Northern Delights reveals why hardly any other interior or product design is so timeless, so functional, so aesthetic, and of such high quality as that of Sweden, Norway, Finland, and Denmark. The book’s stunning selection of Scandinavian design ranges from individual products to skillfully staged living spaces. Although it also presents iconic designs, the book focuses on the work of young talents who are consciously building upon local sustainable design traditions and further developing them in a way that is consistent, intelligent, and reflects an unerring sense of style. Northern Delights showcases classic, minimal, rustic, and pop styles that are united by their simplicity, functionality, and love of light. The included examples show how the grains of different woods, the clarity of colored glass, the cheery colors of fabrics and patterns, and the overall quality of craftsmanship contribute to creating simple, inviting, and very comfortable spaces. Whether the featured work was created for residences, offices, or any other rooms, in a Scandinavian interior, everyone feels at home.

Glamorous, fascinating, and sometimes even magical: the flagship stores of the biggest brands combine interior design and product presentation to create a unique mélange of style and image. Stores serve as a window into a very special world whether they are a concept store, pop-up store or a shrine to the brand. The days are long gone when they were merely a sales floor; brands in the fashion, automotive, beauty and lifestyle sectors want to inspire shoppers with their spirit. This is what turns customers into diehard fans. Store design is the great art of staging and communicating a brand’s values, and the supreme method of anchoring your brand in a customer’s mind over the long term. As our daily activities move increasingly into the virtual sphere, people long for things that are accessible and approachable. Retailers must fight an increasingly difficult battle with online providers to win customers. A sophisticated mix of a wide variety of materials, spaces designed with eclectic ingredients or luxurious accents, and elegant lighting solutions become vehicles that convey the heart and image of a brand and create tactile and visual experiences for shoppers. In this manner, shops become event locations, favourite hangouts, and in the very best cases, a kind of living room for customers and friends. This opulent book shows the most amazing stores, talks to brand makers and creative artists and designers, and offers unique insights into the previously unknown world of brand design.
