Carl Larsson-gården in Sundborn

Carl Larsson-gården in Sundborn is an icon in Swedish interior design and family life. Carl Larsson was one of Sweden’s most well loved artists through the ages. Karin Larsson was a trendsetting designer long before her time. During the guided tour of the house, you will find out more about the world famous artist couple and their hectic, beautiful life.

Sweden's most famous home is a product of two special people who combined their creativity to produce magic.

Carl Larsson was born in Gamla stan, the old quarter of Stockholm, on 28 May 1853. His family was poor and Carl grew up in dismal circumstances. The only glimmer of hope was his strong artistic talent, which emerged early on in his life. When he was thirteen years old.

Karin Bergöö was born in 1859 and grew up in Hallsberg, where her father was a successful businessman. Karin’s artistic talent showed itself early and she began to study art at the Arts and Crafts School (Slöjdskolan) in Stockholm. Following this she went on to the Art Academy (Konstakademien) 1877-1882.
