Inspiration: Pia Wallen’s Swan Chairs

October 21st, 2009

We were thrilled to visit Pia Wallen at her studio loft in Stockholm in June. It was one of the nicest spaces Juli and I have ever seen and it hasn’t left our minds. The beautiful white floors and walls, large windows, and hits of black and red heavily influenced our design decisions at the cottage and no doubt will come back when we eventually renovate our apartment.


The one thing we can’t forget was how comfortable and intimate her collection of old weathered Swan chairs were. We all sat together around this coffee table eating Swedish strawberries and talking about her designs.

Now these Swan chairs have since become our obsession…

Black leather Swan chair and AJ floorlight is a winning combination from Jonnieeleven’s Flickr page.
