Hörlin-Holmquist, Kerstin

(1925 - 1997)

Kerstin Hörlin-Holmquist was a Swedish architect and furniture designer. Shortly after the War, she worked and studied in England, where she became interested in the classic English upholstered furniture. Back in Sweden, she studied design at the Konstfack in Stockholm from 1948 to 1952.

She worked for Nordiska Kompanie in the years 1952 – 1964, where she designed both furniture and textiles. In the period 1957-57 she designed her ‘Paradiset’ (‘paradise’) line of furniture for the Nordiska ‘Triva’ series.

Bloomberry is an antiques dealer specialized in exquisite twentieth century design, founded in 2005 by Patricia Keurentjes and Leander Meerman. Our strength is that we read the past differently and do have a keen eye for yet little known masterpieces. Our company is housed in a former textile factory that spans 5.000 square meters. It is located just near Maastricht, in the south of the Netherlands, within two hours from Amsterdam, Bruxelles and Cologne. Only part of the collection is shown on the website.
