Lagom

Linnea Dunne
Authors:
Linnea Dunne

Lagom (pronounced 'lar-gom') has no equivalent in the English language but is loosely translated as 'not too little, not too much, just right'. It is widely believed that the word comes from the Viking term 'laget om', for when a mug of mead was passed around a circle and there was just enough for everyone to get a sip. But while the anecdote may hit the nail on the head, the true etymology of the word points to an old form of the word 'lag', which means 'law'.Far from restrictive, lagom is a liberating concept, praising the idea that anything more that 'just enough' is a waste of time. Crucially it also comes with a selflessness and core belief of responsibility and common good. By living lagom you can live a happier and more balanced life, reduce your environmental impact, improve your work-life balance, free your home from clutter, enjoy good food the Swedish way, grow your own and learn to forage, and cherish the relationships with those you love.

Judith Miller
Authors:
Judith Miller

'...one of the most friendly, easygoing and instructive books on the design movement' Chicago TribuneArts & Crafts is one of the most influential design movements of all time, beginning in the late 19th century and still being explored by designers today. The Arts & Crafts ethos - rejecting mass production and industrialization in favour of individualism, simplicity, honest craftsmanship, respect for materials and good design - had a massive impact on the design of the early 20th century and transformed design sensibilities globally. This invaluable guide covers furniture, ceramics, silver and metalware, glass, textiles, jewellery, books and posters, and includes fascinating profiles of key designers such as William Morris, the Stickleys, Liberty & Co, Tiffany Studios, George Ohr, Rookwood and many more. It comes with a pictorial design directory, price ranges and a wealth of essential information for collectors and anyone wishing to follow William Morris's golden rule of Arts & Crafts: 'Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.'
