Lars and Barbro Andersson, Katrineholm, Sweden.
Barbro Andersson was only 24 years old when she acquired the property by Djulösjön outside Katrineholm in Södermanland.
The modern house she and her husband Lars eventually built was strongly influenced by the Danish modernist architecture that the young couple met in Denmark and Skåne and fell in love with. In 1979, it was time for them to build the house of their dreams.
The design and fashion-loving couple filled the house with exciting form and design, an interest that came to follow them over the years.
Already in 1962, they bought the three iconic PK25 armchairs, designed by Poul Kjaerholm and which in the new home were placed directly as an eye-catcher just inside the entrance.
Already the following year, the pair "Scimitar armchairs" by Fabricius & Kastholm were bought and then they continued with Arne Norell's "Ari" and "Inka" along with other exciting designer objects, especially Italian lamps.
Josef Frank said that a home should never be finished and it also seems to have been this family's guiding light. The latest furniture was purchased for the home in the early 2000s.
The collection will be sold at three auctions this autumn: the theme auction E803 'Vi satte bo år 1962' (online only) and at the two live auctions Contemporary Art & Design on 2 November and the Modern Art + Design auction on 17-18 November.
