Hjorthagen bench

Peter Brandt

Painted wood has been popular in Swedish furniture for several centuries, dating back to when local carpentry was painted to resemble French furniture. Paradoxically, painted wooden furniture later became Swedish hallmark. This bench, like the painted table, armchairs and benches in the Hjorthagen family, make elements of this style durable enough for the outdoors.
