The Swedish model..

is the name of the armchair, well not the chair itself but the design with the typical back and carvings of a rose. a shield or as in this case a flower at the top.
This armchair is new in the shop. It has been restored and now reveals its layer of lovely bluish grey original paint. And I love this early gustavian design with the rococo armrests!

This is also new. It´s a beautiful bench from the western part of southern Sweden.
It looks really cool with it´s square powerful lines and rough surface. A personal favorite!
As all my items are really as I only buy what I like myself. The trauma of being an antique dealer...

Antik och Auktion.. just det ja!

Jag hade faktiskt glömt att Antik och Auktion var på besök i butiken, det måste vara ett år sen!
Men när telefonen började ringa och folk frågade om reportage kom jag ihåg..
Charlotte Breimer Törnqvist, fotografen Milis Smith och jag stökade runt i den trånga butiken under några roliga timmar och resultatet blev ett gäng härliga bilder!
Här ovan är några av bilderna från tidningen.

The Swedish magazine Antik och Auktion did a photo shoot in the shop over a year ago. And now it´s out! I had completely forgotten about it..
Here are some of the images featured in the article.

Tack för igår!

Till mina kära vänner som, utan att tala med varandra innan, valde varsin av mina favoritblommor. Och gav till mig! Ranunklar i en härlig purpurton, det fantastiska rutiga underverket kungsängslilja och ståtliga franska tulpaner tillsammans med en ljuvligt vårlik kvist. Tack ni söta med stora själar!

Little humor, Many happiness

One of the things that is important to me in life is actually not a thing but a state of mind and that is CURIOSITY. Which is what these little grassy-green alternative post-its inspire to!
What new, fantastic knowledge is marked by that little sprout?

I found them on the great blog automatism and the company called Yuruliku also has its own website which you must check out! here

A secret garden

With spring ever so far away in a Stockholm covered in ice and snow this is where I would like to be..

"What is beauty?
When we call a chair or a house beautiful, really what we are saying is that we like the way of life it´s suggesting to us. It has an attitude we´re attracted to: if it was magically turned into a person, we´d like who it was."

From Alain de Botton´s "The architecture of happiness"
