One of the briefest, yet among the most remarkable eras of 20th century design would have to be Sweden’s 1920s romantic national style known as Swedish Grace, combining Neoclassicism with Art Deco. British journalist Philip Morton Shand was first to use the term to describe and underline the simple elegance of this golden decade. Refined pieces of furniture, simple lines enhanced by exquisite details and ancient motifs, all handmade with extraordinary craftsmanship.
