Each picture in this book could stand alone as a work of art - a testament to Sweden's innate sense of style. Period by period, house by house, breathtaking images and elegantly authoritative text focus on those special features of the traditional Swedish room that have made it one of the major influences on decorating today.
Every room is inviting, whether it is a royal guest room, an artistocratic boudoir, or a farmer's kitchen. Every detail is enchanting, from the simple checks and stripes of the fabrics to the way they adorn window frames and form bed canopies, from the elegant outlines of a Gustavian chair to the gleaming titles of the ceramic stoves. The pale distressed colours and light-suffused interiors of the manor houses contrast with the rich claret red wooden exteriors and glowing, ingenuous wall paintings of the farmhouses.
The authors trace the development of this quintessentially Swedish style from its antecedents in the seventeenth century through its heyday in the later eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, to its followers today. The photographs include detailed close-ups with explanatory captions, so that The Swedish Room is both a source of original, practical decorative ideas as well as an irresistible voyage of discovery through some of the world's most appealing interiors.

Lars Sjöberg had a 36-year career at the National Museum in Sweden, and for many of those years he was Senior Curator in the Department of the Royal Castles Collections. During that time he worked on the exhibitions Empire Style, Thought and Form in Rococo and The Sun and the Polar Star (Stockholm and Paris). Since 1990 he has been a consultant on reproduction 18th-century furniture for the National Board of Antiquities and IKEA. He is the author of over fifteen books, including The Swedish Room.

Ursula Sjöberg, who is married to Lars Sjöberg, is a writer and an art historian who specializes in Swedish architecture and interior design of the late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-centuries. She is a curator of fine art at Bukowski's auction house in Stockholm.

Synopsis:
This illustrated work of Swedish interior design covers the special features of the traditional Swedish room through different periods, and is a source of original, practical decorative ideas. Every room is made for living in - uncluttered and light-suffused in pale colours or glowing with vernacular paintings; simple painted furniture and fabrics woven in blue or red stripes. House by house, region by region, this book reveals the Swedish room as a work of art that has a place in every home.
