Hemmakväll easy chair

Many of Malmsten’s designs originated in the late 19th century upholstered furniture for the bourgeoisie. He was inspired without copying; his ability to make use of tradition without getting stuck in old ideals was unwaivering. Hemmakväll was the first item of furniture in a series for the family and was first shown in 1956 when the so called Key Workshops demonstrated their skills at the exhibition Living Swedish Tradition at the Röhsska Museum of Design and Craft in Gothenburg.
