Neoclassicism in the North : Swedish Furniture and Interiors, 1770-1850 Paperback
by Hakan Groth
An exploration of Swedish furniture and interiors, from royal salons with exquisite Pompeian ornament to modest splatter-painted Biedermeier halls.
The volume contains nearly 400 photographs presenting the decoration and furnishings of 20 houses and apartments in neoclassical style with a Swedish freshness.
The text traces the evolution of the neoclassical style in Sweden, placing it in its wider European context, and examines the history of each of the buildings.
Plans and original drawings by the architects and designers are included.
