Wegner AP-445 "Wingback"

A "Wingback-chair" by Hans J. Wegner, from original producer AP-Stolen is for sale by Gallerie Grefmar in Malmö, Sweden. This chair was designed in 1960 and supposedly only produced in a very limited number until it was taken back into production in 2006 - this time by Carl Hansen & Søn. A true rarity, in other words.

It is, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful as well as comfortable lounge chairs to this day - unmistakably 60's, yet so fresh, so clean...

Apartment by Claesson Koivisto Rune

This apartment was made by renowned swedish architecture-trio Claesson Koivisto Rune for an unnamed art dealer, and furnished by Sven Skarstedt of Galerie Scandinavian Classics.


Next to the amazing park Tessinparken in Gärdet, Stockholm, built in the early thirties as on of Sweden's first modernist areas, lies this apartment, with an ecclectic mix of furniture.
