Shopper’s Diary: Garbo Interiors in Stockholm

Michelle Slatalla December 13, 2012

Tucked into a corner of an old factory building in Stockholm's central Östermalm neighborhood is an unexpected seasonal greenhouse, filled with scented pots of hyacinths and amaryllis bulbs and vases of fragrant flowers.

In addition to rustic garden furniture and outdoor accessories, home design shop Garbo Interiors sells a mix of antique furniture, Gustavian reproductions, candles and vintage urns in its greenhouse. Let's do some Christmas shopping:

Above: Potted pelargoniums are popular windowsill plants in Sweden, where they spend winters being coddled indoors; the national obsession is known as pelargonsjukan, which translates to "pelargonic disease."

Above: Tuscan pots in gray, light pink and terra cotta are for sale with or without plants.
