Website of the Day

August 18, 2011

It probably won’t come as much of a surprise to you but Catherine and I love Scandinavian design so I thought I would link you today to the home of Carl and Karin Larsson , Sundborn- www.clg.se . Carl as you may know was a talented painter but it was Karin who provided the wonderful style and textiles for the home.
She trained as a painter in both Stockholm and Paris but after the birth of her first child devoted herself to their home. She created tapestries, wove, designed not only the families clothes but furniture too – using a modern style that was unique for the era. In partnership with her husband they created one of the best known and loved artists residences in the world.
