Swedish Grace is the collective name for a certain design and architectural style created in Sweden around the period 1910-1930. You may also call it a Swedish version of Art Déco. Visually a reaction against the previous and very ornamental Art Noveau/Jugend stil, promoting a cleaner, more pure look with classical components. We have created this little photo collection to celebrate this still so popular style - and we have, of course, much more related to Swedish Grace than what you see here. Search for designer,s architects, buildings and artists - or simply ask us! Meanwhile, enjoy this little tribute to Swedish Grace, featuring GunnarAsplund, Carl Malmsten, Edward Hald, Ivar tengbom, Ivar Johansson and Carl Milles. On the photo below Prince Bertil of Sweden is looking at glass by Simon Gate from 1920.
