Stockholm Style and Design

Stockholm Style & Design with WSJ. Magazine

The Swedish capital balances past and present with Scandinavian aplomb, its historic palaces and grand hotels co-existing with cutting-edge boutiques, restaurants and hot-spot bars. And while Stockholm looks like it is perpetually camera-ready for a magazine photo shoot, its vibe remains approachable and laid-back. On this journey, explore the city’s renowned design, fashion and architecture scenes, meeting with insightful locals along the way—including leading architects, art historians and curators. Plus: tour revered galleries and museums and visit historic homes and design shops, including the world-famous Svenskt Tenn, Drottningholm Palace and the Indagare-adored hotel Ett Hem, in the company of expert hosts: WSJ. contributing editor Sarah Medford and Indagare founder Melissa Biggs Bradley.
