Christopher and Jennie are partners in life as well as business. They started ‘our children’s Gorilla‘ in 2002 by designing and producing home accessories and toys. They’re united in the belief that their emphasis should be on products that encourage imagination and creativity. This carries over into their own home in Stockholm.
Their rooms are filled with color, texture and family history. In the living room a bright apple-green sofa and assorted wicker chairs are covered in vintage floral fabrics. Artwork on the back wall is done by Jennie.
Beautiful Alvar Aalto chairs and bench surround a picnic style maple table to seat twelve comfortably. A wedding gift of a sculpture by Lisa Larsson acts as a centerpiece.
Vintage floral paper covers the wall behind the bed.
If you have kids, you need a play room. Their son enjoys this space with an Alvar Aalto table and chairs scaled down just right for him.
