About the Designer: Josef Frank (1885-1967), Austrian architect, furniture and fabric designer, was a leading voice for a gentle, humane modernism. His advocacy of warm, comfortable, eclectically-styled environments was highly influential in his adopted country of Sweden, and it is now widely regarded as a harbinger of the backlash against a doctrinaire modernism and the embrace of the homespun that occurred in the 1960s. In all his designs, Frank took inspiration from a broad variety of sources. In his furniture, one can discern traces of Asian patterns, Rococo, Italian Renaissance, Scandinavian handicrafts and even Chippendale pieces. As such, the work of Frank - the friendly modernist - is at home in any type of décor.
