Carl Malmsten Furniture Studies Program

The school, Carl Malmsten Furniture Studies, offers 3 year programs in Furniture Design,
Cabinet-Making, Furniture Upholstery and Furniture Conservation.
It is situated on Lidingö, a beautiful island in the Stockholm archipelago.

Designer Charlie Styrbjörn who designed the Göteborg collection for IoU Design,
is a graduate this fine school.
Thanks to Charlie, I was able to meet the head of the Furniture Upholstery Program,
Sara Lindqvist, who provided valuable information regarding how
the SHIMA-SHIMA cushion covers should be sewn.
