Karin_larsson_schommelstoel

This rocking chair was designed by Karin in 1906. It was painted a strong red, probably the same as the sofa (cf. Tuesday’s Post) and has become yellow with age. Next week on the Post, Bauhaus design: obviously influenced by the Larssons but with generally more muted colours and without the domestic imagery (for example a Bauhaus rocking chair would not have cushions because they would spoil the aesthetic purity; but in real family life cushions are a necessity).
