"I think both furniture and textiles, wherever they end up, must be kind, gentle and courteous, but without losing their character. They should have human qualities, not be pompous and only stand alone, but able to adapt to the environment they end up in."

These words of Kerstin Hörlin-Holmquist could well be considered a Mission statement for the designers of the Swedish Moderne. She designed this sofa as part of the iconic Paradiset Collection for Nordiska Companiet. It has a graceful curvaceousness that we love in Swedish furniture of this period.

Completely restored and reupholstered in an ivory velvet.
