Swedish Coffee Table Books For Your Living RoomMay 3, 2018
Having a stack of Swedish coffee table books may not be very lagom of us, but sometimes having a beautiful book or two strategically placed on a table is all the décor you really need.
Here are six Swedish coffee table books that will help jazz up your living room table.
Country Houses of Sweden, Barbara and René Stoeltie
If you’re into photography and enjoy looking at Swedish homes and architecture, this book is perfect. The authors toured Sweden and snapped photos of castles – and even Astrid Lindgren’s childhood home.
Fika: The Art of the Swedish Coffee Break, Anna Brones
This book dives into the history of fika, talks about fika-related vocabulary and gives you recipes to help perfect your own fika. We’re, of course, big fans of this book.
Andy Warhol: Portraits of Ingrid Bergman, Andy Warhol
Pop art fans, rejoice! This monograph is 48 pages and full of silkscreen images of Swedish actress Ingrid Bergman.
The Swedish Table, Helene Henderson
This is a cookbook by Swedish-born Helene Henderson, who now has an organic farm in Malibu, Calif. Not the most traditional book to keep on a coffee table, but for those who like flipping through and looking at recipes, it’s a good one.
The Vanilla Days Are Over, Volvo
It looks like this book is only available for sale overseas, but it gives an insider’s look into the design centers at Volvo and dives into the design story of the Volvo coupe.
IKEA the Book: Designers, Products and Other Stuff, Staffan Bengtsson
If you’re an IKEA fan, or a design enthusiast, this book details the company’s humble beginnings and is full of products and design inspiration.
