The southwest corner of Sweden is a peninsula stretching out towards Denmark, and it is home to the twin towns of Skanör and Falsterbo. Both of them exude bohemian nobility and natural privilege. Here, obviously, Joseph Frank drew and built five summer houses – the only ones in Sweden. Here, southern Swedish nobility bathes in the nude. Today the towns have grown into one and it’s not always apparent where Falsterbo ends and Skanör begins. But there is, they say, an embankment separating the two, with Skanör south of it and Falsterbo to the north. Our lounge ranges, Falsterbo and the new Skanör, are not easily separated either, with the latter as an evolutionary step from the former. But still there are some distinct differences. Such as the taller back-rest with nine slats, instead of seven, and the placing of the cushions.
We come from Gävle which most of you haven’t heard of. It’s a small town on the Baltic coast. Some of the places nearby are beautiful enough to knock you off your feet. The Arctic Circle is just hours away. People have been fishing here for hundreds of years. Some still do. It’s windy and it’s harsh. It snows in the winter and rains in the fall. And most of the year it’s dark. If you were to draw a straight line eastward you’d end up in Siberia.
Gävle is known for a few things and outdoor furniture isn’t one of them, for obvious reasons. Light and warmth are scarce resources. Can you imagine the value of an hour of sunshine here? That was a rhetorical question. No, you can’t, unless you were born here. We make our furniture for these precious moments; for the short Swedish summers. We can’t compromise because every second counts. We make furniture to withstand everything that nature throws at it. If they’re good here, they’re good wherever they end up.
