We are headed on a Scandinavian adventure and I couldn't be more excited.

Scandinavian design was, in many ways, my introduction into the world of interiors and decoration. The minimalist, functional and affordable design movement that emerged out of 1950s Denmark, Norway, Finland, and Sweden isn't only Ikea, but countless iconic furniture shapes and pieces.  The style that was created more than sixty years ago retains a modernist appeal and continues to be in high demand.

Ole Wanscher, Arm chair, 1958

Finn Juhl, Chieftan chair, 1949 
Nanna Ditzel, Egg, 1959

I can't wait to delve in deeper into the nuances in the Danish, Norwegian and Swedish sensibilities and the fashion and culture.  Not to mention a seat at Noma's table!

But first, here is a taste of the amazing landscape.  We will be riding steep trains and taking overnight ferries, and a highlight, sailing through the fjords.
