Fabriken - Part I
Photography by Up The Wooden Hills
Louise Friestedt and Johan Larsson both have a great sense when it comes to finding beautiful things and started to collect vintage items many years ago. In October last year they opened the store Fabriken (english translation: The Factory) with a range of furniture, furnishings and clothing from 1900 to now. Fabriken is located in a beautiful space at Ekedalsgatan in Majorna, the vest part of Gothenburg. Last week I had a chance to stop by before closing time to take some pictures.
Fabriken's environment is very welcoming, cosy, beautifully decorated and artfully arranged, with nice carpets, pretty garlands in each window and pendants and chairs hanging from the ceiling. The shop is filled with all sorts of old and new treasures worth saving up your pennies for - dining groups, beautiful chairs, vintage leather bags, big neon letters, Burberry coats, brogues, cufflinks, school posters, cookie jars, toys, maps of the world, men's shirts, pretty photo frames, porcelain figures, wooden animals, vases and clocks among other things.

If you live in Gothenburg or plan to visit the city you should definitely stop by Fabriken and say hello!
