Karin Laserow, my mother, has written a book! During the last 9 months she has been writing, designing and creating this master piece. Its about Swedish Antiques in contemporary interiors, an inspirational tool for anyone who is interested in antiques. It gives you great guidance how to separate newly produced from antique furniture, to put an estimate on an antique but also how to decorate with them. There are plenty of books out there about antiques but this book is for the contemporary reader who wants to learn more about antiques and learn how to mix them into their interiors. To get a good understanding about antiques the book gives you a basic knowledge within the periods of Swedish furniture history such as: Baroque, Rococo, Empire, Gustavian and Jugend.

Book launch is set to September 2012 in Sweden.
