An eclectic property—with superb designer ties—recently surfaced on the market in Stockholm. Originally a 19th-century blacksmith’s workshop, the transformed residence is now home to Petrus Palmér, founder and head of global design at the Swedish furnishings company Hem. Palmer purchased the space in 2015 and tapped Swedish studio Förstberg Ling to create an elegant yet playful home.
Located in central Stockholm, the two-floor dwelling is concealed from the street thanks to a lush courtyard entry sequence. While the home is modest in size—measuring around 1,000 square feet—its high ceilings and large windows promote a bright and airy feeling throughout the interior. Naturally, rooms are filled with Hem favorites but also family heirlooms and a few selections from other designers.
'Hem' translates to 'home' in Swedish, and for Palmér, this home is a special place. "It’s been wonderful, a real treat to live so centrally and yet so secluded," he states in a recent interview. "The kids have loved it as well, with the courtyard featuring an apple tree and all."
The interiors feature a neutral material palette of light wood, polished concrete, and marble. Earth-toned accent colors contrast with the crisp white walls, creating a warm aesthetic. Keep scrolling to see more of the home, currently listed for SEK 11,950,000, or approximately $1,235,000.
Surbrunnsgatan 9 in Stockholm, Sweden, is currently listed for SEK 11,950,000 (approximately $1,235,717 USD) by Per Jansonn.
