Swedish designer Louise Liljencrantz is known for her carefully considered interiors accented by clean lines, opulent textures and muted tones. Her interiors are predominantly minimalist in style and exude a sense of luxury through her choice of furnishings and finishes.
Liljencrantz’s portfolio spans interior and furniture design for both residential and commercial spaces, however it’s her own home in central Stockholm which has our attention captured.
Liljencrantz lives with her family in a 200sqm apartment in a building dating back to 1883. The home features timber parquetry floors, large windows which flood the rooms with natural light, Victorian cornices and a beautifully curated collection of artwork and furniture. The apartment is composed of a palette of white, shades of grey and beige, all pulled together with splashes of black. The palette is crisp and clean, allowing the details of the furniture and artworks to come to life.
The rooms are spacious and have been decorated with an array of classic and contemporary furniture. In the living room, an Alanda coffee table designed by Paolo Piva takes pride of place. Timber stools designed by Charlotte Perriand for Cassina sit alongside the table, connecting harmoniously with the floorboards. A fluffy fur Botolo chair designed by Cini Boeri for Arflex adds a touch of softness and adds textural interest to the interior.
A sculptural, three-armed Serge Mouille light adorns the ceiling above the dining table, the curvature of its arms married with the soft round backs of the Jonas Bohlin Point chairs. A vintage Sputnik hanging lamp by Lustry Kamenicky Senov hangs from the master bedroom ceiling, adding a sense of drama and grandeur. A striking, plush velvet upholstered bench seat neatly frames the bed and anchors the room’s identity, unsurprisingly, it was designed by Liljencrantz herself.
