Classic Fixtures and Fittings from Byggfabriken in Sweden

Issue 24 · Scandi Midsummer · June 20, 2014

Swedish company Byggfabriken (translation: "Build Factory") has two stores—one in Stockholm and one in Malmo—and produces its own line of retro-styled hardware and fixtures designed to "work in old houses and apartments in Sweden," according to the owners. "Our goal is to create classic fittings that allow homeowners to maintain or restore the original qualities of a home or building during a renovation or restoration."

N.B. Byggfabriken ships worldwide on orders of more than SEK 1,000 (approximately $150).
