In the last fifteen years, there has been an increasing trend in Scandinavian design at several large international auction houses.

Even the Swedish auction houses Design departments have been a cash cow and a go-to Design source for the global market.

Just last week, Stockholms Auktionsverk sold Finn Juhl's  "Egyptian Chair" £54 500 (640 000 SEK.) Now, this week, Nordic design is on display at Bukowski's Berzelii Park, Stockholm, showroom, in their first ever Design auction ever of this kind on May 3.

Instead of the usual works of art, Marta Maas-Fjetterström's carpet creations adorn the walls of Bukowski's. For me, and I'm sure plenty of other Swedes, it is like seeing Maas-Fjetterström's works with new eyes.

The U.S.'s very own Wright is also renowned worldwide for their distinguished Design sales.

In addition to the strong ceramics offerings, are beautiful art glass pieces. Including creations by Edward Hald for Orrefors, 1918.

As the market has shown a particular interest in Scandinavian design, one of the first auction houses to host Design-dedicated sales was Phillips.

French auction house Piasa works closely with several of the world's foremost interior designers to bring exquisite Design sales to the market. This year, in late June, they have an exciting auction focusing on Brazilian design from the 1930's to present day.
