"500 carefully selected designs that also include the most up-to-date pieces that constitute the current revival in Nordic design....Recommended." -- CHOICE
"[E]xcellent...[P]lenty of context...to appreciate how Scandinavian furniture defined a past era, and how it will likely define the future" -- Sandy McLendon - Modernism Magazine
