    Danish Modern: Design for Living Description:

    Sleek, stylish, and still popular after half a century – Danish Modern furniture and home décor continues to inspire. “Danish Modern: Design for Living” celebrates the icons of Danish mid-century design, and explores the ways in which Americans were introduced to this style through advertisements, exhibitions, Hollywood films, and even through presidential debates! Full-color photos offer a visual introduction to the furniture and housewares of the period. Essays by scholars of Scandinavian design and culture place the pieces in context as a global style, but one that still holds a cherished place in the lives and homes of millions of people.

    Published by the Museum of Danish America in 2013 in celebration of the museum’s 30th anniversary. A related exhibition toured to four museums across the United States.
