Twentieth century Danish furniture design is simple and clean, mixes well with other design styles, and has an inherent value and history beyond its beauty.

Publisher Description

For serious furniture collectors, Danish is more than a pastry-it's an art form. Twentieth century Danish furniture design is simple and clean., mixes well with other design styles, and has an inherent value and history beyond its beauty. In Modern Danish, Andrew Hollingsworth explores the history of Danish design, from the earliest cabinetmakers' guilds in the 1770s through the impact of two world wars, and its evolution into the twentieth century. The book includes photographic surveys of Danish Modern furniture in homes across the Unites States; a market guide with tips, facts and resources that includes discussions of veneer vs. solid wood, places to find Danish Modern furniture, and a guide to caring for it; and an extensive resource section.
Andrew Hollingsworth first started collecting Danish Modern furniture fifteen years ago while living in Europe. Passion for the field led to the founding of his eponymous gallery in 2002 specializing in twentieth-century Scandinavian and contemporary European design. Since that time he has participated in many of the nation's leading antique and design shows, has made TV appearances and has been the subject of numerous press articles, including a feature story on the cover of Metropolitan Home in October 2004.

Review
Chicago antiques dealer Andrew Hollingsworth establishes himself as an expert on Scandinavian furnishings with his first book, “Danish Modern.” While many furniture-genre bookstake either a scholarly orpractical approach, “DanishModern” successfully blendsthe two. Hollingsworth'svoice is authoritative and sensible, educating thereader and leading them to affordable, usable finds. —Shaila Wunderlich“Chicago Tribune” (10/19/2008)
