By the 1970’s, rapidly changing tastes in America diminished the importance of Danish Modern, and sales - which had built steadily into the 1960’s - began to decline. A renaissance occurred by the 1990’s, however, and today Danish Modern furniture is not only back in vogue but commanding astronomical prices. Still, it has been difficult for new designers to overcome the towering reputations of figures such as Jacobsen, Juhl, and Wegner. More than half a century later, their designs continue to define the qualities of Danish Modern that spoke so strongly to American tastes in the last century. This exhibition presented some of the greatest of designers and their designs. Richly illustrated with text by three experts in the field.
