Swedish Grace was a new classical movement in architecture, art and furniture in Sweden in the first part of the twentieth century. It had a major influence on architecture and design throughout Europe and the United States. Swedish Grace has been largely forgotten since architecture took a different direction in the 1930s. As architecture, art and design enters the twenty-first century, it is time for a re-evaluation of this important movement. Swedish Grace shows how tradition and modernity can be combined to create architecture, art and design of great sophistication and beauty.
