And speaking of Kaare Klint, he also designed some of the most iconic shades for his brother's light furniture company, Le Klint. But when it comes to designing lamps, there's one name that seem to rule them all: Poul Henningsen (often referred to as PH).

Y (pun intended) do we Danes keep mentioning swans, ants, pelicans and peacocks? Well, these are names of some of our most famous furniture design pieces to come out of the Danish Modern movement in the mid-20th century. And chances are you've heard of the designers as well, because they include Arne Jacobsen, Hans J. Wegner, Finn Juhl, Poul Kjærholm and Børge Mogensen. Their legacy continues to influence and inspire Danish furniture design to this day, such as HAY and BoConcept.
