An Outdated 1960s Swedish Villa is Transformed Into a Spacious, Elegant and Luxurious Residence

, , , , , , By Catherine


Swedish design duo Mats Broberg and Johan Ridderstråle infused a new breath of life to an outdated 1960s villa, originally designed by Gustaf Rosenberg and Olle Stål from Rosenberg Architects.

Following extensive renovations, the home located near Stockholm was modernized, but its original character remains. The result is a beautiful, functional and luxurious residence with generous ceiling height, large windows, incredible views and an enviable light. The interior is spacious and elegant, with gorgeous materials and a neutral palette. Very chic!



Broberg & Ridderstråle is an award-winning duo of interior and product designers. They met at Konstfack University of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm in 2001.

They created many furniture and accessories in this home:

  • The Gloria candleholder/vase (shown above)
  • AJulius Square bar cart for Klong
  • Tati coffee tables for Asplund
  • Sofas and a Plateau side table for Adea
  • A Leaf lamp from Muuto.

You can also spot an Atollo table lamp by Vico Magistretti for Oluce, Wishbone dining chairs by Hans Wegner, an Egg chair by Arne Jacobsen, a ML42 stool by Mogens Lassen, and two leather armchairs by Antonio Cittero.

To find out where you can find some of those amazing design pieces, have a look at my shop directory and search by brand.
