Tre Sekel: A New Furniture Line from Sweden, Classics Included

March 28, 2016

Launched in May 2013, Tre Sekel (which translates to “Three Centuries” in Swedish) produces furniture from three eras: classic 18th-century Gustavian furniture, midcentury designs from the archives of Carl Malmsten, and new pieces by contemporary designers Emma Olbers and Thomas Sandell. “Great design and quality craftsmanship always fit into any kind of environment, regardless of the era from which the pieces originate,” the company’s founders say. “In the same way that art from different epochs always mixes brilliantly together, as long as the quality is high.” See the full line at Tre Sekel.
