those clever swedes ...

From this ...

... to this!

A 1940's Swedish treasure, we just finished restoring a super-amazing 3-piece lounge by Svegards.  Put together, it was a nice, clean and modern looking set - all open lines and pretty detailing ...

But the crazy amazing thing is that 2 armchairs and a 2-seater sofa pulled apart (no screws, no bolts) and fitted into the back seat of a sedan - including cushions!  An early example of "KD" (knock-down) furniture, you can see where IKEA are coming from.

Sad to say goodbye to such a beautiful set, but it went to a good home, so all OK.  Life would be so easy if all our favorite pieces packed up so neatly.
