About us:

  

   Stockholms Förgyllning & Bildhuggeri


(Swedish for "Stockholm Gilding & Woodcarving")

is a one man, one woman gilding company. It has been started by the two of us, Christer, who is the furniture maker and woodcarver, and Lotta, who is the company´s gilder.




This happened after we had taken over an old Stockholm-based gilding company, where the both of us had been working for several years.




We have gone through a long education and manifold work experience in our own fields, education and work experiance both in Sweden as well as in Italy. This passion is rooted in a genuine interest and curiosity for our craft, which is a matter of lifestyle for us.







Our goal is to keep the craft alive and preserve its tradition while at the same time using these old, widely known techniques in new contexts for a modern taste.
