A study in harmony-Duivenvoorden home.

A vignette graces the Lyon table from Artilleriet.

Christian  Duivenvoorden is the founder of the fabulous Interior Boutique Artilleriet in Gothenburg. The home he shares with his husband Björn in a Jugend style (Art Nouveau) former organ factory in Gothenburg is a harmonious haven filled with beautiful things amid Farrow & Ball’s poetic pallette. There is a very warm and organic feel to this home, one would expect nothing less from a man whose store has become a Nordic Interior Design Mecca.
