When I first started this room it took me forever to find the right kind of furniture . It seemed nothing worked out with the painted German "Schrank" (armoire) I wanted to use as a focal point. I was frustrated to the point of giving up - until I found these wonderful Swedish settees, which really got me going. I believe I successfully combined the painted German alpine farmers "Schrank" and grandfather's clock with the Swedish settees, the exquisite Chinese chests which I love, a Victorian style mirror, and Moroccan accessories, including the coffee table. Not to forget the fabulous paintings. Unfortunately, I don't know the name of the artist. All in all, I think this turned out to be a very happy room.
