Warm, yellow sunlight and billowing curtains. Materials that testify to the closeness of nature. This summer, we’re decorating the living room for a simple seaside lifestyle.
It’s not the household items and furniture that are the most important – it’s the ‘atmosphere’. This consists partly of the light, both daylight and evening light, and the proportions of the room… Everything that ‘lives’ makes a home far more beautiful than a perfectly formed chair or a carefully selected wallpaper on the wall.

Stools have been placed in the summer living room like small islands in the sea. Both Josef Frank and Estrid Ericson advocated furnishings that changed with the times. The easy-to-move stool was therefore an ideal piece of furniture, which should of course be part of a free and flexible interior, according to Josef Frank.
... The modern home is therefore a mix of more expensive and inexpensive objects that don’t have to go together… The main thing is simply convenience and comfort.
