History And Heritage
A lot of our goods are from our area and the Northern part of Sweden. Here we have a long and rich history of skilled carpenters whom have been manufacturing furnitures for hundreds of years, primarily between the 1700 and 1900s. A large part of our culture consists of painted pine furniture.
A very good thing about this area is that our dry, cool climate makes the trees grow very slowly. That in turn makes the wood itself very hard and the quality of the material high. This results in that our Swedish antique furniture are much stronger and longer lasting. Without any issues with wood worms.
Even today this area is famous for its timber and wood products. For example, one of Europes biggest and most modern sawmills is located only a few minutes drive away from our store.
