As part of this year’s Stockholm Design Week, one of Sweden’s oldest furniture brands, Gärsnäs launched its beautiful new showroom.
Based in Skåne, this family-owned business has had an environmental focus, offering sustainably sourced and locally manufactured sofas, tables and chairs since 1893. And, with a pledge to be completely circular in its design process, as well as climate neutral by 2030, it is a brand I hope many more Scandinavian furniture lovers will choose to invest in too.
At the new ‘House of Gärsnäs’, which is located inside the magnificent 17th century, Brandenburg House apartment in Stockholm’s Old Town, visitors can experience spectacular views across to Skeppsholmen island as well as a collection of their most appreciated and iconic designs.
Set against a backdrop of high ceilings, intricate cornicing and striking panelling, in a relaxed and informally decorated living room, dining room, kitchen and home office setting, every piece has been perfectly curated and styled by designer Nina Jobs.
Run since 2003 by Anna and Dag Klockby, along with Anna’s father the designer Åke Axelsson, who created his first chair for Gärsnäs in the 1960s, the brand is best known for furnishing public spaces, but this new showroom also marks a return to their original market, furnishing private homes too.
I for one would love to add modern Scandinavian design pieces such as the ‘Dandy’ rattan and leather easy chair by Pierre Sindre, Nina Jobs ‘Kvilt’ sofa or Märta Friman’s ‘Bond’ coffee table to my home.
With a history spanning 128 years, this certainly feels like the exciting start of something new.
House of Gärsnäs can be visited by appointment only at Skeppsbron 30, 111 30 Stockholm, Sweden.
