A collection inspired by Carl Larsson
At Cupboards & Goods we are very proud to have been commissioned by the family trust of acclaimed Swedish artist couple Carl Larsson and Karin Bergöö Larsson to build a new kitchen for the Carl Larsson-gården in Sundborn, where the couple lived and worked from 1889 to 1912. The kitchen that Cupboards & Goods has built for the Carl Larsson family trust was showcased at the 2020 edition of Stockholm Design Week, and was installed in it’s final location at Carl Larsson-gården during the spring of 2020. The collaboration with Carl Larsson-gården has resulted in a limited edition colour collection called Ett Hem (Swedish for ‘a home’)
While Carl Larsson was the eternal painter, his wife and muse Karin Bergöö Larsson gave birth to eight children and turned her focus to raising them and creating a lively family home. She designed both furniture and textiles that were, along with the children, some of Larsson’s favourite models. The Larsson family were forward thinkers in both style and family life. Contrary to common practice in those days, the couple’s children were very much a present part of family life. This is also the thought behind our kitchens. They are built to be part of everyday life, to stand the tests of time, boisterous children and hungry pets and still age gracefully.
For MELIMELI’s new store at Slussplan 5 in Stockholm we launched two new colors that reflect MELIMELI’s sense of style. The turquoise color was named Respiro and the pink color Korall. In the kitchen you’ll also find our marble sink and kitchen faucet from the Roma series.
