Scandinavian Design Office Furniture
- Scandinavian Design, Inc. was a chain of furniture stores with locations in Maine; Massachusetts; Connecticut; New Hampshire; Rhode Island; New York; New Jersey; Washington, D.C.; Maryland; Virginia; and Hawaii, between 1965 and 1988.
- Scandinavian design emerged in the 1950s in the three Scandinavian countries (Denmark, Norway and Sweden), as well as Finland. It is a design movement characterized by simple designs, minimalism, functionality, and low-cost mass production.
- Items normally associated with the occupancy or use in such areas as offices, conference and reception rooms, institutional waiting rooms, lobbies, and libraries.
- Furniture is the mass noun for the movable objects ('mobile' in Latin languages) intended to support various human activities such as seating and sleeping in beds, to hold objects at a convenient height for work using horizontal surfaces above the ground, or to store things.
This is an original 1870 lithograph that shows the architectural elements of German and Scandinavian architecture including: the Refectory in the Palace at Marienburg; St., Mary's Church at Danzig; the Cathedral of Stendal; the Portal of St. Stephen's Church at Tangermuende; the Cloister Church at Berlin; and the Cathedral at Upsala.
This lithograph is from a collection detailing the history and beauty of architecture from prehistoric times through the 1800's. Due to the heavy stock of the paper, the original plate emboss can still be viewed in the margins of most lithographs --a rare and highly desirable feature of this art. Our digital capture process enhances the visibility and tone of the foxing; however, in the original pieces the foxing, especially along the edges, is less pronounced. Virtually all foxing is restricted to the outermost margin and would be eliminated when framed.
Now that condomaximus has been sold, I am in the process of packing up and preparing to move. Part of these preparations include the painting and rearranging of furniture in the new apartment. The previous tenants had done a nice little job renovating the place. The kitchen and entryway had been tiled, they had replaced light fixtures, they had painted the walls and trim, replaced the floor. Unfortunately their tastes were a bit more traditional than mine. In the months that the gentleman had lived there, he had planned some changes but it has taken the expedient sale of my condo to escalate the plan.
This weekend we repainted the peachy walls in the living/dining room and hallway white. I deliberated for a long time whether of not to paint with some colour but considering the northeast orientation of the apartment and my love of the Scandinavian aesthetic, the gentleman and I agreed that white would be a good idea. Although these three shots are photos of the rooms without furniture (and shot with a wide angle), you will have to take my word for it that the rooms do feel much bigger and reflect more light. In fact, it felt rather nice to sit in the room without any lights on, and it was a particularly grey winter day.
You can see in the picture on the left the orange of the office/guest bedroom. This will be repainted this week.

I applied a brown filter to the photo to reinforce the 1960s feel.

This is an original 1932 photogravure of the Scandinavian Mountains in Norway (Norge). Photograph by Kurt Hielscher.
Period Paper is pleased to offer an exceptional collection of historic original photogravures of the architecture, landscape, and people of Denmark, Sweden, and Norway. The actual border around the photogravure is larger than what is shown in the digital image, and each image usually has a caption in several languages which will be included with the item when shipped. However, we wanted to show you the actual image up close and the dimensions provided next to the "Size" indicate the size of the actual photogravure only. The total size is approximately two inches larger in width and height. These original photogravures are not to be confused with the more common halftone prints. Each of these photogravures was created from an engraved plate and provides exceptional detail, contrast, warmth, and depth, making them excellent original images for framing.
The Photogravure Process. A photogravure is a photographic image produced from an engraving plate--an expensive and rarely used process today. Through the transfer of etching ink from an etched copperplate to special dampened paper run through an etching press, this process creates an image that registers an extraordinary variety of tones. This unique tonal range comes from photogravure's variable depth of etch--the shadows are etched many times deeper than the highlights unlike the halftone processes that merely vary dot size. The prints produced via this process have the subtle tones of a photograph and the art quality of a lithograph, making them extraordinarily collectible items.
Please note that there is printing on the reverse.
