Why We Love This

Virtually unknown to the world at large, Sweden's country houses are now revealed in detail in this volume, which will not only serve as a definitive volume on the Swedish country house but will also introduce a new design aesthetic to American readers. Decorative brilliance and creativity are manifested throughout the interiors, in painting, woodcarving, and hand-printed wallpaper. The evolution of the interior over time led to a particularly distinctive element of Swedish domestic art, the tiled stove. Stone palaces and painted wooden farmhouses with interiors ranging from elegant chinoiserie to lively country scenes are set in idyllic rural settings. Drawing on recent research, Susanna Scherman introduces many of the leading Swedish architects, as well as assessing the contribution of foreign designers and styles, from ancient Roman to French Rococo.
