Scandinavian Design on the Docket

Scandinavian Design on the Docket Kelsey Keith Peep a few of our favorite finds in a major Scandinavian design auction happening in Chicago on May 16, 2013. In the market for rare Swedish canape from 1925? A precious papercord chaise longue by Hans Wegner? An entire 43-piece set of midcentury Danish enamelware? Come May 16, you're in luck. Wright, the venerable Chicago-based auction house run by modern furniture expert Richard Wright , is the only sale of antiques from Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland. Works in the "Scandinavian Design" catalog range from established names—Arne Jacobsen, Alvar Aalto, the aforementioned Wegner—but lesser-known, equally talented designers like Nanna and Jørgen Ditzel, Arne Norell, Tapio Wirkkala, and Ole Wanscher, as well as carpets by Marianne Richter and Barbro Nilsson.
