The iconic Swedish designer Carl Malmsten opened his shop in 1940 and promoted rustic, simple furniture of quality craftsmanship and materials. His grandson, Jerk, reopened the Ostermalm store after renovating the space with a large skylight in the main showroom, painting the walls a neutral white, and maintaining the basement as an archive for Carl's furniture. Selections from Carl's designs include a 1949 pink samsa sofa with red polka dots and the Little Åland, a tiny Windsor chair that fits on a shelf. The store also sells furniture and accessories from Swedish companies such as BSweden, Vaxbo Lin, and Gustavsburg.
