Viking Makes it Modern

"Dust off that teak sideboard," writes Mpls St. Paul Home Editor Melinda Nelson in her upcoming Viking feature. "Your family's mid-century heirlooms are the must-have furnishings of the moment."

Nelson has teamed up with Twin Cities interior designer Holly Bayer to take a fresh look at Scandinavian modern design for our May cover story. Nelson and Bayer combine the old with the new to give mid-century classics a look that is decidedly fresh. It's not your parents'—or grandparents'—Scandinavian modern!

To bring the look together for our photo shoot, Nelson and Bayer turned to some of their favorite local resources. They found the gorgeous sideboard pictured here from Danish Teak Classics, and chairs and accent tables from Spinario Design. Steve Belrose of Belrose & Co. created white pine flooring with a perfect patina for the shoot.

To learn how and where to get the look for your own home, watch for the May issue of Viking! You'll find Nelson's favorite Scandinavian design resources, as well as tips from Bayer on how to add a touch of Scandinavian modern to any decor.
