Scandinavian Design started in 1955, Hans Lindblom, an architect from Stockholm was asked by his friend, Bruno Mathsson, to open a showroom in New York offering his furniture designs.
On his following trip back to Sweden, Mr. Lindblom purchased all of the Mathsson designs being made at the time, and brought them back with him to New York on the ship: "Queen Elizabeth."
He opened a showroom located at 20 East 58th Street and called it "Bruno Mathsson Furniture." After several years, Mr Lindblom added furniture designed by Alvar Aalto, Arne Jacobsen, Hans J. Wegner etc. and the company name was changed to Scandinavian Design, Inc.
Today our total representation includes more than 50 furniture and lighting designers from 26 manufacturers in Sweden, Denmark and Finland. The period represented is the 30's, 40's and 50's when contemporary classics where created together with brand new modern design, some that has won numerous designer awards in Europe.
Working closely with the manufacturers, our company has through the years gained a thorough knowledge of the construction and function of their entire production. If there is a designer from Sweden, Denmark or Finland not included here, we will be happy to research it for you.
