Miss Clara: Glamorous Comfort in Stockholm

Issue 24 · Scandi Midsummer · June 20, 2014

Swedish hotelier Nobis Group have renovated a former girls' school in an Art Nouveau building, transforming it into Stockholm’s latest must-visit hotel. At Miss Clara, the guest rooms offer sparse yet warmly detailed Scandi comforts, and the public spaces are resplendent with Art Nouveau décor.

Above: The renovation of the 1910 building was carried out by Swedish architect Gert Wingårdh. While sparsely furnished, the guest rooms are rich in texture. A herringbone-patterned wood floor continues up the walls to form a wainscot. An elegant valet perched at the bottom of the bed is made from bentwood and echoes the form of a Thonet chair
