Swedish country houses are among Europe’s best-kept secrets. Little known to the outside world and rarely illustrated, they survive in surprisingly large numbers, often with their original furniture and decoration.
The story of Swedish country houses is a mirror of Swedish social history, its hierarchy of classes, its absorption of European styles and movements, and above all the enduring character of its own culture.
This superb book, by a leading Swedish specialist in interiors, richly illustrated with images specially taken by a leading Swedish photographer, examines in detail examples from royal palaces to farmhouses, from the fifteenth century to the end of the nineteenth century.
