Last year the venerable Swedish furniture makers Gärsnäs showed us they could bring fashion to furniture with Pierre Sindre’s collared Button chair, Anna von Schewen’s bunched Dress chair, and the prototype of Nina Jobs’ quilted Kvilt chair. This year at the Stockholm Furniture Fair, they proved they were committed.
After a two-year development process, the Kvilt chair and sofa are now in production. Depending on the kind of textiles or leathers and quilting pattern chosen, the line can vary significantly from piece to piece. And with their removable covers, trendsetters can even change up their look with the season.
The biggest and most welcome evolution is in Anna von Schewen’s Dress range. Anna has done a lot of work for Gärsnäs in the past, and I think this might be the furniture company’s own special way of giving back. They’ve given her a lovely little sofa-for-two to try her dress on, and it seems a perfect fit.
