Wood is characterized by clear lines and its distinct wooden frame. In both shape and choice of honest materials it reflects the Swedese design tradition as well as Yngve Ekström’s personal vision of creating elegant furniture using tactile materials, exemplified here in the combination of wooden details and textiles. In particular, the wooden frames of each sofa have been carefully selected and treated, in order to have the finest quality of natural grains present in the wood that will age with beauty and grace.

Swedese is a classic Swedish furniture producer with a strong presence in both the commercial and domestic domain. Swedese's ideals are the same today as they have been for the past seventy years. These are to create beautiful furniture for the future, which build on the foundations of Scandinavian modern traditions, designed by forward-looking designers who share in the timeless ideals of architecture. Swedese was founded in 1945 by the two brothers Yngve and Jerker Ekström and Sven Bertil Sjöqvist, with Yngve leading the company until his death. The most well known design of Yngve Ekström extensive portfolio is the Lamino chair from 1956, which is still manufactured today and sold all over the world.
