Stockholm Furniture Fair 2011: Part II

After examining the wares of the younguns over at the Greenhouse, it was time to venture into the main portion of the Stockholm Furniture Fair. As is the case with any major design show, there were rows and rows of beautiful items, scores of exhibitors busily tending to last-minute booth preperations, and a constantly growing number of people shuffling around, mouths agape. Here we present a few images captured during eight straight hours on the floor—you'll see some just-released items, some old Scandinavian favorites, and lots and lots of this country's favorite color—yellow.

This year marks the sixtieth anniversary of the Stockholm Furniture Fair, and this display just outside the entrance to the show celebrates a selection of Scandinavian furniture classics from the past six decades. At center is Tree, by Katrin Olina and Michael Young (2003); top left is F139, by Karl Erik Ekselius (1955); the red pair at top right are Tilt, by Peter Andersson (2006), and Antelope, by Monica Förster (2010).
