages addressing all facets of Scandinavian design, from furniture to glassware to jewelry, and most everything in between. I would suggest that anyone with an even mild interest in the art of interiors find a copy, as it will certainly encourage an understanding of the creativity in the Scandinavian countries. I intend to purchase a copy as soon as I am able.
While I cannot post any pictures of the book, I leave you with a work featured in the book-Edna Martin’s lovely wall hanging, “Grandiflora.”
