Traditional meets modern in
this princely estate dating from 1910 and situated along the shore on the east
side of Lidingös.
Decorated with only the finest
antiques and fabrics, this unique home is something to behold.
Decorated primarily in the
Empire style, the living room showcases a pair of crystal chandeliers that represent
the best quality while offering both electric bulbs and wax candles. The window
treatments are firmly in the Empire style, also known as the Swedish Karl Johan period. The round mahogany occasional
tables and the settee along the wall are more beautiful examples from this well known era.
The dining room boasts a
second pair of crystal Empire chandeliers over the dining table, and a single smaller version in the charming alcove sitting area.
Both spaces look out over the wintry water.
A separate sitting room
showcases a spectacular rock crystal chandelier as well as a beautiful and
generously proportioned corner fireplace.
Again we see the pairing of both Empire and Gustavian antiques resulting
in a beautiful space. The arm chairs are a well recognized Gustavian design sought after
and reproduced all across the world.
The foyer showcases the Swedish
flag, hinting to the possible government roll this homeowner may play. The Rococo chairs and Gustavian table create
a beautiful and inviting space. The herringbone
parquet floor echoes the traditional high end Swedish design trend of this home.
The kitchen, a traditional yet less formal room in this home, maintains the quality and elegance seen
A spectacular wine room holds hundreds
of bottles, while a sitting space just to the right shows two beautiful pieces
of Vinranka Flo Blu china.
The updated contemporary
bathroom remind us that this is a homeowner with one foot firmly planted in the tradition of the past and the freshness of the present.
This bedroom, with spectacular
views over the water, offers guest an elegant and sumptuous resting place.
