This superb book, by a leading Swedish specialist in interiors, richly illustrated with images specially taken by a leading Swedish photographer, examines in detail examples from royal palaces to farmhouses, from the 15th century to the end of the 19th century.

These stories of Swedish country houses is a mirror of Swedish social history, its hierarchy of classes, its absorption of European styles and movements, and above all the enduring character of its own culture. Susanna Scherman (nominated in 2007 for the Agust Prize) has included examples from every level, drawing special attention to the qualities that make them unique: she is the acknowledged expert on that vital and most picturesque element of the Swedish interior, the tiled stove.
