Iconic design —  Swedish Modernist architect Kerstin Horlin Holmquist's Paradis sofa, created during her tenure at NK - Nordiska Kompaniet, 1956-57, holds a soft simplicity; unique in its appearance - light, clean lines and gracious with an air of romance.

Holmquist, one of the few women designers working in the 1950's wanted to create designs for the modern home without worrying about short-lived trends. How timeless her approach has been.

Today her designs are highly treasured collectibles and this Paradis sofa, reupholstered for today's home in a luxurious Schumacher fabric is the epitome of Scandinavian cool — currently at home — at The Flat.
