'Furniture Boom' brings the golden age of Danish furniture design to life

This 1948 watercolor by Danish designer Hans J. Wegner, produced for MoMA’s Competition for Low-Cost Furniture Design of the same year (which Wegner did not win), is reproduced from Furniture Boom, Strandberg Publishing's new 384-page survey of mid-century modern Danish furniture—reviewed this weekend in The Wall Street Journal. Exquisitely printed on deluxe, uncoated paper, this volume spans the "golden years" of 1945–1975, amplifying serious scholarship with contemporary documentation of historical pieces and well-chosen vintage photographs, posters, advertisements, plans, and sketches. With chapters ranging in subject from "Ergonomics and Anthropometrics" to "The Gynecological Examination Couch and Sexual Liberation," this volume goes Library-deep while still being gorgeous enough to sit on any high-design coffee table.
