Not in northern Europe.

And probably not anywhere else in the world. Because if it existed and if it was good, somebody would have mentioned it over the years.

There was one and has been out of publication a long time ago.  I heard the chairs used in the spread complained that they were objectified or used/exploited as objects of desire.  No judging, I only read the issues for the articles.

Kidding aside, there is a publication called Modern Magazine but its focus is probably not what you are looking for.  You can check their website at:

Found a magazine, what slightly strikes different topics of scandinavian design. Mostly about interieur architecture, but also some good articles about furniture.

@browkin Funny you chose the German version of this mag. Are you from Germany? Or anywhere near? This mag is pretty nice actually, but has nothing to do with vintage furniture. It portrays Danish or Scandinavian High End renovation projects, so its full of Finn Juhl, Arne Jacobsen or Borge Mogensen pieces, but all newly made. The mag is published by Bo Bedre. The international title is Nordic Living.

Fun fact: I just realize that I don't have the issue on the picture. I should go and get it.

Absolutely right. The magazine is not about vintage furniture etc. To be honest, I didn't go very deep in the content.  A friend bought for me that magazine axidantly somewhere on the way. I scrolled there a few times, reading only the headlines and noticed some good articles, cannot say more about it. 🙂

Yes, I am from Hannover, Germany. Where are you located?

@browkin The mag is very much worth flipping through. Not so much reading it. 🙂

I'm from Berlin.

@Herringbone Cool, I am now and then in Berlin. We have some relatives there. Do you have a shop in Berlin? Maybe I can pay a visit next time.

@browkin 😁 No, I don’t have a business. I‘m just a nerdy guy with an interest in furniture.
